Here Comes the Sun (with Beatles Night)

I had a go at writing some alternative lyrics to one of my favourite songs by the Beatles called, 'Here comes the sun' (very appropriate for a beautiful sunny day like today!). 

Have a listen here!

My Easter challenge for you is to pick one of your favourite songs and write some alternative lyrics to it.  There are loads of backing tracks available on YouTube.  Have fun!

Stay safe and keep singing!!  Best wishes, from Mrs Timms

Children in the choir from Years 4-6 sang in a service at St Mary’s on Sunday which was celebrating the church’s 150 year Anniversary.  The children all sang beautifully.  Thanks to Mrs Timms, Mrs Whitwam and Miss Hills for supporting the choir in rehearsals and at the event.
