We Got Loud

After the disappointment of unkind weather last week, M10 and M11 were able to perform our fantastic rendition of “Let’s Get Loud” this afternoon for a large audience. The children did a wonderful job and certainly were the stars of the grand finale!

Thanks to all the parents for being so accommodating and sending in costumes for a second time. Here are some photos and the video of our performance. We hope you enjoying watching us Get Loud!

2015 End Of Year Concert

We are very proud to share with you this year’s performance of My Favourite Time of Year by The Florin St Band from the end of year concert. All the children did an amazing job and really rose to the challenge of performing on the night.  All the practising we had done throughout the term really shone through.  We would like to thank all the parents, caregivers and even grandparents who helped source and make all the amazing costumes the children wore. They definitely looked the part. So please enjoy this year’s performance. We hope you are as proud of your children as we certainly are!

I would like to thank Mrs Knipe for putting the video of our amazing performance on M11’s blog. I would also like to say a very big thankyou to everyone for their efforts in making our End of Year concert item so wonderful! Seasons Greetings!!

Germany and then way up high in Switzerland!

Mrs Morris started off in Germany with a quick visit with a beautiful bear (Germany makes wonderful teddy bears) and then off to Heidleberg Castle.

From Germany, Mrs Morris’ next stop was Switzerland, at Lucerne in the Swiss Alps. Lucerne is a beautiful place, with a huge lake (Lake Lucerne) that Mrs Morris went on a cruise on. Her last stop for this post is up the huge Mount Pilatus which is near Lucerne. You will see her photo showing the cables that the cable car takes you up, up, up the 2,148 metres to the summit. When you see Mr and Mrs Morris at the top all you can see in the background is blue sky and snowy mountain tops – even though it is nearly summer over there! Lastly there is a shot of some Swiss cows, who might just be responsible for helping to make that lovely Swiss chocolate – yum!

 

Around the UK

Mrs Morris has left Scotland now and is travelling around Wales, Ireland and then back to London before she goes off on her tour around Continental Europe.  In this post you will see her photos of Wales, including a great sign of a very, very long place name! Next Mrs Morris travelled into Ireland where you will see Trinity College and some beautiful handmade children’s books. She then went into the Irish countryside of Country Galway and County Kerry and up to the Ring of Kerry. Mrs Morris even visited the Blarney Stone at Blarney Castle. Legend says that if you kiss the Blarney Stone you will have the gift of the gab which means “the ability to deceive without offending.”

After this trip Mrs Morris was back to London with a trip up on the London Eye and a cruise on the River Thames!

Scotland Bound

This week Mrs Morris has traveled up from England to visit Scotland – home of bagpipes and haggis! In her photos this post, you will see Hadrian’s Wall which was built by the Romans around AD 122 to protect the Roman province of Britannia. Mrs Morris also spent some time in Edinburgh visiting the very famous Edinburgh castle and the well-known street nearby called the Royal Mile. Mrs Morris also pretended she was royalty visiting what used to be Queen Elizabeth II’s boat – the Royal Yacht Britannia. Finally you will also see Mrs Morris outside the cafe where J.K. Rowling started writing the Harry Potter series!

London!!

While Mrs Morris is on her big trip, she has asked me (Mrs Knipe) to share with you some of her photos from the various places she is visiting. Today’s photos come from London, England where Mrs Morris started her trip.
