KS1 Deliver Accomplished Performances At Crackley Hall’s Performing Arts Afternoon
Crackley Hall’s KS1 Performing Arts Afternoon took place on Wednesday 27 February. An appreciative audience of parents, family and friends gathered excitedly in the school hall to enjoy this celebration of the talent of some of our youngest pupils.
The concert featured music, poetry and song, and was a testament to the range and talents of the young performers. Music Captain, Andrea Zanyi, and Performing Arts Captain, Isabella Osborne, compered and began by warmly welcoming everyone. Mini Brass Group opened the proceedings with a stirring rendition of Hot Cross Stomp and Theo Cowlishaw stayed on stage to play a super cornet solo of Old McDonald’s Echo. Then Isabella Osborne performed her set piece Why Am I Always The Bridesmaid. Junior 1 played Sleepless Night beautifully on recorder and were then word perfect as they recited the poem What Is Under.
Next up was Julia Kozhan and she delighted all with her piano solo Ode To Joy, followed by Arisha Shujaat who spoke slowly and clearly as she enunciated her poem Falling Star. Mrs Goode’s singing group delivered a fabulous and enthusiastic performance of The Work Song. Then Andrew Parizzi played Indian Song on piano and Carter Headland performed the poem Dragonfly.
The concert continued with Junior 2's amusing rendition of Skipping Steps, and Amelia Turvey carefully fingering out her piano solo Twinkle Twinkle. Junior 2’s Violin Ensemble had the audience yee-hawing along as they played Old Chuck Wagon. Then the very talented Isabella Olden played a beautiful piano solo Cruella de Vil. Junior 2H came on stage to recite Wet Playand the Junior 2 recorders played the lively St Lewis Blues.
Allegra Fox performed the thought provoking poem A Lion, she was followed by Andrea Zanyi singing Shy. Miss Pavett’s singing group cheekily brought the afternoon to a close with a wonderful performance of I Won’t Grow Up.
Our enormous thanks and congratulations go to all our accomplished performers who took to the stage in front of their proud parents, and of course to their teachers who have worked so hard to help them achieve so much.
