KS2 Choir and Orchestra performance at the Grainger Market

On Tuesday 14th December, our fabulous KS2 Choir and Orchestra performed in the Grainger Market in Newcastle city centre. We performed a twenty minute set twice, with a short break in between. Our KS2 Choir is made up of children from Year 5 and Year 6, and our KS2 Orchestra is made up of children in Years 4, 5 and 6. In our orchestra we have both ukulele and glockenspiel players and are led by Mrs Garforth, Miss McDonnell and Mr Moore.
All children showed fabulous behaviour and maturity travelling through Newcastle on the metro.
We also got to meet Santa and Mrs Claus in their grotto!
Thank you also to all the parents who came and supported us. It has been magical to perform in public again!
