Sharks and Dolphins held a Bowburn’s got talent competition and Wow! Have we got some talented children here in Year 2!
The children who wanted to participate had practiced their talents over the past week and they took turns to entertain their audience. We had every sort of variety act from Judo, dancing and playing instruments to comedy and magic!
Well done to everyone who shared their special skills!
The streets around school echoed with the sound of music and laughter when Funky Style Brass came to entertain us!
Funky Style Brass are 9 very talented musicians who met at school in Toulouse, in the south of France. They are visiting Durham as part of Durham Brass Festival and are visiting schools in the area to entertain and enthuse a love of music.
The musicians explained what each instrument was before playing a variety of tunes from traditional French to rock!
We all had a fabulous time dancing in the sunshine!
