Choir Performance at the 02

On Tuesday 6th February, the Edmund Waller School Choir headed to the 02 to perform as part of a 7000 strong children’s choir.  The children have been working very hard since September to learn 16 songs that lasted an hour!  They took part in a 3 hour long rehearsal in the afternoon, followed by the concert for an audience of over 10,000 people in the evening.  They sang absolutely brilliantly and they performed with great energy and enthusiasm!


Home Learning 19/01/18

Apologies for the confusion with last week’s home learning.  As I think this is a really exciting activity, I thought I’d reset it!

This week, you need to select your favourite or most interesting fairy tale and retell it.  How you retell it is up to you: a simple retelling, a retelling in a different setting or time, a written story, a poem, a comic strip…be as creative as possible.

I look forward to compiling all our retellings into a class book to share with future Year 4s.

The First Noel Lyrics

The First Noel, the Angels did say
Was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay
In fields where they lay keeping their sheep
On a cold winter’s night that was so deep.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

They looked up and saw a star
Shining in the East beyond them far
And to the earth it gave great light
And so it continued both day and night.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!

And by the light of that same star
Three Wise men came from country far
To seek for a King was their intent
And to follow the star wherever it went.

Noel, Noel, Noel, Noel
Born is the King of Israel!
