Only one world

The school choir recorded a video to one of our favourite songs “Only one world” as we have decided to adapt it as our official school song. We performed it on many different occasions to important visitors including our MP Angela Smith and John Rolfe from the British Council and they both loved it. The song has an important message about sharing, caring, looking after our world and working together. It features images from our school as well as from our partner schools in Finland and the Mfensi Methodist Primary school in Ghana.

Tankersley’s celebration of the world

On Thursday 13th July we held our whole school global showcase – Tankersley’s celebration of the world. It was a wonderful evening and one that our community will remember forever.

What fantastically talented pupils we have! Every class performed an act linked to the topic they learnt about in class and they were all brilliant. We had a Bollywood dance, a Lion King Dance, music, dancing and drama about The Great Fire of London and World War II, a piece about Mammoth Hunters, the Vikings and even a Mexican brass band. Parents and carers joined in too and the ukulele band with “electrifying Elvis” was another hit as was the duo of local folk musicians. Well done to all the individual performers too for being so brave and well prepared. The evening finished with the school choir singing the Streets of London and What do I know by Ed Sheeran, both songs with a really important message. We are incredibly proud of our community for coming together, celebrating our talents and achievements but also remembering our values. Well done everyone!

FANTASTIC BOLLYWOOD DANCING AT OUR GLOBAL CELEBRATION EVENT

Children in Reception class were very proud to present their Bollywood dance in front of family, friends and teachers, on the stage at Kirk Balk Academy. The costumes were amazing and the children danced with superb confidence and energy! Well done, everybody! The evening was an exciting celebration of our school’s global links and our outward looking school ethos. After dancing, Reception children really enjoyed watching other classes performances-a wonderful community event which will be remembered for years to come! 

Thank you to everybody for your support.

Tankersley Global Showcase

What an amazing night we had last night! The standard across the school was so high and everyone had a great time. In particular we would like to say a massive thank you to all the children in Class 2. You were simply brilliant! You worked so hard and had to put up with intense rehearsals but your final performance blew everyone away! We are so proud of you all. We would also like to say a big thank you to Beth for choreographing the dance and for Mrs Cooper for helping put together the songs. Bring on next year!
