Sandringham's Got Talent - The Results!

posted 15 Jul 2020, 14:23 by Louise Sutton   [ updated 15 Jul 2020, 14:23 by Chris Metcalfe ]

Wow! What a lovely afternoon we've had listening to and watching lots of fabulous entries to our Sandringham's Got Virtual Talent! Firstly we would like to say a HUGE thankyou and a MASSIVE well done to everyone that sent us in their entries. They were all FABULOUS and made it a very difficult job judging. We split the entries into three groups: KS1, LKS2 and UKS2 and oh my goodness Year 3 and 4 you absolutely rock!!! You blew our socks off and it is clear that this is where the greatest talent lies at Sandringham and there is still some years to develop the amazing skills you already have the roots of, especially those with hidden talents that we didn't even know about.

So the moment you have all been waiting for:

KS1 winner: Sophia 
Runners up (in no particular order) Olivia, Taylor, Jassimrit

LKS2 winner:  Jonatan 
Runners up (in no particular order): Olivia, Imogen, Evie, Annabelle

UKS2 Winner: Callum
Runners Up (in no particular order): Cameron, Oliver, Jack

Your certificates will be emailed to you and trophy for the winners and medals for the runners up will be received, when we look forward to congratulating you properly in September. 

We were also really impressed with some other entries, so look out for a postcard in the post!

We would like to say a huge well done and thank you to everyone that entered and look forward to making the contest bigger and better next year!

Have a fabulous summer

Lots of Love 

Mrs Sutton and Miss Galloway.

Sandringham's Got Talent

I've been smiling from ear to ear all day today, as more and more entries have come through for our Sandringham's Got Talent. I've even had entries from some children who sit really quiet in our performing arts lessons!! It's been lovely to see the confidence...maybe we should do more things virtually, as its been so lovely to find some hidden talents, that I didn't know many of you had! I am already excited about being able to teach you again, and see how much you've grown, and developed and really looking forward to helping you ooze in confidence, once we can start our performing arts lessons again.


So if you haven't already it's not too late to send your entry in - I've had singing, dancing, instrumental playing and even some music skills related 'work' - keep sending them in, you have until 12pm on Wednesday, then look out on the blog for the winners, who will get certificates and a prize!

Dance and Music Festival

posted 9 Jul 2020, 05:51 by Louise Sutton   [ updated 9 Jul 2020, 05:51 by Chris Metcalfe ]

Last week I posted about Sandringham's Got Talent - virtual talent show and have asked you to send in your entries by video. Well today I have received a flyer about the trust holding a virtual arts festival wanting to celebrate the talent we have not just at Sandringham but also across the trust so my challenge to you is how many entries can we submit as a school? I've already a few from Y6, some from Y2 and a couple from Y4 so I'm really excited just to see how much hidden talent we really have at Sandringham! Remember to email your entries to or share then with the Trust@ExceedLP

Talent Show!

Hello everyone,

I'm sorry things have been a bit quiet here, Miss Galloway and myself have been really busy with the Y6 children but we have still been setting your activities for you to do. Today we did some virtual singing, and it was great! All three Y6 bubbles connected in virtually and enjoyed singing together, so it got me thinking about your performing arts task over the next two weeks. It was so great just to sing, to Mr Campbell playing his guitar so we wondered whether we should have a talent show? Over the next two weeks we challenge you to think about what your act would be for Sandringham's Got Talent. 

Practise it, video it and then send it in to 

We will then judge your acts and hopefully we will have a KS1 winner, LKS2 winner, and an UKS2 winner! 

The closing date for your entry will be Wednesday 15th July at 12 noon.

Have fun, we can't wait to see what you come up with!

Mrs Sutton & Miss Galloway.

SIng Out Challenge

posted 18 Jun 2020, 12:12 by Louise Sutton   [ updated 18 Jun 2020, 12:15 by Chris Metcalfe ]

We should have been taking part in the Music Education Hub Singout event at The Dome yesterday and today. Alas that's obviously not to be so instead a special music challenge based around one of the songs has been set- 

To celebrate Sing Out this year, Core Artist Janet has created a special music challenge for you to try at home. Below you’ll find an introduction to the challenge from Janet, teaching you the lyrics to ‘Sing Out’. Core Artist Charlotte has also created some fantastic dance moves to go along with the song, which you can learn from the videos below! There are some resources to help you in the performing arts section of the website, including a lyric sheet, a pack of creative activities and the track for you to sing along with.

When you have learned the song and dance moves, we would like you to film yourself singing the ‘Sing, sing, sing out’ song and send in your film for us to make it part of a Sing Out Virtual Choir! You can find some helpful tips on how to create your film, and information on how to send it to us in the Sing Out Music Challenge resource at the top of this page. We can’t wait to see your films! - SIng out music challenge introduction with Janet - Learn the dance moves with Charlotte with music.

SHout Out

A huge shout out to Rose. She had a virtual violin lesson today, and it was so lovely to hear how much she has progressed since lock down and listen to her play. Don't forget virtual lessons are on offer for violin, clarinet, and recorder so if you're interested email me and we can get this set up! 

You will also find the clarinet, recorder and sing along's in the performing arts folder, so why not head over there and check it out!

Shout Out

A shout out to Callum, Imogen and Annabelle who all took part in the Young Voices singing at home mass choir event! They all look really proud holding their certificates! Did anyone else take part?

Callum has also done a great job keeping up with his performing arts home learning and is quite a pro at key signatures! It's really not easy but he will find it really useful for his violin playing, so a huge well done Callum! 

Play/ Sing Alongs

posted 5 Jun 2020, 04:26 by Louise Sutton   [ updated 5 Jun 2020, 04:27 by Chris Metcalfe ]

If you check the performing arts folder you will see we have added:

* clarinet play along - Star Wars
* recorder play along - Ode to Joy
* Sing along - Beauty & Beast

I have tried the sing along and its a good challenging one to get your teeth into! There is no melody line at all in the instrumental track, so have a go - don't give up, it's perfect for when no one is listening, then remember to show it off when you can do it! I have included the sheet music, as a great singing skill is to be able to sing from the sheet music - it also helps whilst learning to sing it with the instrumental track, as you can follow the piano part and try and work out where to come in or where you will get your note from!

Have fun!

Calling all our Singers!

posted 4 Jun 2020, 02:31 by Louise Sutton   [ updated 4 Jun 2020, 02:31 by Chris Metcalfe ]

So this morning I decided to have a music morning, what are you doing? Whilst making my recorder play along and recording my clarinet lessons I had this great idea that I would create some sing-alongs! When I took on my role at Sandringham as the music teacher, I realised I needed to start singing again, and despite achieving my grade 5 a few years ago - I suddenly realised how out of tune, and well to tell you the truth, how 'bad' I was!!!! Fortunately it's like riding a bike, and your ear and vocal chords soon adapt, although I'm not sure I'll get back to the standard I was - I used to also enjoy singing for the Doncaster Choral Society too. Anyway there are some really amazing singers at Sandringham and in this time away from our lessons and choir I needed to get you singing again so that you don't lose the muscles you've developed in your vocal chords. Have fun! Let me know what you think.

Keep an eye out you will find them on the performing arts page. I will provide the vocal track, the music and then an accompaniment. Please keep singing!
