Christmas 2017

This year two shows were performed with the whole school involved. Over a week all pupils performed in their own concerts to full houses of parents, friends and relatives.

Tuesday 12th and Wednesday 13th afternoon performances.

All the children in Key Stage 1 performed a musical ‘The Christmas Dragon’ with dancing and singing and the youngest ones accompanying the songs with different percussion. As the dragon doesn’t know what Christmas is all about it sat to watch the reception classes appear and depict the first Christmas as a nativity of songs telling the story.

Evening Concerts at Roselands – KS2 – Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th December

The first part of each evening concert saw all the school’s musical ensembles, groups, instrumentalists and orchestra playing festive pieces:
Flutes, pianists, violinists, cellists, oboe players, guitarists, brass.

All KS2 Children Presented a Musical – Captain Noah and his Floating Zoo

The whole school worked together with staff sharing responsibilities for music, dancing, acting, making costumes and scenery. They were fully supported by a very helpful ‘Friends of Roselands’ (FORS) who checked programmes at the door and set up refreshments for the interval.

Designs of scenery and costumes, led by Classroom assistant Stacey Wyman enhanced the production where talented pupils acted, sung and danced. They were accompanied by music teacher Dr Liz McCullough on piano, and the school’s drum teacher Stuart Pringle on the drum kit.

Headteacher Jane Carson said “It was exciting to work with the children and see them flourish with confidence, respecting and valuing each others capabilities and talents. The teamwork amongst staff and pupils is a great strength of our school and particularly evident in such productions.’
