Creative Schools Symposium 2020 Choir Performance

By | Concert, Performance


The Creative Schools Symposium takes place every two years at Stratford Circus bringing arts organisatioins together with schools to see how they can work together to run creative projects for children in schools. Gallions were invited to give a performance during the break and the Y4s and a handful of Y5s from choir came down to perform.

The choir performed 3 songs including a wonderful rendition of Hallelujah with Choir lead Emma adding some cello to the children’s voices to heighten the experience for those watching.

Given the unusual performance setting and number of adults they were performing to the children did an exceptional job wowing the crowd. They gave a lovely performance that everyone really enjoyed. Great performance experience for the children.

Thank you Creative Schools Symposium and Stratford Circus for having Gallions perform.

Year 5 Musicianship concert

By | Concert, Performance


Inspired by listening to the BBC Ten Pieces and Hans Zimmers ‘Earth’ each class in Y5 formed their own orchestra and composed a piece to perform around the theme “space” a direct link to their classroom projects.

The children came together with their different instruments and under the expert guidance of Musicianship and Cello teacher Emma experimented with different sounds to create their pieces.

They performed to Y3 and Y4 in a one off afternoon concert and did an extremely professional job. Another great example of music linking to the curriculum, children playing their instruments more and creating their music.

Newham Show 2019

By | Performance

For the first time in the school’s history Gallions Primary School were invited to perform at the Newham Show. The two day event in Central Park East Ham saw thousands of locals from around Newham in attendance for the range of activities on offer. The Gallions Senior Choir opened the Children’s Big Top Stage on the Sunday with an Accapella performance. There was a big crowd for the children and the stage was out of this world with smoke machines and lighting that the children had never experienced. The Senior Choir delivered a performance fitting of the stage and were so excited after their performance having never experienced anything like that before. We will be aiming to ensure that the Gallions choir will be a permanent fixture at the event moving forward.


Beckton Globe Cultural Festival

By | Performance

On Wednesday 17th July the library held an event celebrating the cultural diversity of Beckton through a variety of arts, crafts and food. The junior choir were invited to perform and represent Gallions. As always the children took to the stage and delivered a professional performance to the crowd that had everyone smiling, laughing and cheering. Afterwards parents and children stayed to enjoy the food on offer and of course the bouncy castles!

It was another brilliant example of children going out into the community and representing the excellence that takes place at Gallions.
