Fourlanesend C P School presents ‘Carmen’ (Autumn 2017)

When asking the children about opera at the beginning of the Autumn term, most explained that it was for posh people and that it was very difficult to sing because the notes were very high and that you needed to hold them for a very long time. In the weeks that followed, the children across KS1 and KS2 were inspirational in their approach to learning about the opera Carmen. Their enthusiasm never waivered when warming-up, practising the songs and drama scenes or when finding out about the characters – this gave us the idea to make a behind-the-scenes film to highlight the different areas of learning that came together to create our final piece.

We were very lucky to be able to perform at our local secondary school on a stage that was large enough to hold our 90 children (Y1 to Y6 inclusive). The children were a little overwhelmed by the scale of the hall and our first song ended up being a little speedy so we stopped and re-started – to their credit, they were extremely professional and the final performance was engaging, thought-provoking and emotional.

As a school, we would like to thank the Royal Opera House for giving us the opportunity to take part in this very rewarding project.

Our Summer term topic was: 'Was America discovered?'.
 Watch our video to see what we discovered.
The Spring Term finished with a survival day. Over the term we have investigated why it is that we live on Earth and not anywhere else. Class Tamar looked at the importance of water in geography and the states of matter in science. 
Watch our whole school survival day below.
Watch the 'Launch' of our Spring topic below.
Continuing our Autumn topic we spent the day being engineers like Isambard Kingdom Brunel. His legacy from Victorian times still affects our lives today. How strong can you build a bridge with just 5 pieces of paper, string and a bit of tape?
Our Autumn Term Topic was 'What did the Victorians do for us?'. We wanted to know what it was like to go to school in Victorian Times, so we looked in our school log book. Before half term we took part in a Victorian school day. Watch the video below.
