A few of our children took part in a wonderful opportunity to record The One Song please find attached the link to a small video of the day and two children's view on the experience.




What an amazing time~


To start the day off from when we arrived at Eastbrough School. We were welcomed with yummy biscuits and delicious juice. Minutes later we were introduced to students that we did not know but were to make friends with.


The reason that we came to Eastbrough School was we could record the One Song, make more new friends, meet new teachers and last but least have fun!


After We had recorded the One Song we celebrated by joining in lots of activities. All in all, we had a amazing time and would do it again.

We went to the one song event because we went to record the song and do some activities and of course make new friends. The schools that took part were: Southdale, Southparade, Holy Trinity and the school we went to Eastbrough. I enjoyed learning new actions for the song and the change places game.


The first thing we did was the change places game and then got on to the song. Afterwards we went to out first activities and then got back together for another part of the song. Then went to our final activities and then sang the whole song.


After that we met the writer of the One Song and sat whilst it was recorded. Finally it was time to go back to school. I hope we do something like this again in the future.
