Multi-Story Orchestra

Everyone at SMMS was very excited to welcome The Multi Story Orchestra to our school early May. The musicians presented a range of instruments and invited us to join in different songs. Year 5 & 6 have had sessions with members of the Orchestra!

The children thoroughly enjoyed the session, where they got to write a part of a song, and help compose the music. The Orchestra members were then able to put music to the song and the children were treated to listening to the Violin and Piano! The final performance will take place at 6pm on the 13th June at Bold Tendencies car park.

Crystal Palace Trip – Reception

Orange Class had a fabulous time at Crystal Palace Park. We went on a dinosaur hunt with our challenge sheets, we found them all and had fun describing them. 

On the way to have our lunch we saw a statue of a gorilla, he looked very big and strong, we could feel it and had great fun having a photo next to it. 

We also saw lots of wildlife in the park, we saw some sheep, birds, dogs and lots of ducks and geese.  Everyone had fun and wanted to go back again.
