At MBA we are proud of our achievements. All pupils try their best to , work hard, face challenges , develop resilience and to have a sense of pride in their achievements and in all that they do.
Our achievements are not limited to the classroom. The choir at MBA , after a lot of dedication and after school rehearsals has performed at the LG Arena with Young Voices . This was a fantastic opportunity and enjoyed by all that took part. What an achievement to perform at such an amazing venue !
City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra Project
We have some future actors in our midst at MBA. For the last 2 years we have worked with Shenley Academy and the CBSO to produce phenomenal performances including both music and drama. Last year the performance was inspired by Shakespeare , and children went home asking for more Shakespeare books - a real thirst for knowledge ! The hard work culminated in our year 4 children performing in front of an audience of hundreds at the Symphony Hall in Birmingham.
Young Enterprise Project
Last year we were fortunate enough to be able to take part in Young Enterprise. Year 6 really had to put their thinking caps on to create an impressive business plan - one that would even impress Alan Sugar ! After thought and deliberation the class decided upon making soaps and bath bombs . The results were truly amazing and would have fitted perfectly in The Body Shop or Lush ! The class not only made the bath products but also created a marketing campaign , making the most of opportunities to sell their product.Mrs Burford and her team had to present this idea to a panel of judges with numerous other schools taking part - we fought hard and came 2nd , winning £500 ! We were all so proud of the team and they had represented MBA very well - what an achievement !
OUR UKULELE PLAYERS...
Our famous ukulele players ! We pride ourselves in how well children at MBA learn to play the ukulele! Children practice regularly at home and a number of children have asked for their own ukuleles for Christmas and birthdays! We have performed at a number of venues - the Symphony Hall, the Adrian Bolt Hall and of course during assemblies for parents. We have even been 'head-hunted' by the Birmingham Music Servive to perform in front of numerous Birmingham Headteachers. We are proud of our musical achievements.
