Earlier this week we took part, along with three other schools, in a music festival at the Rhodes Centre. We performed ten songs in various languages, as well as our own individual performance of three songs from New Zealand – all sung in the Maori language. What an uplifting and amazing performance it was.
A message from Miss Bryant & Mr Eaton: The children did a fantastic job of learning so many different words and tunes and actions in a short space of time. They threw themselves into it wholeheartedly and were a credit to themselves as well as brilliant ambassadors for Summercroft and we thank them for that. Thanks also to those who were able to come along and see the performance.
Our trip to Lincolnsfield was filled with fun and educational activities that the children thoroughly enjoyed, from listening to Stan, who was captured by Germans during the war, to hiding out in air raid shelters and visiting the 1940s house. Behaviour during the day was spectacular and really represented Summercroft well. Overnight the adults were also very impressed by the ease with which the children all managed to sleep, especially on the second night!
They threw themselves into the roleplay aspects of the trip, ensuring they stood whenever an adult entered the room, kept their elbows off the tables and ate their rationed food! Unfortunately, a few lost ID cards meant star-jump punishments and showed us all how easy we have it in this day and age! In summary, an experience that will be remembered.
