The children who went to Young Voices shared their opinions of their visit to sing at Sheffield Arena.
“It was absolutely brilliant as you could just like sing with everyone with you and really enjoy it.”
“You can really show your talent in your singing and tell your friends how good it was to encourage them to join in next time.”
“It was brilliant because you could see how lots of other people enjoy themselves and everyone had a smile on their face because they were enjoying it.”
“It was really good because it was so bright and everyone looked amazing and I loved how we could do dancing with all the dancers who did a great show.”
“It was good and I liked when everyone was coming in and I felt much more confident. I really liked going and would recommend it.”
On Thursday 10th January, Year 6 visited Murton Park near York. Upon arrival, we were greeted by Mrs G, our ‘teacher’ for the day. As we were led into the classroom, we learned about evacuation, empathy and we even had a warming mug of hot chocolate and biscuits! When the majority of us were finished, a funny man called Mr H entered the room. Soon after, we experienced an air raid and took cover in two Anderson shelters and one Bunker shelter – which would be used by the public in those times. When we re-entered the room, we were ready to do a variety of fun activities, such as assembling a Morrison shelter, baking Wartime Crunch, diffusing fire-bombs and blast taping the windows. After a quick lunch and a play on the playground, an unpredicted air raid sounded. When the coast was clear, we continued our undertakings. We thanked Mrs G and Mr H as the event drew to a close. Overall, it was an amazing experience we will never forget.
