2023 Kicked off with an amazing Young Voices performance at the O2. Young Voices, which has been running for over 25 years, gave the children a once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in an arena-filling choir performing alongside famous artists, Heather Small and the Beat Box Collective.
Year 5 had been diligently practicing the songs over the previous months in preparation for the big day. The day itself was a real test of the children’s perseverance as they rehearsed through the afternoon listening to key messages, cues and practicing the songs and actions. Yet, the evening was the main event! With the audience entering the arena, the children’s energy took a necessary boost before the concert. They beamed through the songs and actions putting in all the effort that they could muster and demonstrating without doubt that they had the Wow Factor! Year 5 were impeccable, thoroughly enjoying the entire day and the opportunity to flourish in such a memorable event.
Last term, all of our Y5 pupils were trained to be Peer Mediators. During the training they talked about how actions can be very different from the emotions people are feeling inside. They learnt that listening is very important and choice of words and reframing is also key. Role plays were used to practise mediation situations to ensure they felt confident when carrying out mediations with their peers in the playground. They are now all fully qualified and spend one lunch time every two weeks on duty, helping children in Y3-5 resolve their disagreements.
