Northallerton youngsters tune-in to their new school
2:56pm Monday 2nd December 2013 in News
PRIMARY school children will be tuned-in to life at their next school thanks to an innovative music project.
Hundreds of pupils from feeder primary schools in and around Northallerton took part in a singing day hosted by the Allertonshire School.
The year six youngsters spent the day learning and rehearsing four songs before staging an afternoon performance for friends and family.
And guests enjoyed a recital that included a mash-up of One Direction and the musical Grease.
Music teacher Mary David said: “The day was part of a programme of events staged to help younger students acclimatise to life at the big school.
“They really enjoyed themselves, working alongside our students to produce a public performance to be proud of.”
Education development officer Cathy Roberts added: “The Allertonshire students were great role models and there was a fantastic atmosphere.
“All the children have worked really hard and learnt the songs so quickly. It is quite an achievement to go from nothing to a performance is a single day.”
