Clavering Primary School Choir
Well done to the Clavering Primary School Choir! The children represented the school extremely well on Saturday 6th December during the Spirit of Christmas event at St Mary’s church in Saffron Walden. A number of schools in the area, primary and secondary, joined the Saffron Walden Choral Society and put on a concert for Christmas. The singing was beautiful and added a special touch to the festive season. Thank you to Mrs Ford and the children for all their hard work in preparing for this event and Mrs Honour for accompanying them at the church.
A special well done to Beth Parker who came joint first in the junior section of the Saffron Walden Christmas Carol Competition. This is an outstanding achievement.
School Choir Sing To The Local Community
On the afternoon of Tuesday 9th December, the school choir joined the Clavering Over 60’s Club at the village hall for their Christmas Carol Service. Once they had performed two songs from the stage, ‘Walking in the Air’ and ‘Rockin’ around the Christmas tree’, the children participated in the communal singing of traditional carols.
As well as enjoying the singing, the members of the club were touched to be given some of the ceramic poppies made by the children at school to commemorate the centenary of WW1 and were told by the chair of the British legion, that one would be used as a symbol of remembrance at future village services.
As part of the composition element of the Music curriculum, children in years 4-6 took part in a Christmas carol competition during their class music lessons with Mrs Whykes. Congratulations to the winning groups.
