Well done to the 39 children in the Parkfield choir that performed at the Rochdale Music Festival today. They sang a total of four songs in two separate competitions against a number of schools across Rochdale. They sang at the beautiful town hall in Rochdale in front of over 300 people. The event was a wonderful experience for all and proved that we have an incredible choir when compared with others across the borough. In both competitions the choir were 'highly commended' scoring 75 and 83 out of 100. The scores prove that with hard work and determination great things can be achieved.
Year 3 enjoyed learning about different methods of digital communication this afternoon and compared different apps that help you do it.
The whole school enjoyed celebrating this year’s World book day and their love of reading by not only creating some fantastic dress-up designs, but also by taking part in a ‘book swap’ event in which they exchanged gently used books with each other.
Year 3 enjoyed learning how to use the Camera+ app this afternoon to add filters and borders to photos and used Pages to write instructions explaining the steps they followed.
The choir enjoyed a day out at Manchester Arena to take part in the Young Voices concert. They were part of a 7,032 strong choir with children from all over the North West. Throughout the day they rehearsed with the conductor and artists from the show. The evening involved performing to over 10,000 people at the arena. The performance was a fantastic experience for all involved and something that they will remember for the rest of their lives!
