This Week I’m Reading…

 

Point Blanc

Point Blanc by Anthony Horowitz

This book is the second in the Alex Rider series. It is about a fourteen-year-old spy. The first book in the series is called Stormbreaker. I think that these books are AMAZING!!!!! I want to read all of them. I highly recommend these books for ages 11+.

Another book I read this week was:

Doctor WHOOOOOOOOOOOO

This is a doctor who book where the doctor explains the history of the humans, but with his own things added in. This is a really funny book which I would recommend to all doctor who nerds like me.

 

That’s all for today, but next time more books will be discovered. But until then, RANDOM MEEEEEEMMMMMESS!!!

Sensational Soloist

On Tuesday evening, I sang a solo in the Lewisham Music Summer Gala at the Royal Festival Hall, in a song called ‘Sing’. There were five songs including that, ‘Sing and Swing’, ‘Listen to Us’, ‘My Town’ and ‘Oremi Je Ka Jo’. It was an amazing experience and I am still stunned by the memory of it. When our choir were performing, we did not do it just on our own, we sang it altogether, with twenty five other choirs. The amount of children was huge, about eight hundred! I was one of two who was picked to sing a solo on my own.

In the dressing room before hand, I was really nervous about it, as many people would be. Thankfully, I have a really good friend, who sprayed water on me to make me laugh!   Surprisingly, this worked.

During the performance, I had to stand at the edge of the stage, where there was another choir singing a completely different part. The rest of my choir were high on the balcony.

We sang the first song (‘Listen to Us’) and then I walked to the front and the music began. I counted the three and a bit bars before my part and then I began to sing. The conductor, Clare Caddick, had told me to really pronounce my ts, and during my part I remembered to do this, which made it sound a lot better. I stepped back and sang through the rest of the song at the front. Then I finished the song and bowed, before returning to the edge and singing through the last few songs.

For the penultimate song, the other soloist- John- sang his part brilliantly, before we launched into the final song. At the end everybody congratulated me and I met my parents. They were really proud of me, and I was really proud of myself!

This was a really amazing experience, and I enjoyed it so much. I would just like to thank Ms. Holder and Mr. Barrett for coordinating the whole thing, and teaching us the songs.
