Young Voices 2016

by school on February 10, 2016

On Tuesday 26th January members of Year 5 and 6, including Kolo (Year 6’s class bear), went to the O2 to sing as part of the world’s largest school choir. They had been rehearsing with Mrs Gardner for months and couldn’t wait for the actual performance.

Everyone was excited as they clambered aboard the coach and we soon headed on our way to London. However within minutes we were heading back to school again as we had forgotten our all important school banner! Second time lucky and we made it all the way to the O2. We ate our lunches as soon as we arrived and then it was time to enter the arena.

We had a run through of the performance with the conductor and joined all of the other school choirs to sing the songs and perform our dance routines. In total there were 7490 children performing – wow!

When we had been through every song and learned our parts for the split songs, we had our dinner. People even commented on how polite our school was when we asked for our water bottles to be filled up! At 6pm we re-entered the arena.

Finally the time had arrived for our big moment. The audience was beginning to take their seats and we enjoyed trying to spot our parent supporters. They made it easy for us when they put up their banner! Ryan’s dad and Becky were easiest to spot as they were doing lots of waving and even did some dancing too.

The atmosphere for the evening‘s performance was electrifying and we all sung our hearts out – particularly Ruby, Grace and Rohan! We had an amazing time singing and watching performances by Urban Strides and Tom Billington.

At the end of the evening, we wearily travelled back to school arriving at 11:30pm! What a brilliant day!
