Nearly 200 Hatfield pupils showcased their musical talents in front of hundreds of people.

On Thursday, June 30, 180 children in Years 1, 2 and 3 from Hatfield Community Free School took part in a ‘Music Extravaganza’ at the University of Hertfordshire.

Held at the Weston Auditorium, 460 friends, family and special guests were invited to see the children showcase their musical abilities.

Children in Year 3 performed some traditional pieces on the djembe drums and violins, Year 2 played some well-known classics on the recorders, and Year 1 added some percussion instruments to their favourite songs.

The whole school also performed a variety of songs, tongue twisters, and songs from countries around the world.

A group of the Year 3 children who have been working after school with Nick Green Street Dance and Musical Theatre demonstrated their acting and dance skills by performing ‘Revolting Children’ from Matilda the Musical.

Vice principal Aimee De La Salle explained that events such as this were all part of the Briars Lane school’s vision ‘For a Better Future’.
