“The journey of a thousand miles

……… begins with a single step.

Lao Tzu.

This is where our journey will take us.

This is where we will perform!

Thanks to Jonathon Boake for taking such a great picture

This is the Royal Albert Hall – one of the most amazing performance spaces in the whole world! You can find out about this incredible building by clicking here

the audience!

This is likely to be a once in a lifetime opportunity for year 5 that you will remember all of your life. We are very lucky that we are going to be taking part. It will be a lot of work. You are going to have to listen, to practise and to exercise great discipline. At times you will get tired and find it hard to keep going but that is the thing with great journeys – we HAVE to keep going if we want our journey to be worthwhile. And I bet that if you do give it your very best shot you will enjoy it so much that all the hard work will be worthwhile.

Soo is absolutely the best leader we could hope for to lead us on this journey. She is very experienced and extremely talented.

Soo has written about her visit to us today here Do you recognise the boys in her photograph?!

Luckily we will also have Mrs Aransiola by our side to guide us. We need to make sure we take advantage of her experiences and skills as a brilliant choral leader.

Finally, please leave me a comment telling me about some of the journeys your families have taken that have ended up with you here in the London Borough of Merton. I can’t wait to read your comments!

  3. This is a very big one in a life oppurtunity for only year5, I cannot understand why it is just year 5. Maybe we are the best at singing or dancing, while peforming in front of more than 300 people.

    I know whatever mistake we make in the peformance is very crucial to our school being popular.

    Come on!
    We don’t Give Up!


  4. The Royal Albert hall is a beautiful looking building where lots of famous people have already peformed. I cannot believe that only year 5 are going to the Royal Albert hall. I know that we can work hard and can represent the school in front of more than 2000 people. I also know that 5H and 5A can peform attractively and effectively towards the peformance. Remember that we are not only the school that are peforming, there are nineteen more schools plus us = twenty schools. This is an amazing oppurtunity to show what talent that St.Teresa’s have got(year 5)and I am estimating that we will do amazingly brilliant on stage. This is going to be really fun and serious but it is both 50% and 50%.

    I know we can do this!
    Come on!

    Jeffrey 5H
