Young singers from a West Norfolk school showcased their musical talents with a performance at London’s O2 arena as part of the world’s largest school choir.
Seventeen Year 5 pupils from Gaywood Primary School in King’s Lynn took part in Young Voices 2024, singing alongside some 8,000 other children at the iconic venue.
Supported by Teaching Assistants Mel Carter and Ilenia Freeman, the children performed a range of songs that they had been practising since September.
“The children have loved learning songs such as ‘Walking on the Moon’ by The Police, songs from Moana and Matilda, and ‘A Sky Full of Stars’ by Coldplay,” said Helen L’Estrange, Music Lead at Gaywood.
“They have learned some great dance moves to go with the songs as well.”
It was the first time the school had participated in Young Voices, which was launched in 1997 and broke its first Guinness World Record in 2001, when children from 159 schools sang in unison at the Manchester Evening News Arena.
