School Showcase 2016-2017
Everyone enjoyed the Festival of Running at Edmondscote Athletics Track in June. Ninety three children attended the event as they had achieved a half marathon or more at school as part of the Marathon Kids programme. It was great to be able to reward the children efforts and achievements over the year.
The whole school turned out to cheer on the Aviva Women's Cycle Tour.
A team from Google's Expeditions Pioneer Programme visited the school to share a virtual reality app built for the classroom. Expeditions enables teachers to take their classess on virtual field trips, through collections of 360 degree and 3D images, pointing out interesting sights along the way.
The federation choir took part in the one of the largest school choir concerts in the world in January. The concert, organised by the Young Voices enterprise, featured 6,500 children performing to a sell-out crowd of parents. The performance included a diverse range of songs and actions. The concert was led by David Lawrence, one of the UK's most versatile conductors. The children, Miss Mclean & Miss Painter had spent many months rehearsing all the songs, and the children's behaviour and enthusiasm on the day was outstanding. Thanks go to the PTA's of All Saints' and Emscote who paid for the choir to take part in the concert.
We helped paint a silk panel which will be illuminated by being hung in front of a window in All Saints' church in the run up to Christmas.
Children wore their scouting and guiding organisation uniforms as a mark of respect on Remembrance Day.
Years 1 and 2 enjoyed their trip to Warwick Arts Centre to see a screening of James and The Giant Peach, thanks to free cinema seats from the Into Film Festival and the buses paid for by the Friends.
Mad Science delivered an entertaining and educational assembly for the whole school.
The whole school turned out to cheer on the competitors in the Aviva Women's Tour which passed through Warwick on the second stage of this important professional women's cycling event.
The federation choir had the most amazing day on 14th June - the opportunity to perform on stage at the Royal Albert Hall in London. After learning songs during choir sessions in school with Miss McLean and Miss Painter the children travelled to London and rehearsed as part of a choir of 2000 children from across England, participating in the Armonico Consort AC Academy. In the evening they performed to a very enthusiastic audience of families and friends who had also travelled across the country to attend. The photos show our children, who were actually performing throughout from the centre of the stage. What an amazing experience, one which was thoroughly enjoyed by all of our children and families and will be one which we'll remember forever!
