Year 4 proudly represented Michael Faraday at the prestigious City of London Procession this week. This was a grand parade through the City, with primary and secondary school pupils from all over London coming together to put on a show for the financial district. The procession started at the famous Guildhall, and concluded at Paternoster Square, right next to St Paul’s Cathedral. The main theme for the occasion was to celebrate diversity and to encourage re-cycling.
We have been preparing for this grand event for some weeks now in Year 4. Working alongside Adriana, a Brazilian precisionist, the pupils have been designing and building their own steel drums, made out of re-cycled coffee tins. Year 4 also designed their own costumes for the procession, thinking how they could make a plain black T-shirt appear more lively and fit in with the celebratory nature of the event.
The response on the day from the City workers was fantastic! Everywhere we paraded we were met with loud cheers and applause as the financial district thanked the Michael Faraday pupils for livening up their day. We are proud to display some photographs from the wonderful City of London Procession in the picture gallery below.
