Year 5 Vocal Festival

Children from Year 5 took part in a vocal festival yesterday. This is organised annually by all the headteachers, of all of the Wyvern cluster of schools, and involves groups of infants, junior children and the senior choir from Wyvern. It is a wonderful opportunity for our children to sing in large choirs, with different, complex choral arrangements. It also helps them aspire to how they might pursue singing at secondary school.

The theme this year was ‘Rivers and Oceans’ and they had learned the songs in school with Mrs Miller over the last few weeks. The whole arrangement was put together and conducted by choral director Paula Thomson. The preparation culminated in a concert to parents at Thornden Hall theatre and the singing was superb! My thanks to Mrs Miller who has been teaching the children the songs and gave up her evening to accompany them. Mrs Miller is amazing in so many ways but supports so much singing work across the school, especially at Christmas and this is another example of the contribution she makes!
