On Monday years 5 and 6 attended a fantastic day at the Wallace Collection for a wonderful workshop on armour. The collection is one of the largest, finest and most important in the U.K. “The most exciting part was when we got to make our own piece of armour.”(Eve – yr6)
To our singers, dancers, actors, musicians…you made us laugh and cry (with laughter!) you made us proud, entertained and so very happy that we are part of what makes Sunrise so precious. Our endless thanks to Mr A and Titus who worked tirelessly with love and wit to take us to the South Pacific and a special thank you to Haringey Irish Centre for generously offering us their facilities. Let us leave you in 2013 with some pictures and keeping with the Maori theme – we wish you “Ki Ora” (there is no official word in Maori to mean Thank-you and they therefore bid each other to “Be well”…)
While the rain got the better of our original firework plan, it’s never too late to whizz, whosh and sparkle, especially where there are children (and dads!) around.
An energetic and fun-filled Friday was enjoyed by all in Bruce Castle Park. A big thank-you to parents and friends and of course, thank-you to the beautiful sunshine…
As Coniston Road became Lizard Street, the Primary children amazed us again with their adaptation of Krindlekrax. A very special thanks to Tara who came in from Hackney Shed to help realise it all…and as always, wonderful performances on piano, recorder,ukulele and of course the heartwarming voices of our beautiful children.
Well, it’s that time of year again – a favourite for the children -when we bring some Sunrise sounds to the underground! The halls of Westminster Tube Station were certainly cheered up on a chilly Friday evening by the spirited voices of all who turned out for our annual Carol singing event…and if you missed it, you can come along on the 14th!
Drawing to the end of another year, we were treated again to wonderful performances by the children and a truly brilliant production of ‘The Forest Child’,which was carefully knit together by Anna. A big thank-you to all the actors, singers and musicians who made the sun shine in our hearts…and of course to the bull frogs…
Congratulations to all – children and parents – who ran, jumped, balanced and tumbled for sports day and indeed World Sports Day on Monday 25th. With a ukulele opening ceremony to kick off events and some sunshine (we all know how rare that is these days!), it was nothing short of being perfect. Enjoy the pics…
A big thank-you to Fernando Rodriguez ( a Stoke Newington parent) who shared Sunrise’s fundraising story with his company XEROX. Impressed by the good work done by all at Sunrise, they have agreed to donate £1000 towards the mini bus fund.
