The Water Cycle song lyrics

I think you would agree, our Water Cycle Song performance at the Christmas Concert is going to be simply magnificent.

However, before we can polish the actions and add a couple special bonus flourishes …

Battle of Trafalgar – Our Day on the Stage

In Cadogan Hall, we watched and sang along to a brilliant recount of the Battle of Trafalgar.  We traveled there by train and tube.  On arriving, we ate our lunch, unfortunately I did not manage to eat all of it.  It was deafening eating lunch, as there were hundreds of children chatting and singing, as not all the schools were eating.  The Year 4s traveled together with Miss Izibili.  Once we had all sat down, the marvelous conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra demonstrated what each instrument sounded like.  Some sounds can make you feel nauseous or queasy, other sounds can make you feel excited or scared.  I made up a story related to how each instrument sounded.

After that, we saw the performance and it was phenomenal!  I could have wished for nothing better from them.  It sounded beautiful when all the children and adults sang together.  At the beginning, it was sad.  When they celebrated Nelson’s birthday it was enjoyable.  The audience laughed when the dancers brought Lord Nelson a birthday cake through and danced around him.  We were told to dress as the crew of a ship and I dressed up in a striped navy blue and white top with denim jeans.  I go skiing every year, so I have a collection of medals and badges, which I pinned to my top.  I really enjoyed the educational visit to Cadogan Hall.
