RLT Music Festival
The sun was shining - definitely the weather for a music festival!
On Friday afternoon Class 3 joined other children from RLT schools for the third annual RLT music festival - this year held at Cottesmore School. The festival began with some folk music performed for all the schools on the main stage, before activities commenced.
The schools were split into two teams - red and blue. Red performed first on the main stage, each school performing two songs, whilst the blue team had a chance to join any of the activities on offer around the field. There were army vehicles to explore, an assault course, face painting, African Drumming, Ukuleles, Circus Skills, Penalty shoot out and dance workshops! The children were free to join any activity that caught their interest and it was a great opportunity to get to know children from other schools as well as learn some new skills.
Exton & Greetham were in the blue team and were in the second group of schools performing on the main stage. Miss Bevins had rehearsed the children well and they sang brilliantly, performing some fantastic dance moves in their second song!
The afternoon finished with a performance by the Cottesmore Military Wives choir who performed three of their songs for us.
A huge thank you to Cottesmore School for hosting, to all the workshop leaders for sharing their skills, to all the other schools for entertaining us with their songs and to all those involved in the organisation. It was a very hot afternoon, and we are particularly grateful to the parents association at Cottesmore School for providing all of the children with ice pops.
A good time was had by all!
