Our Y4,Y5 and Y6 children transported their Junior school audience to France with their amazing assembly of poetry, dance, music and song on June 28.
Singers, musicians, painters, poets, dancers and actors showcased their talents in front of a captivated audience.
The assembly started with the French native speakers inviting all the Junior pupils from French speaking countries to come onto the stage.
Inspired by French actor Louis de Funes, 6B children then danced the famous Cossack dance from the ‘Le Grand Restaurant’ movie.
A movie montage then showed some pupils trying to imitate French singers who had inspired them.
Live music performances proved to be popular in the assembly with Maya Telang accompanying the ‘Singers of Love’ story and the band ‘Fusion’ with Samuel Srzich on piano, Laurence Garland on electric guitar and John Wikie on drums, playing their music.
The children worked incredibly hard to learn many famous French songs and I am incredibly proud of them.
The assembly finished with the song “Chante” that all Junior students love to sing.
The highlights of the show were:
