Southend Music Festival 2018

Recorder players from West Leigh participated in the Southend Music Festival recently. This annual event offers musicians the chance to prepare pieces to perform in front of an audience. We also have the opportunity to hear individual feedback from an experienced adjudicator. Our groups had been rehearsing for weeks with Mrs Gentleman and Miss Fisher. All that attention to detail really paid off as both groups were praised for their professional presentation and good sense of ensemble (musical ‘togetherness’). Our Upper School Group presented ‘Michael row the boat ashore’ and ‘What shall we do with a drunken sailor?’, demonstrating a range of harmony parts. Our Year 4 Group played ‘Union St

Year 5 poetry performance

As a part of our English work on performance poetry, year 5 children were set the task to work in groups and collaborate on a piece of choral speaking. Each class worked on their own choice of poem and the children then worked within small groups to generate ideas for their given section. Huge amounts of hard work and effort were put into this challenge and all of the year 5 staff were very pleased with what the children produced – you can see the final results in the videos below! 5D - Cinderella by Roald Dahl 5J - The Cremation of Sam McGee By Robert W Service 5N - The Emperor's New Clothes by Roald Dahl 5P - Matilda By Hilaire Belloc

Year 5/6 Tag Rugby B Team Festival

On Thursday 8th November, 12 pupils attended the Year 5/6 Tag Rugby B Team Festival. For many of the children, it was highly anticipated especially as many of them have suffered the disappointment of not being able to attend the Year 4 competition last year after the event was postponed and eventually cancelled. Considering that the group of pupils had not played together before, they performed exceptionally well in the four games that they played winning three games and drawing the other match. As the afternoon progressed, they were able to improve their skills and even managed to win their final game.
