Year 5 performed their end of year WOPPS concert today. They played brilliantly. It is amazing to see how much progress they have made over the year.
This week, Year 5 have been reading "A Midsummer Night's Dream" by William Shakespeare. They have written their own rap, based on one of the characters, in the style of modern 'Grime' artists such as Skepta and Stormzy. Once they had written their rap, they performed them for the class. They were amazing!
