Kew’s Got Talent
Posted: 20th October 2023
What a way to end the term! To round off a busy few weeks, Year 5 hosted another triumphant year of Kew’s Got Talent.
This year, all of the acts were linked more closely to the performing arts curriculum, so they all did a music or dance act which was awesome to observe!
The junior house witnessed confidence and bravery from all the performers as they took to the stage and faced comments from the judges (Mrs Bond, Mrs Tabor and Mr Roy).
It was a sheer delight to see the effort, enthusiasm, and energy from all of the acts as they all delivered something special in their own way.
We had several dance acts this year which were brilliantly delivered- all of them being choreographed independently by the children. Some of these dance acts were even brave enough to sing along to the track too; well done!
It was lovely to see some soloists perform at this event, including piano, violin, drums, guitar, and even a cup song in there for something different. They all delivered their pieces with control and owned the stage from the beginning of their piece.
It was refreshing this year to see some own compositions included in the programme, and they all performed with confidence throughout.
As always, I was impressed by the dedication and commitment the children have shown in pulling this event together. They have spent weeks tirelessly rehearsing for this during music lessons, and also in their free time.
In terms of commitment: everyone is a winner!
However, the fate of the winners was down to the judges, and in the end, this was:
Solo act- Elizabeth
Duet act- Evie and Zosia
Group act- Pirates medley (Oskar, Toby, Sam, Aahil and Sebastian).
Overall winner- Marisa
A huge well done to everyone involved from Year 5, and of course the support from the Year 5 team: Miss Haldane, Miss Smith, Ms Hogan and Mr Lucas.
I can’t wait to see how the standard continues to increase for next year!
