Pre-prep Spring Concert 2022
Pre-prep pupils welcomed their families for our postponed Spring Concert this term. As always the children did a remarkable job of taking to the spotlight and performing with great courage and enthusiasm. Throughout the concert, pupils showcased a variety of instruments and skills that they had respectively been rehearsing in music lessons, 1:1 peripatetic sessions and lunchtime clubs.
To begin, Nursery donned their animal masks to perform 'Down in the Jungle' with accompanying actions. Our 'Cello babies' then took to the stage to perform ABC Zoo. Our Year 2 violinists then joined the Cello babies to perform a 'jig', before playing a pizzicato piece, without their bows. Joey S, Year 2, performed an eerie guitar piece called 'Spooky' before Reception sang to us about the Bare Necessities. Daniel L, Year 1, performed 'EGBG's on the guitar, followed by Year 2's rendition of All About You by McFly. Following his air guitar playing in the class song, Tombi W, Year 2, then performed Song 2 by Blur on the drums. Year 1 sang a beautiful African song of welcome, named 'Si Si Si' before the entire department stood up to give a final rendition of Mr Fizz, a song first written and created by Duke of Kent School Year 2 pupils in 2015 and which has become an institutional element of our department and the Spring Concert.
There were smiles a plenty for the duration of the show, from both the performers and their audience. Our sincerest thanks to Mr Rye and the Pre-prep staff for the time and attention given to prepare the pupils, and thank you to the parents for joining us, we hope you enjoyed it!
