Twas' Brillig and the Mighty Ranelagh..
Although we could not invite you in to our school this year, we could not go another year without the children performing at the Poetry Recital. So here it is, for your delectation. Please click the links.
Once again parents, grandparents and carers were wowed with Ranelagh's poetry recital which wraps up the end of the Spring Term. Each Year group learns a famous poem off by heart with the intention that by the time they leave Ranelagh, each child has a large bank of memorable poems that they will be able to recite.
From the famous The Highway by Alfred Noyes to Lewis Carroll's the Jabberwocky, children perform a choral interpretation. This has been happening for the last 4 years and it is wonderful to see the older children mouth the familiar poems performed by Years 1, 2 and 3.
Nursery and Reception recited traditional nursery rhymes - with reception reciting Twinkle Twinkle Little Star in Ranelagh's Modern Language -Spanish.
One of the parents said that it demonstrates how much Ranelagh values the arts and that teachers work incredibly hard for the children to be as confident as they are.
