On Friday 27th April, we hosted our annual music festival, ‘SING-IT’. Commenting on the event, Vocal Coach, Jane Richardson said “As soon as the choir started singing, it immediately became apparent that this is the best choir yet. The children were excellent – performing a variety of genres, with additional beat boxing and movement to enhance the pieces.”

As the rain poured down in Chaddesley Corbett on Wednesday 25th April, Year 4 were enjoying a tropical butterfly paradise in Stratford-Upon-Avon. The children were taught all about the butterfly life cycle and were able to get up close to a wide range of tropical butterflies from many different countries. The children were also treated to a mini-beasts talk, from leaf cutter ants and archer fish, to tarantulas. Those who were brave enough, had the opportunity to feel what it was like to be walked on by a giant millipede.
