Year 3 Christingle
The 12th day of our musical Christmas falls on Titus and Jemima’s last day at Walhampton – we couldn’t let them leave without a lighthearted look back at some of the things they’ve brought to the school. So here is the whole school singing ‘The 12 Days of Millsmas’!
Year 7 have been learning about jazz concepts this term and so decided to use those skills for their Christmas performance. With jazzy rhythms, awesome improvisation and lots of fun altogether, we have two performances of ‘Good King Wences-jazz’!
All choirs are now rehearsing each week within their year group bubbles. Hot off the success of their performance in Friday’s nativity blockbuster, the Year 8 Chapel Choir are showcasing the beautiful ‘Christmas Blessing’, by Lloyd Larson (do join in with ‘Silent Night’ at the end!). Year 6 (who were also featured in yesterday’s film, did you hear them?) sing the classic ‘O Holy Night’ and Year 7 have been learning a Spanish carol, ‘A La Nanita Nana’, which leads into the timeless ‘Coventry Carol’.
Year 6 class work this term has focused on singing techniques and listening to each other whilst holding melodies and harmonies. They chose this chilled out Christmas tune to show off their skills and everyone was given the chance to sing in a smaller group if they wanted. This is ‘That’s Christmas to me’ by Pentatonix, sung by all of Year 6, recorded safely and within their classes.
John Lennon is one of Miss Simmonds’ musical heroes, and who better to bring this wonderful song, ‘Happy Christmas (War is Over)’ to life than the brilliant Year 5 classes. In a year unlike no other, the lyrics are particularly poignant and the message clear – ‘A very Merry Christmas, and a Happy New Year. Let’s hope it’s a good one, without any fear’.
