Whole school music challenge – ‘Any Dream Will Do’!

ARE YOU UP FOR A CHALLENGE?

We are setting you a singing challenge to complete over half term and including the first week back in school. We will be studying the Bible story ‘Joseph and the coat of many colours’ when returning to school. Your challenge is to watch and listen to the powerpoint below (made by Miss Younger) and learn a song from the musical of Joseph called ‘Any dream will do’. Once you have learnt the song, can you record yourself singing and together, as a whole school, we will collate the videos and make our own version of the song.

You can find the song and lyrics attached to the post, or on You Tube:

The moral of the story is forgiveness, one of our school’s Christian Values and therefore the story has an important part in our school’s ethos and well-being of the children.

Colossians 3:13,

“Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.”

 

Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat is a musical comedy with lyrics by Tim Rice and music by Andrew Lloyd Webber. The story is based on the “coat of many colours” story of Joseph from the Bible’s Book of Genesis and was produced in 1999.

 

Please see the PowerPoint below created by Miss Younger and complete the following tasks:

  • Learn the song
  • Record yourself singing
  • Please send any videos in to longmynd@holytrinitycepa.co.uk by 2nd March 2021, which then gives us time to edit and create the final video.

Poppy competition winners

Well done to parents, carers and children who took part in the poppy art home learning competition. We have had a huge contribution across the school and what we have received is to a fantastic standard. From water colour canvases, 3D poppy fields to giant poppies.

It was so hard to pick one winner from each class that we decided to pick two. Each winner will receive a certificate and a sweet treat.

Here are all the winner from nursery to KS2:

As a school we thank you for your continued support in all the home learning projects. Keep your eyes peeled for the next one…

Guess the Pet!

Here at Holy Trinity we love our pets! We thought you would like to meet them too!  But instead of just sharing our pet photographs, we thought we would make a game out of it for you. Your job is to match each pet to its owner staff member!

Each pet picture will have a letter of the alphabet to identify it. Each staff member who has shared a photo has their name listed at the bottom of all the photographs. Next to the staff member’s name is a number. This is the number of photographs that belong to them.

For example, I would show as Mrs Allcock (3). This means there are 3 photographs from me, not necessarily 3 pets. One photo might have more than one animal on it.

Here are the pet photos
