Special Assembly


On Thursday 22nd October Class 5 participated in an event called sing up at All Saints church in Cockermouth. The event was run by Cockermouth Secondary school and primary schools from around the area participated in the event. There were around 200 children singing in the event. We had to learn various songs to sing with the other schools and we had to learn one song which we sang on our own. We chose the song 'Rather Be'. On the evening we sang beautifully and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Here are some photos of us enjoying our time at sing up.
