Year 5/6 entered an exciting competition, in July, to create a traditional Islamic geometric design, which can be translated onto tiles in order to decorate the inside of the Mihrab in the new Mosque on Bull Lane. The mihrab is the niche at the front of the mosque that shows the direction towards Mecca, and is where the Imam stands to lead the prayer. It therefore acts as a focal point for worshippers at each of the five obligatory daily prayers.
The competition is open to schools in the York are and only 2 entries are allowed per school. We are pleased to announce the winners from Fishergate are Freddie H and Mia K. Entries will be judged by a panel of judges including local artists and dignitaries and members of the mosque around the end of January 2018.
The Fishergate Family Choir met for the last time this term on Monday. We have great fun learning new songs and singing lots of different rounds and harmonies. Here’s a little snippet!
Don’t forget that this Friday 30th June is non-uniform day to support the summer fair. Please bring in tombola prizes, filled jam jars (sweets, crafts, marbles whatever you like), bottles for the bottle stall, teddies and toys (NO books or second hand clothes other than uniform please).
URGENT NEED FOR PARENT HELPERS
Please find your class stall list outside the classrooms and sign up or tell Emma in the office and she will put your name down. Half an hour from each parent helps enormously. If you can stay to help at 5pm to help clear up please do…..
CAN YOU HELP?
We need to be able to play music for the gymnasts to do their display and we will also need a microphone, both with amplification. Can you help? Where can we borrow from?? Final plea for cake contributions on the day – thank-you – let’s make it a great summer fair xFriends of Fishergate
Thank you for all your hard work and support this year at choir. We have taken part in so many different activities this school year, including carol singing in the city centre and at Selby Abbey, singing at the Cgristmas fair and, of course, Young Voices. You have all been brilliant!
Next week (Wednesday 28th June) will be out last choir session before the summer holidays as there are so many different things happening in the last few weeks of term for both staff and pupils.
We hope to see lots of familiar faces back at choir next year. We have another very exciting year ahead of us!
