Year 6 Summer Concert - Thank you!

 

Thank you to all the children who performed in the Year 6 Summer Concert yesterday.  You were ALL amazing and I was so proud of you.  You behaved perfectly and every performance was enjoyable and really well presented.  You have all shown yourselves to be very confident, talented performers and you made it a wonderful evening for us all.  I hope you were able to enjoy it also and will look back on your time at Bernards Heath Junior School with some very happy memories.

 

I wish you all the best in your new schools.

re: School Choir - end of term

 

Dear Parents/Carers,

 

This is to confirm that there will be no further choir rehearsals this term due to the summer concert which is to take place this week.  However, I hope your child will join me again for choir in the autumn term.  Children in all year groups who are not currently members of the choir are very welcome to join us.  Choir practice is held every Tuesday after school from 3.30pm until 4.15pm, where the focus is on learning a variety of songs and having fun.

 

I wish you all a very enjoyable summer holiday.

Dear Parent/Carer, 

 

SUMMER CONCERT – Wednesday 17th July 2019 at 7pm – 'Music from around the world' 

 

As the end of the school year approaches, all the children in year 6 are now ready for their summer concert. As you know from the letters that were sent out recently, the concert is to be held this Wednesday, 17th July commencing at 7pm. Children must arrive at school no later than 6.40pm for the performance and it is expected that all children will attend the concert unless there are extenuating and unavoidable circumstances. If your child is unable to attend the performance please could you let me know as soon as possible in order that the necessary amendments can be made to the programme. We have had an overwhelming response from children wanting to perform in this year's concert and we hope that the evening will be a wonderful experience for them (and for you)! 

 

The theme this year, 'Music from around the world'  provides the opportunity for a variety of different acts and all the children who need to wear clothes to suit their particular performance have either been allocated suitable clothing or have brought in suitable clothes from home already.  All other children should wear a brightly coloured T shirt with trousers or leggings and soft soled shoes for both the morning performance to the school, as well as to the evening performance.

 

We will issue up to two tickets per family for the concert, and we ask for a donation of £2.00 per ticket. If you haven't already done so, please get your tickets soon as the children would love to perform to a full house. I do hope you are able to join us as we celebrate the musical skills of children in year 6 in their final concert at Bernards Heath Junior School. I would like to stress that this concert is not suitable for babies, toddlers or pre-school children as it is not fair to ask them to sit still for such a length of time and equally it is not fair on the junior children to have their performances disrupted. I hope that you appreciate why we make this decision. 

 

We hope you will join us for what we are sure will be a very enjoyable evening.

Dear Parents/Carers,

St. Albans Cathedral Choir recruiting for boy choristers

 

St. Albans Cathedral Choir is currently looking to recruit new boy choristers from school who are in years 3, 4 and 5. They are looking for enthusiastic singers with a clear voice and with potential to develop that voice further.  Membership of the choir does require quite a commitment, especially at weekends and at Christmas and Easter. They also have a companion girls choir for girls of a similar age range. The reward for children is the enjoyment and self-esteem that singing to an acknowledged high level brings, being part of a small team of like-minded children and a free musical education to a professional standard.  The choristers form strong friendships, bond as a team and also have fun social events including singing on an international tour once every two years as well as on national TV and radio from time to time.

 

More information about this can be found at https://wwwstalbanscathedral.org/music/cathedralchoir/.

Any interested parents wishing to obtain more information should email the Cathedral music department secretary, Lizzie Smyth, at lizzie.smyth@stalbanscathedral.org or ring 01727 890245 (Mon-Fri, 9-5). Application is by vocal audition.

 

Year 6 Leavers Concert - Wednesday 18th July 2018 - 'BHJS Circus Wonderland'

This message is for ALL children in year 6.  I just wanted to write to say that you were all absolutely amazing in this year's summer concert.  I am so, so proud of each and every one of you.  You performed brilliantly, you were well behaved and made both the morning and evening performances fun and enjoyable to watch.  You were also professional in the way you coped with small hitches and were a pleasure to direct yesterday.  I know it was hard work, that we had few rehearsals, and  had to fit so much into the short time we had, but you all shone like the most beautiful stars and I am immensely proud of each and every one of you.  I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to watch this performance grow as we prepared over the last two months.  Thank you all.  I will miss you.  By the way, watch this space as lots of photos are on the way!

 

Mrs. Erlandsen

Dear Parents,

 

School Fair - Sunday 20th May 2018

 

Members of the school choir will be singing at the School Fair, outside the music room, weather permitting, on Sunday at 12.15 for approximately 15 minutes.  Please do come and listen to them perform - and if your child is a member of the choir, please encourage them to take part in what will be a very informal and enjoyable event.

 

We look forward to seeing you there.

 

Denise Erlandsen

Music Teacher

Dear Parents/Carers,

This is to let you all know that there will be NO CHOIR next Tuesday 27th March.  The children have all worked so hard this term and everyone performed brilliantly in both the Royal Albert Hall Gala and Alban Arena Music Festival.  Choir will return as usual after school on Tuesdays next term. May I take this opportunity to wish you all a very happy Easter.

Denise Erlandsen

Alban Arena March 19th 2018 - Well done everyone - a great performance!

THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL GALA CONCERT held on Sunday March 11th 2018 was a great success!  The children behaved impeccably and performed with enthusiasm throughout the evening.  Everyone worked so hard, rehearsing during break and lunchtimes, so a huge thank you to all the children who took part this year.  You were amazing!  Take a look below at the pictures taken a few minutes before the concert began.
