This morning, the Choir walked to Greenhive Care Home for the elderly where they performed, ‘Any Dream Will Do’, ‘I Wanna Be Like You,’ and ‘I Turn On The Tap’. They were then treated to a performance of ‘Daisy Bell’ by the residents. After that, the children worked with the residents to make sparkly hats and kites.
The Choir not only performed fantastically; they had a brilliant time with the residents and everybody enjoyed themselves very much! Well done, Choir!
We are delighted to announce that Choir is back! Rehearsals will take place on Mondays after school from 3.40pm until 4.30pm. Please complete the slip on the letter attached to this post and hand it in to the office by Friday.

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!
