Red, White & Blue Day
On Friday 11th September Miss Sarah Jane, ‘The Vintage Singer’ came and performed for us! She had originally been booked for our ‘VE 75 Years Day’ back in May, but lockdown meant that couldn’t happen. Undaunted we arranged for her to come in September, to celebrate us all being back together again and to mark the end of our themed diversity week.
We were very mindful that everyone needed to be safe and we were very lucky with the weather, which meant that we could hold the performances outside. We held two performances and made sure all year group bubbles were socially distanced from each other.
Miss Sarah-Jane sang songs from the 1940s, explaining to the children that the songs were the top of the charts in their day and the singers were the 1940s’ equivalent to today’s Little Mix and Justin Bieber!
The children ate their lunch while watching the concert, it was like a real street party! One of our school governors, Ms Janet Dunn, also joined us for the concert, she helped to make sure we were all safely enjoying the day. The concerts ended with the song ‘We’ll Meet Again’. It was a really lovely way to celebrate being back in school together again!
