Fabulous Folk Dancing - Year 4's Ceilidh

On Tuesday 2nd April, Year 4 were lucky enough to take part in a ceilidh at Wildern School.  This event was organised by Mrs Watling, our music teacher, alongside a company called FolkActive.
The children played a piece called Galopede on their recorders, while children from Wildern and Wellstead Primary School danced along.  For the rest of the afternoon, they danced fantastically well to music played by the two other schools.  The children have really engaged in learning the dances and this was clearly evident throughout the afternoon.  They even managed to encourage their parents, other family members and staff to join in!
I could not have been more proud of their behaviour and dedication during the afternoon.  They were an absolute credit to Kings Copse.  Well done Year 4, you are awesome!
I would also like to say a huge thank you to everyone who came with us, this amazing event would not have been possible without your support.  I hope you enjoyed the afternoon!

Listen2Me Spring Concert

On Wednesday 3rd April, Years 2 and 4 treated us to another fantastic Listen2Me concert.  The performance started with Mrs Staniforth's musicians playing us some beautiful pieces.  This was followed by Years 3 and 4 showing off their skills on the descant and treble recorders following another term of hard work with Mrs Watling.
Thank you to all the parents for coming and well done to everyone involved, you were fantastic!

The Big Pedal Finale

We had a special visit today from Bike it Ray, also known as Batray.  To markk the end of The Big Pedal in which schools have competed to have the most healthy, sustainable journeys to and from school.

Batray visited around 10 of the local school stopping at them to show of his fabulous bike and deliver certificates.  Out of over 2000 schools across the country we achieved a position in the early hundreds of which we are very proud.  Well done Everybody.

Healthy sustainable travel is so important as it keeps our bodies fit and healthy and ready to learn.

Thank you everybody for taking part.
