St Ives Pupils Shine in Virtual Green Love Performance

ST IVES SCHOOL PUPILS SHINE IN VIRTUAL GREEN LOVE! PERFORMANCE

 

~ Pupils celebrate virtual premiere of Green Love! with thousands of their peers in schools from across United Learning ~

 

 ~ Group-wide music and performing arts project designed to develop pupils’ musical skills and raise awareness about climate change ~

 

 

Last Friday, pupils at St Ives School in Haslemere joined together virtually with thousands of their peers from across United Learning to see themselves in the online premiere of Green Love! Songs to save the world.

 

Green Love! is an ambitious music and performing arts project designed to develop pupils’ musical talents and encourage them to think more about the environment and how, together, we can protect it. The project culminated in the professional production of a unique thirty-minute film, featuring performances recorded in the 40 schools involved.

 

Last academic year, pupils at St Ives School immersed themselves in the world of music and dance, enjoying in-school rehearsals and virtual, group-wide Green Love! assemblies delivered by The Voices Foundation and Beat Goes On. Collectively, they learnt six original songs inspired by sustainability and composed by celebrated musicians Alexander L’Estrange and Joanna Forbes L’Estrange, as well as accompanying body percussion rhythms. Having mastered the lyrics and foot-tapping rhythms, pupils recorded their final in-school performance in the Summer Term.

 

To celebrate their hard work, pupils enjoyed an early premiere of Green Love! on Friday afternoon. This was followed by a ticketed online showing in the evening, where pupils’ friends and families were able to watch the special performance, held in support of Ibba Girls’ School in South Sudan. The film is available to watch on YouTube here:   https://youtu.be/EGXiLXxEgSg

 


GB Athlete Visits St Ives

Pupils enjoyed a truly inspiring visit from GB athlete Frederick Afrifa from Sports for Schools today. Frederick is a 400m sprinter, regularly competing on the world stage. He shared his athletic journey with us, starting with his first coach who told him to “keep moving forwards”, a mantra he still uses today. We loved meeting you Frederick Afrifa and will be following your progress to Paris 2024.

World Mental Health Day

It’s World Mental Health Day today.  At St Ives we understand the importance of mental health and wellbeing.  We have a recently appointed Wellbeing Champion in Mrs Cooper who we describe as our Worry Box and Friendship Bench in human form.  She is always available to talk to the children who may be worrying or struggling with anything.  We also cover wellbeing as part of the curriculum in PSHE where children are taught about mindfullness, yoga and learning to recognise when to press pause and slow things down.

Year 1 braved the torrential rain in Forest School on Friday and created wonderful sculptures of woodland animals using natural materials found on the forest floor to celebrate World Animal Day .  Great work Year 1!

Inter-house Cross Country Competition

Years 2-6 enjoyed a competitive afternoon of inter-house cross country yesterday.  The course is renounced for its killer hill and the recent rain has ensured our forest is suitably muddy to make the run a real challenge for everyone!  With house spirits high, the children gave it their all and the screaming of team support could be heard across the valley.  Excellent individual and team running from all year groups with the results as follows:

1st - Winchester (Blue)

2nd - Windsor (Red)

3rd - Canterbury (Yellow)

4th - Chichester (Green)

World Teachers Day

On World Teachers Day 2021, we want to thank our fantastic bunch of teachers for everything they do!  As so perfectly put by Malala Yousafzai - “Let us remember: one book, one pen, one child and one teacher can change the world.”
