After the fantastic performance of Cinderella on Monday, the children in Year 3/1 talked about what they noticed happened to the music throughout the show. They also shared how the change in music made them feel. Did you notice any changes in the music to show the emotions of the characters?

Finally, a reminder that Sign2sing will be taking place on Wednesday 7th February when we will be showing our fantastic signing skills to the other Stoke Six schools as we sing/sign Friends Forever. (See the link below if you want to do some extra rehearsing or read about why being involved is important).
