FROM THE EXECUTIVE HEADTEACHER

Welcome to Greenside School

GREENSIDE FILM FACTORY

Welcome to the Summer Term 2017 at Greenside!

We are delighted that we have been commissioned to become the Greenside Film Factory Music Company.

So we have Sound & Vision – our Summer of Music ahead culminating in a wonderful
Green-Day Festival of performance and fun in July.

In our STAR Days we will be learning about different historical periods, people from History and significant events – using our Experiential Learning Model we will be developing our curiosity about the impact of the past on the present as we explore Horrible History film texts. We will then end the year with a study of films that have amazing sound tracks or are our favourites – watch this space for more information!

Our Film Immersion Days will take us straight in to the world of Musicals as we explore this genre alongside the countdown to the final Tests and Assessments for our Reception, Y2 and Y6 students. We will be supporting, encouraging and challenging Y6 to achieve their very best in their end of Key Stage 2 Tests at the start of May and we will be doing everything possible to ensure they do the best possible!

We will also begin rehearsals for Alice in Green Wonderland; our summer performance full of amazing creatures, dreams and surreal moments. We will be singing and dancing our way to the stage as the world becomes curiouser and curiouser.

Wishing all our students, staff and families a magical 6 weeks of music ahead.
