Dear Parents/Caregivers,

We are excitedly preparing for our Year 1 Concert on Monday the 1st of May and have chosen some popular songs to sing with some of our own special words in the lyrics.
Can you please help your child practice their Class Song and our Year 1 Song ‘Happy’ at home?

Your child will bring home the words for their class song, or you can find them in the Song Booklet on Wikispace.

Please use the link on Wikispace for your class to practice the shorter version of their song. They will have many Music lessons and class practices to help learn their songs as well. We thank you for helping them practice at home too.
Your child’s costume will need to be provided before the Concert.
