On the 13th of December, at half past one, Byron Wood Primary School had their very own sing off, ‘Strictly Come Singing’. Mrs Stroud, their amazing performing arts teacher, had thought of this wonderful idea and it has now become a great tradition in Byron Wood.
All the classes above year 2 competed against each other and sang a Christmas song.
Mrs Gill (Mrs Christmas) and Mr Critoph (Santa Claus) were the co- hosts of this whole event. They entertained people with their terrible jokes and funny costumes whilst the classes got ready to perform. Sehrish Khan and Tamikka Reid were in charge of the score board. They had to count up how many points each class got, as well as perform on stage with their own class.
The audience luckily got a treat: nearly every class had dressed up for this special evening and wore their costumes as part of their performance.
The staff were also a part of this sing off. They sang a Winter Wonderland remix. The judges were amazed by everyone’s performance. Of course it wouldn’t have been possible without our four judges, so Byron Wood gives many thanks to: Mrs Ashton (Head Teacher), Mrs Proctor Blain (Deputy Head), Mr. Cassin (Learning Mentor), Mrs Sadique (Family Advocacy Worker), & Special Replacement Leo Jones (Pupil)
It was the best ‘Strictly come singing’ ever at Byron Wood, especially for Mrs Gill’s Class, Y5SG, who won the competition for their fantastic singing and fake snow which they somehow made look realistic.
