1ST’s Musical Extravaganza

Class 1ST displayed a colourful and energetic ‘Spring Celebrations’ assembly last Thursday morning. The eager audience were delightfully taken on a whirl wind tour of celebrations from around the world. All as a result of hard working children the audience were taken to Thailand to learn about Songkran, India to watch a colourful Holi dance, Gloucestershire, England to witness a cheese rolling event, Bulgaria to see the lovely Martenitsas hanging on a blossom tree to celebrate Baba Marta Day and an Easter song –Hot Cross Buns. There were songs, a dance and musical talents displayed on the chime bars. A lovely way to see in the Easter holidays. Well done to all the children for all their hard work they have earned a well-deserved rest!
