Stoneygate Carol Service

Well done to everyone in years 3 to 8 for doing so fantastically well in the Carol Service. Everyone worked so hard to learn all the music and performed at such a high standard. I was so proud of the energy, smiles, clarity, shaping, tuning, diction, clicks, orchestras, ensembles, descants … the list goes on and on!

The readings and the school captains’ welcome were also so well delivered and showed an understanding that went beyond the years of the readers.

Special thanks go to the staff of the school, who showed their full support throughout. In particular, Mr Murphy for preparing the readers, Mr Stocks for coordinating the event, Mr Hudson, Mr James, Mr Britcliffe, Miss Hardy and Mrs Thompson for their valued musical contribution to the service, and Mr Ashwin for his piano accompaniment and energy.

A huge thank you to everyone who made it possible and for all the support of the wonderful congregation.

Have a lovely Christmas!

Mrs Ashwin

Angelic Voices at Kibworth’s Angel Fayre

On Saturday 23 November, our Junior Choir (Year 3 and 4) made a special effort to come to St Wilfred’s Church in Kibworth and sing at the Angel Fayre. The energy and enthusiasm from all our singers was excellent throughout songs in different styles. We sang two autumnal songs, two American songs in parts, a quirky song about choosing the right shoes and finished with a preview of one of the songs that we will sing in our Carol Service. We were very happy to adopt Charlotte from Yr 7 and Caitlin from Yr 6 into our team and they both sang wonderful solos.

There was marvellous support from parents, siblings and friends at the fayre and there was a really buzzing atmosphere around. Our singers did very well to sing over a reasonable amount of chatter at the back of the church, but they maintained their focus and sang with the great attitude of ‘the show must go on’!

Huge thanks to all the Year 3 and 4 children who came and sang and their families for getting them there.
