Choir

Welcome back to the choir!

This term always proves to be the most busy of the year so the choir are already learning some new songs and working hard singing in different parts.  We are fortunate to have Miss Laura Taylor come and work with us for the next couple of weeks which the children are really looking forward to.

Preparations will be taking place soon for the Christmas Production as well as our visits to the Bridges Shopping Centre and hopefully some other venues before Christmas.

With our previous Year 6 having left, we do unusually have a few spare places in the choir so if you fancy joining and having some fun please let the office know. 

If you have any questions or need further information please let me know.

Regards,

Mrs Curry

At the Pavillion and Dairy Lane care centre

The choir had two great afternoons entertaining the residents of the Pavillion Care Centre and the Dairy Lane Care Centre.  They sang a range of Carols, some songs from productions they have performed and ended with a Rock Around the Shops performance.

Afterwards, the children were treat to a nice cold drink and a sweet treat for all their hard work!  They have been asked to return again and entertain the residents.

Sunderland Illuminations

IMG0767The choir had an amazing time singing at the Sunderland Illuminations on Thursday 2nd November.  Although it was a cold night, it didn't stop the choir from singing some of their favourite songs and adding their own dance moves too.  They even enjoyed introducing the songs to the audience using the very loud microphone!  Thank you to all the relatives/friends who came and supported the choir-the children enjoyed having you there!

The events team from the illuminations were very impressed with the choir and donated each of them a small gift which they really liked.  Keep an eye out for our next events as we have a lot going on in November and December!

 

Choir - Autumn Term

IMG0740We have been working hard in choir this half term, practising new songs ready for the festive season.  We have also been improving some of the songs we already know for our performances at the Illuminations, Care Homes and The Bridges Shopping Centre.

After half term, we will also be learning the songs for our Christmas production which will be in mid December.

Kepier Choir Festival

The second choir festival took place at Kepier school on Wednesday 7th December.  The children from all the schools were fantastic and sang beautifully.  Kepier school choir started the concert off, followed by our choir here at East Rainton, then Eppleton and ending with Newbottle. The children were able to see how they could could continue their singing once they leave Primary school and move to secondary school by joining a secondary choir.

Thank you to all the parents/relatives and friends who supported the children-it makes the event even more special to them-I do hope you were lucky in the raffle?!  Mrs Hall took some lovely photographs of the event.
