Our main project in Year 5 for the remainder of the term is to prepare for our prestigious performance at the Southwark Splash festival. Our pupils have been invited to take part in the show, which will conclude with a performance on stage at the Royal Festival Hall. The theme for the Splash this year is Beyond the Stars. This fits in perfectly with our current Year 5 class topic of space exploration.
We have divided our young performers into two groups – singers and actors. Both sets have been working closely with our friends from Southwark Splash, with a series of workshops having been held at Michael Faraday. Our singers have been given a CD of the songs that we need to learn. The actors have been highly creative, designing and then making some space style costumes.
