Southwark Splash is an annual largescale music event for primary schools and a highlight of our musical year, up until last year it has always taken place at the Southbank, but of course recent events have prevented this from happening.
The Project tells the story of the Mayflower’s voyage from Rotherhithe to Massachusetts in the harsh winter of 1620, and looks at the story not just from the view point of the Pilgrims, but also the effect they had on the Native American Wampanoag people, and the consequences of colonialism. The word ‘Karibu’ has a double meaning in our show, not only does it reference the animal native to the North Americas, but also means ‘Welcome’ in Swahili.
After weeks of rehearsing and practicing all their dance moves (at home and school!), Year 4 successfully put on an amazing performance for their Splash Project!
Each and every pupil in Galaxy and Supernova Class showed just how resilient they can be throughout the whole process, and worked really hard to demonstrate their musical talent.
We can’t wait to watch the final video in the next coming weeks!
Well done Year 4!
