Year 5 pupils take part in AJIS Sings
24 boys and girls from Year 5 and 6 were invited to attend the AJIS sing, held at The Queen’s School, Chester.
The day was fun packed with a variety of fun songs, including ‘Pop Idol’ by Alan Simmons. As well as the children having to add actions, dance and act, even the teachers were cajoled to perform the song in the style of Simon Cowell!!
The children learned songs in parts and rounds, and particularly enjoyed an African song ‘Amani Utupe’ which, amongst others, was given a full rendition in the minibus home!
The musical director for the day was the dynamic Shirley Court, who directs the Halle Children’s choir in Manchester. She trained and entertained the 200 children with great enthusiasm and gave them some very helpful performance and vocal tips.
