Year 1 bring us to our senses!

Tuesday’s class assembly from Year 1 was a real treat – a feast of art, poetry, music and confident performance!  The audience sat in ‘moonlight’ as the performance began, with a stunning NASA moon photograph backdrop, tiny candles on the stage and ‘Clair de Lune’ (‘Light of the Moon’) by Debussy playing.  The children have been exploring their five senses, and showed us some beautiful moonlit landscapes they had been inspired to paint.  Then they took us back 130 years to a seaside town in Denmark to introduce us to  Peter Krøyer and his wife Marie,  together with Michael Ancher,  his wife Anna and their daughter Helga, a group of artists who displayed their paintings in Brøndum’s Hotel.  Helga inherited the hotel, which is still running today! The audience were invited to see the pictures and even given tickets to the exhibition. Finally, we were treated to a sweet rendition of Moon River and a poem.

Thank you to all the parents and family members who came to see the assembly and share some proud moments with the children afterwards. Enjoy the gallery!

Year 1 preparing for class assembly

We couldn’t resist sharing this picture: a cheeky,  sneaky preview of Year 1’s class assembly next Tuesday. It shows Oliver getting into role as Peter Krøyer, a 19th Century Danish impressionist who lived in Skagen, Jutland, Denmark. All parents are welcome to join us on Tuesday morning in The Barn from 8.50am to see the children in action – and find out more about this fascinating artist!
