Trip to Bridgewater Hall
Miss Daley treated St Joseph’s choir to a trip to the Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on Wednesday 4th February 2015.
Fifty children from Years 3 – 6 were rewarded for attending choir practice each week and performing at Bedford Care home, the Infant Nativity and the Autumn Fair. They have worked hard and enjoyed being a member of the school choir and this concert called Halle in the Sun was a real treat. The children listened to the Halle Orchestra LIVE!
The concert was an opportunity to explore orchestral music related to a theme; the Halle Orchestra was conducted by Jamie Phillips and presented by Tom Redmond.
Our Key Stage 2 pupils enjoyed this Concert, learning about the sections of the orchestra, different composers and with the use of scratch and sniff cards, the moods of the music.
It was an exciting, educational and music-filled experience!

During the second half of Spring
They talked about
They discussed stranger danger and reminded children not to trust anyone they don’t know. If their parents haven’t informed them or school about any change of arrangements for picking up or walking home then not to do them.
Chris and Chucky also explained the importance of following school rules and the consequences of breaking rules. Being respectful and trying their best are all good life skills that they’ll need when they finish school and live in the working world.
They are to return to school in the summer term to speak to the Infant children about keeping safe and crossing the roads etc.

Exploring the Sonnet
As part of the celebration of Shakespeare Week in school, the children were invited to learn and perform some of his sonnets.
It was a great pleasure for me to work with our children and introduce them to the beauty,
I was surprised by the enthusiasm of the response, thinking that the children might be overwhelmed by the strangeness of the iambic pentameter, the subtlety of the themes and the sheer richness of imagery. Not a bit of it! They loved it.
