Huge congratulations to our fabulous fifteen Year 6 children who sang and danced their hearts out at the O2 Arena on Monday evening! Your commitment to after school rehearsals since September last year, plus learning a long list of songs and accompanying dance moves really paid off. All the hard work was worth it, and you certainly did our school, your parents and yourselves proud!
After an action packed day of travel and rehearsal, we joined approximately 7,800 other children from the South East of England as one mass choir to perform songs from all genres of music – ranging from a 90’s power ballad to a Kenyan pop song, as well as several medleys including cartoon theme tunes and pop classics through the decades.
Although we were seated high up in the arena, we had a fantastic view of the whole choir, the musicians and dancers plus all the special effects throughout the performance.
A massive thank you to all the families and friends who came to support us in the audience. We could see you waving, and it was brilliant to share our amazing experience with you!
I would also like to thank everyone here at school who commited their time and help to make this event possible for the children: Mrs Bravington, Mrs Payne and Mrs Lancaster! Also, thank you to Mrs Lindridge who stepped in at the last minute to accompany us on the day.
Please enjoy some photos from our big trip to London, plus two short videos which give a flavour of our night to remember at the O2. Please note you may have to play the videos through VLC media player (traffic cone icon) to watch them in the correct orientation.
Keep singing everyone!
Mrs Jones and all the YV Team
