Welcome to our News in Brief page! Here we will celebrate some of the fantastic activities around our school in words and pictures.

World Book Day 2016

Thank you to parents for sorting out costumes for the children to wear as part of our World Book Day celebrations. The children had a fabulous time dressing up and showed off their characters in our special assembly.
The day was filled with different ‘book’ activities and the sound of Miss Ludlow playing her trumpet signalled to everyone to drop everything and read at key points! We hope the day will help keep reading a high priority in the school and encourage the children to read as much as possible. The children looked wonderful, with so many interesting and ‘creative’ book characters; there were a number of Harry Potters, several Cat in the Hats and quite a few Wallys!

Young Voices 2016

Four years running for Moulton Primary; and again 65 children, as part of the Yr5 & 6 choir have been learning songs (and dance moves) in preparation for the Young Voices concert series. On Tuesday, we travelled to the Genting (formerly LG) Arena in Birmingham to take part in this huge event. Over 6000 children in a massed choir took to the stage to perform in front of an audience of nearly 10 000 with big names such as Laura Wright, Tom Billington, and The Beatbox Collective. It was an epic day, with long rehearsals, and a buzz of excitement gradually building.

When the lights went down, the magic really started and it was a spectacular 20th anniversary concert. Singing a Madness Medley, Pop songs, Gospels, Video Killed The Radio Star, specially commissioned songs and backing the artists for World In Union….and the UK’s biggest David Bowie tribute (a spine-tingling version of Life on Mars) made this a spectacle for all! The children have worked extremely hard, were impeccably behaved and were a real credit to the school. Many thanks to our parents, who have not only supported (endured?) the singing for 4 months, but came to the concert and cheered us on. I hope you enjoyed it.

After every year I consider the sheer amount of work it takes for everyone involved, and whether to take part again. 2017? Will we take part?... I can’t wait for the next set of music to arrive!

Young Voices will stage 20 concerts this year at large arenas around the country and provides an unrivalled musical opportunity for over 120 000 primary school children to perform all styles of music including folk, pop, rock and classical. It is designed to unify children from across the region, boost their confidence and provide lifelong memories for them and their families.

Videos and photos of the event can be found on YouTube (see videos below), via the Young Voices app.
