Class: Violet 2, year 6
Experience: I have no formal training, it is all natural!
Appearances to date: The plays I have taken part in at Bankside are; The Blue Base Christmas Production (2012) , Dick Whittington (2013) , The Pied Piper Of Hamelin (2014) and now Carry On Choir (The Aliens) (2015).
I want to take the time to talk to you about the world of music at Bankside Primary School…
IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve been at Bankside for seven years (if you include Red Base). IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve participated in a total of four productions/plays, In all of them I have been lead roles especially in Blue Base (Year 4) I was Mary in the Christmas play. In the Blue Base end of year play of Dick Whittington I was Mrs Ashlington, a posh and VERY, VERY rich child. In Year 5 I was The Mayor of Hamelin (coughs theatrically) Eh-hem the role was perfect for me and I really enjoyed being bossy! And now in Year 6, my last year in Bankside, I am going to be myself, Aleesha which is just perfect!
I am going to be leaving Bankside this year, so this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s play is quite important to me. I am putting my greatest effort into this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s production, and I am trying my absolute Bankside best – so far, so good. The Bankside choir have been practising really hard. So I hope this goes well for the choir, including me.Ã‚Â In this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s play I am singing the graceful but greedy MayorÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s solo, the holy but horrible and the excellent but evil solo Ã¢â‚¬ËœA Hundred Silver Pieces.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ I have had this solo in the Pied Piper of Hamelin and I now am doing this again in Ã¢â‚¬ËœCarry on Choir!Ã¢â‚¬â„¢
Lights, camera, action. LetÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s go!!!
