We will, as our pupils are growing and learning with us, care for, support and safeguard them whilst striving to encourage them to be responsible citizens and do the same for each other and their wider community.
We will strive to ignite our pupils’ desire and enthusiasm to learn without limits.
We will aim to encourage our pupils and school community to develop academically and socially which will develop their desire to explore the wider world, skilled and equipped to find out even more.
This week has seen all Parkroyal staff focus on Music with our wonderfully talented pupils; each year group has been focussing on a particular subject and have used music to explore this subject in more depth. This culminated in a fantastic celebration music assembly on Thursday.
Reception made some wonderful instruments out of everyday items such as Smartie tubes, plastic tubs and even cardboard coin castanets! They then joined forces with their year 6 buddies to create a piece of music based on the Mayan culture, the year 6 topic for this term.
Year 1 learnt 3 songs from or about Victorian times. They sang these beautifully and then the whole school joined in to sing ‘This is me’ from The Greatest Showman.
Heidi and Louis arrived in a Tardis as Year 2 travelled in time from the 60’s to present day through song. From the Beatles, past the Bee Gees, Queen and MC Hammer, finally crashing into the present day with a rousing performance of Gangnam style!
Year 3 had taken an Egyptian inspired song and created an interpretative dance based upon the 10 steps of the mummification process. These were fantastically creative and very effective. They had the audience captivated!
Year 4 spectacularly sang and danced their way through a song about the Gods of Ancient Greece, choreographed by Miss Carruthers and using plates decorated with portraits of ancient Greek Myths and historic characters.
Year 5 finished the assembly with a lovely rendition of a song about the beach. Around 15 pupils showed off their Ukulele skills by accompanying the singers. These videos can be viewed on our Music page.
