Holi was celebrated in Year 3/4.
We learnt about how Hindus celebrate this festival by throwing powder paint at their friends. We threw it onto paper though! We examined how they remember good triumphing over bad, the relevance of the bonfire and the celebration of Spring. Super active learning – well done Year 3/4!

The choir have been practising hard this week and are sounding splendid!
Your child has been given a letter with all the information about the performance on the 22nd, including what they should bring on the day – please remember that they can wear either an official Young Voices T-shirt or a plain white one, and that they will not be able to take backpacks or large bags into the Arena.
The children will need two separate packed meals. We will have our first picnic for lunch on the coach before we enter the venue. Please make sure that your child has a separate packed tea in a carrier bag – this will be the only thing they will take in to the Arena as we will be leaving all other bags on the coach. They should bring three drinks of juice or water – no glass bottles or cans, please. It is also important that they know which meal is which!
On Wednesday next week we will be having our last rehearsal before the big day. This will finish at 4:30 and we would like to invite parents and carers who would like to hear a ‘sneak preview’ of some of the songs we will be singing to join us at 4pm.
Remember to keep practising and learn those words! You can find the lyrics as well as lyric and dance videos to help with this in the Young Voices Children’s Music Room. If you can’t remember the password you can ask Miss Teale, Mrs Spain, Miss Chandler or another member of the choir to remind you!
