Our outstanding school
Appleton Roebuck Arts
Book week this week was a real success. Each class had special activities in their classes and opportunities to show off their book knowledge in our quiz!
Although I know the teachers pipped the pupil teams to the post, I think they had an unfair advantage of many years behind them, so will be announcing the house team that won on Friday!
For those children who will be taking part in Young Voices, it would be wonderful if you spend half term learning some of the songs. All of the lyrics and backing tracks can be found here:
It was a huge honour for our choir – only formed in September! – to be invited to perform at the BBC Radio York Children In Need Concert at the Riley Smith Hall in Tadcaster on Sunday 6 December.
Performing alongside Beth McCarthy from BBC 1’s The Voice, blues singer Tom Townsend and country singer Nancy Ann Lee, our children stole the show with some fantastic singing, including a brave solo by Felicity Mercer in Small Part of the World and a special guest appearance by Gabriella Commins for the beautiful Agnus Dei.
