Lord Mayor’s Parade and Anglia Square – a love story. Over 85 of our kids and their families were involved in two big arts events this weekend.
On Saturday afternoon, despite clouds and rain, 80 of our kids turned up on Newmarket Road ready to play their full part in the wonderful Lord Mayor’s Celebration Weekend parade. Ocean-themed digital soundscapes were created live; an indefatigable samba band led from the front; dancers locked in well rehearsed formation, and ranks of puppeteers represented the beauty of our oceans and what could happen if we don’t look after them! The awesome tower costume presided over our parade chapter to gasps of awe, wonder and a little trepidation from the crowded pavements. Thanks to all involved for making it such a huge success. Coming second was the icing on the cake!
On Sunday evening, 7 children from Year 6 joined The Common Lot for their new show Anglia Square – A Love Story. The children performed their original song Anglia Square Despair – written with Duncan and Charlie – to members of the public as part of the ‘walk about performance spots’ that made up the middle section of the show, before joining the cast for the moving finale at the heart of Anglia Square itself as the sun set. We will be performing again on Thursday night. Please join us – you won’t be disappointed.
Thanks to all children, staff and families who have supported our school’s contributions to this weekend’s celebrations.
Here is a selection of images. More will be added as they come in!
