  • Choir Spring Concert

    Published 28/03/24

    Well done to our fabulous St Agatha’s School Choir who ended the term with their Spring Concert.

    The evening began with the Choir singing the action song Hand Jive, followed by a lilting Skye Boat Song. Then, the audience was entertained with some wonderful solo performances on piano, guitar, violin, trumpet, voice and cello. Well done to our talented soloists. The concert ended with everyone singing Rio Grande in two parts.

    The Choir is looking forward to a well deserved rest and will be back rehearsing at 8am on Tuesday 16th April in preparation for the highlight of their Choral Year, The Festival of Primary School Choirs at The Rose Theatre on Wednesday 19th June.

  • Oscar Romero Award Trust Mass

    Published 25/03/24

    St Agatha’s Catholic Primary School was invited to attend a very special mass at St George’s Cathedral in London. Our school has been recognised as demonstrating a commitment to Catholic Social Teaching and has therefore been awarded the participator level of The Oscar Romero Award.
    The Year 6 RE ambassadors represented the school as they proudly received the certificate presented to them by the Archbishop of Southwark. All the children, who attended the Mass, were very excited about meeting the Archbishop who delivered an excellent homily sharing St Oscar Romero’s values. They enjoyed visiting the Saint Oscar Romero shrine and finding out more about him.

    What an honour for St Agatha's to visit such an impressive cathedral.

  • Science in Year 6

    Published 18/03/24

    Year 6 have been investigating batteries this week and making them out of lemons, potatoes, salt water and soda solutions.  They discovered that the potato produced the highest voltage, but they think this was because the potatoes used were so much larger than the lemons.  They will definitely need to complete some further investigations to prove this theory. They were surprised that the 3 cells produced the same amount of voltage as an AA battery.

    " Thumbs up for more experiments - we learn so much more."

    During their class music lessons, Herons and Swans took part in a project to finish an operatic piece for The English National Opera. After sending the two finished pieces of work, Coral by Swans class and Emerald Green by Herons, Mrs Rodgers was delighted to receive the following email from the ENO:

    We are delighted to let you know that your Finish This… submission Coral by Swans Class has been chosen to be made into an animation. Our team listened to all the submissions and made a shortlist of our favourites and then Omar Shahryar, composer of Blue, Red, Yellow had the difficult job of making the final decision on which 15 pieces should be put forward to be animated.

    Omar provided the following feedback to share with your class:

    I like the inventiveness of the vocal composition and the way the voices were accompanied so carefully.

    Our team were also super impressed by your other submission - Emerald Green - and wanted to share the following feedback: We love the way you explored Christmas, and your piece had nice clear sections moving through different ideas.
