Choir

Singing is good for you emotionally, physically and socially. It can help to develop a child’s imagination and creativity and allows them to try new skills in a safe environment. Being part of a school choir creates a sense of togetherness, gives children a sense of belonging and helps them to make new friends. A place for sharing, laughter and fun. 


We are very grateful to Mr Horner and Miss Danks, who both give up their time each week to run choir practise and to accompany them to many musical events.

Our school Choir which meet once a week after school on a Thursday.  It is open to all children, of any ability, who are committed to giving up their time for learning songs and rehearsing for the many shows and concerts they attend. They regularly sing at the Bolsterstone Christmas Fayre, Christ Church Stocksbridge and at our Junior Carol Concert.
 

Each year they attend the Young Voices concert held at the Sheffield Arena. This is the biggest school choir event in the world with over 5000 children attending from all over the region. At the start of the school year, Young Voices share the words and music with all the schools taking part and they start learning the Lyrics and Choreography.

We felt very honoured to be asked if our Choir would take part in Fox Valley 1st birthday celebrations on the 16th June, performing with Bolsterstone Male Voice Choir.   A member of choir was asked to help cut the cake with Mr Dransfield and everyone from the choir got a piece of cake. Thank you to Miss Danks and Mrs Ashton for taking them. Thanks too Fox Valley for inviting us; it has been a pleasure helping you celebrate your 1st birthday.
