Both Year 5 classes at Michael Faraday School have been busy preparing for the Southwark Splash performance that takes place at the Royal Festival Hall on 24th June.
Southwark Splash is an annual celebration of music and performance talent in the borough. Over 700 children from 15 different schools are taking part. Michael Faraday School is incredibly proud to receive an invite once again.
The theme for the performance this year is The Love Architects. The performance will form part of the Southbank Centre’s overall Festival of Love that takes place over the next few months. The Southwark Splash contribution tells the story of how a group of children try and build a new city based on love and respect.
Michael’s Year 5 class are contributing to the choir as part of the performance. Weekly singing rehearsals have been taking place with the professional singers that are involved in the Southwark Splash project.
Pat’s Year 5 class have been selected to be part of the dance team for the performance. We have been working with Natasha Khamjani, a highly talented professional street dancer who has been helping the students with their routine.
Forming different dance interpretations of a bridge are all part of the Year 5 routine. Natasha has been working with the children on creating a human bridge, a trio bridge and a crucifix bridge.
Southwark Splash remains one of the annual highlights in the Michael Faraday calendar. The project is about so much more than simply the performance. It is an aspirational project with the children able to work with professional performers who have their roots in our South London community.
All family and friends of Year 5 pupils are of course invited to the grand performance at the Royal Festival Hall on 24th June. Ticket details have been sent home with all of the Year 5 students.
