On Thursday 18th March 2018 we were delighted to welcome year 5 pupils from St Andrew’s CofE Primary School to Archbishop Temple School.
The children took part in an art and a music workshop, in preparation for an Easter Concert in the evening. They spent the morning with Mr Trevor Bartlett, Percussion Teacher, creating catchy rhythms and samba beats in an energetic percussion workshop. The children also took part in an art workshop with Mrs A. Smith, Technology Teacher, taking inspiration from Roald Dahl's children's stories to make brightly coloured masks. Some children chose to decorate Willy Wonka's top hat, others created a Fantastic Mr Fox mask, some opted for the Giraffe from the Giraffe the Pelly and Me and there were also some delightfully grubby looking Mr Twit beards. Children could use paints, pencils and coloured paper to decorate their masks.
In the evening everyone took part in Archbishop Temple's Easter Concert. The concert included performances by St Andrew's Year 5 choir and singers, Junior Jazz, Archbishop Temple School's Junior and Senior Concert Bands and ATS8. Charlotte Turnbull also performed a solo on Alto Sax. The pupils from St Andrew's also had the opportunity to show off the beats and rhythms that they had learned during the day with a lively percussion performance.
It was a pleasure to work with the pupils from St Andrew’s CofE Primary School, they were impeccably behaved and seemed to really enjoy both workshops. Many thanks to Mrs C. Gardner, Head of Music, for organising the concert and sessions. The day was a nice opportunity for pupils to get a taste of life at secondary school. We look forward to welcoming pupils and parents back into school for our open evening on Thursday 5th July 5.30pm - 8pm.
