Well done to the pupils from years three, four, five and six who represented our school in the cross country race held in Market Harborough. It was great to have so many keen runners taking part again, thank you to Mr Baylis for supporting the team.
Well done to the year five pupils who took part in the celebration concert held at DeMontfort Hall. We were delighted to have been chosen to take part and it was a wonderful afternoon.
To celebrate the 70th Anniversary an exciting and ambitious large-scale project, working collaboratively with the Philharmonia Orchestra was commissioned. This gave a unique opportunity to create a legacy for future musicians to enjoy and to give students the chance to show their creative skills by composing and performing their own piece of celebratory music working alongside professional musicians. It also celebrated the rich, cultural diversity of the work both organisations deliver.
Legend of the Sky is a composition by Fraser Trainer with a libretto from Hazel Gould, which includes a large orchestral ensemble with steel pans and Indian classical musicians, a massed primary school choir and the LSMS show choir who, alongside members of the Philharmonia Orchestra, perform an epic oratorio reimagining the ancient Leicestershire folk legend, The Griffin of Griffydam. The music narrates the tale of a griffin, a fabulous creature with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion who terrorised the villagers of Griffydam.
Thank you to Mrs Edwards and Mrs Hollis for supporting the pupils on the day and to Mr Kirkland for helping to prepare for the big day.
Well done to the pupils from years one and two who took part in the growth mindset event organised by St Cuthbert’s Great Glen Primary School. They enjoyed the various activities planned and will be sharing their learning in class next week. Thank you to Mrs Short for supporting the pupils.
