To celebrate 60 years of the Eurovision Song Contest whilst also raising the profile of Modern Foreign Languages in the school, we hosted the TrimleyVision Song Contest. Each class learnt and recorded a song in a different European language which was chosen, at random, by the Class Teachers. On Monday, the children created and filmed the videos which accompanied the song that they have learnt.
On Tuesday afternoon, the children were invited in to the hall to watch the contest on the big screen. Parents were invited to come along, however, it was tight in the hall! Children weren't performing in the hall due to limited space, instead their videos were played on the screen and over the sound system in the hall. Selected Parents acted as judges for the 7 countries and the results were collected in true Eurovision style.
All of the videos (which only included children who had permission to be in videos!) are going to be uploaded to the website. We are also hoping to upload the tracks they have recorded too!
