Immy Coote was the runner up in the Bidwells' art competition. Well done!
British soldiers heard a familiar tune on Christmas Eve - it was the German soldiers singing Silent Night. Soon both sides were singing the familiar carol in their native languages. Mrs Fielding White (having lived in Germany for a number of years) was able to teach the class the carol in both English and German. Some children in the class speak a different language at home and were encouraged to learn the song in their language too. This video has three verses -English, German and then a mixture of all the languages spoken in our class.
Mrs Williams’ class music
This half term we have been looking at songs that were sung by soldiers during World War 1. ‘It’s a long way to Tipperary’ and ‘Pack up your Troubles’ are war time classics that the children enjoyed learning and performing.
