Choir singing at The O2 - Young Voices, Wednesday 30th January

Brookmans Park choir were a part of history on Wednesday evening as they helped to break the world record for the largest massed school choir concert! In a packed arena of 20,000 people, our talented singers performed brilliantly across a wide range of genres, including swing, folk, pop and musicals. They were incredible ambassadors for the school and Miss Kropman could not have been prouder of them. Thank you also to Mrs Luck and Mrs Kropman, who spent the day with us.

Orchestra's Christmas Concert - Tuesday 11th December

Well done to the orchestra members who were superb in both of today's performances - firstly to the school, and later to their family and friends. They have worked incredibly hard this term both in Tuesday afternoon rehearsals and when practising at home and should be so proud of their achievements. Miss Kropman would love to hear from anyone who is interested in joining the orchestra next term - look what an amazing group you could be a part of!

Piano Assembly - Monday 10th December

Well done to the eleven brilliant pianists who performed in this morning's assembly! They each have a weekly lesson with Mrs Kropman (Miss Kropman's mum) and have been working hard this term, with some of them taking an exam last week (we eagerly await the results!). We were particularly proud of those children who have only been learning for three months, who were also brave enough to play in front of a large audience today.

This afternoon saw the very exciting premiere of the school orchestra! Playing to a packed hall, our talented orchestra members performed both 'Autumn Days' and 'Harvest Samba' with superb musicianship. Miss Kropman is exceptionally proud of this group of children, who have only been playing together for five weeks. Thank you to Mrs Price, our brilliant conductor, and to Ms Meik (Freddie's mum) for her excellent support for the wind section. We look forward to sharing more music with you next half term!

Harvest Festival, Monday 1st October

We welcomed Reverend Roger Taylor from Brookmans Park URC into assembly on Monday to lead our harvest festival. He spoke to us about feeling grateful and asked us what we were thankful for in our lives, which led to some really thoughtful responses. We ended our festival in style with our favourite harvest songs - 'Autumn Days' and 'Harvest Samba'!

Year 6 Sing Out Day at Lochinver House!

On Friday 21st September, Year 6 attended a singing festival at Lochinver House in Potters Bar, along with pupils from Lochinver, Stormont and Little Heath. We spent the morning rehearsing various warm up songs and teaching each other singing techniques, before learning some new collaborative pieces. In the afternoon, each school performed one song to each other, before family and friends had the opportunity to hear both these and our joint pieces in a spectacular concert. We performed 'Believe' by Lin Marsh absolutely brilliantly and Miss Kropman was welling up whilst conducting due to the effort, focus and beautiful sound being made! Thank you very much to Mrs Hobbs for filming us performing. Well done, Year 6 - Miss Kropman, Miss Melchionno and Mrs Oakley were very proud of you today!
