On Wednesday 18th June just under 320 primary school students from Beech Grove, Langford Budville, Rockwell Green, Sampford Arundel, St. Johns, Wellesley Park and West Buckland joined the Court Fields School choir for The Big Sing. Students have been rehearsing with their teachers since April in order to learn all the songs for the morning and it was with great excitement that we all gathered in the Sports Hall at Court Fields for the climax of all the preparations.
Work had begun back in April when the primary school music coordinators met at Court Fields School to be taught the songs and techniques by Kirtsen Wordley from Somerset Music. Workshops were held in each school in the ensuing weeks and then we all gathered for the Big Sing on Friday 20th June. Parents and staff formed the audience and were treated to the sound of over 350 children’s voices singing a variety of music ranging from Native American Chants to All Together Now by The Farm. A highlight was the solo verses sung by the Court Fields Choir.
This year’s whole school production of Grease took place on March 26th & 27th and played to sell-out audiences. Everyone who came to watch was impressed with the high standards that the cast achieved and a fantastic time was had by the cast, crew and the audience. Congratulations to all those involved!
