Music for Youth Prom

The massed choir at Music for Youth Proms

On 6th November 2018 we had the privilege of taking 20 of our KS2 children to perform in a massed choir with other Leicester(shire) primary and secondary schools at the Royal Albert Hall, as part of the Music for Youth Proms. The performance followed months of dedicated practise with Miss Birchall and specialist singing teachers from Leicestershire Music Service. The children were performing a piece called The Legend of the Sky which was written to celebrate Leicestershire Schools Music Service’s 70th anniversary. The epic oratorio re-imagined the ancient Leicestershire folk legend, The Griffin of Griffydam, and the music narrated the tale of a griffin, a fabulous creature with the head and wings of an eagle and the body of a lion, who terrorised the villagers of Griffydam. The Royal Albert Hall performance was the culmination of an 18-month-long creative project with Leicestershire Music Service, in which Blaby Stokes was one of four primary schools chosen to help to write the original lyrics, and the massed choir sang alongside Leicestershire musicians and Indian classical musicians. We are so proud of all our pupils who took part and wish to also thank parents for their support with this amazing event.

Check Out Our New School Library!

A message from the Governors:

Governors were pleased to be invited to the Grand Opening of the new school Library this morning. We came to the assembly beforehand where the children were encouraged to take part in a little competition, the winners to sit with Rupert the "reading dog" on their laps to read him a story. This was received with interest as Rupert came to visit this morning as well. The School Council then cut the ribbon to open the Library, which is absolutely fabulous, a lovely welcoming, warm space, with a woodland castle setting! It's full of all sorts of books and hopefully will encourage the children to read more. Governor Richard Holdridge sat on the "throne" in the castle and read the children a story. The classes came to visit one by one and it was lovely to see the looks on the children's faces as they came into the Library for the first time.

A big thank you to everyone concerned, the Library is something to be treasured.
