Year 4 African Activities

Year 4 have been learning lots about life in Africa. Newman College student teachers (who recently visited the Gambia along with several members of the Kitwell staff) have been working with our Year 4s on lots of exciting African activities. They been learning how to tie dye clothes, they’ve been role-playing the life of an African child, they’ve been making African music and they’ve also helped to raise money to support our link schools in the Gambia. Year 4’s fund raising activities involved selling cakes, running and scoring lots of goals. Makumbaya Lower Basic school needs funds to finish the construction of their library and Bijilo Nursery School needs support with the re-building of classroom roofs. Both of these schools are a little closer to achieving their goals because of the generosity of some of our Year 4 children.

‘Concert for Africa’ at Newman College

The Kitwell School Choir held their first ‘Concert for Africa’ at Newman College in July 2011. The money raised will go towards supporting our link schools – Bijilo Nursery School and Makumbaya Lower Basic School – in the Gambia. Our brass players also performed and we were also lucky enough to have ex-pupils sing for us.

Brass Assembly

May 22, 2011 1 comment

On May 5th, we were treated to an assembly led by Mr. Douglas – our Brass teacher. He intoduced several songs played by seven girls from Year 4 and 5. We had tenor horn and trombone players in Year 5 and cornet players in Year 4.  We heard many songs on the theme of the Royal wedding, including ‘Here Comes the Bride’ and the National Anthem. Well done, girls, the hard work and practise is really paying off!

‘E-A-S-T-E-R Easter’

‘E-A-S-T-E-R easter’ is a song we’ll remember for years to come. We’ll also remember just how good our recent Year 3 and Year 4 Easter Production actually was.
