Three Cheers for The Big Sing!

Years 1-6 had a fantastic time on a warm and sunny day at the Norfolk Showground yesterday for The Big Sing! We were there nice and early and were given the very front row space. There were more than 9,000 pupils and teachers there from lots of schools so we were lucky to be so close to the stage!

Enjoy the gallery for pictures and the unfolding story in captions…

And today we saw a picture of ourselves in the papers!

Practise for The Big Sing!

Getting excited about next Thursday’s Big Sing – now at the Norfolk Showground rather than at Carrow Road as originally announced. All our Years 1-6 pupils will be taking part and we hope you’ve all been practising at home as well as with Mrs Greene! We will be leaving school at 9.45am and travelling by coach to the venue. Children should wear their school uniform, please. We will return to school at approximately 1.15pm; packed lunches will be provided for the children. They may bring a small snack with them if they wish. parents – if you purchased spectator tickets they will still be valid for
the Showground. We’ve been advised that tickets are now sold out.

Practise for The Big Sing!


We hope everyone’s Easter holiday has started well, even though the weather today has not been as lovely as we might have hoped! But for pupils in Years 1-6, perhaps a rainy day could be a good time to practise the ten songs we are learning for  The Big Sing at Carrow Road on 3rd May?  You can access the backing tracks, lyrics and videos here – scroll down to resources and login with the password ‘singup’.

There is information about how you can get tickets for the event on the website, too.

Have fun!

The Big Sing!

We are very excited that all our children from Years 1-6 are taking part in  The Big Sing at Carrow Road on 3rd May – a fantastic opportunity to sing in Norwich City Football Stadium with lots of other schools. There will be 9,000 children singing and we are learning ten songs – it’s going to be amazing! Parents – please encourage your child to practise the songs over Easter. They have all been given a set of lyrics and you can also access the backing tracks, lyrics and videos here – scroll down to resources and login with the password ‘singup’.
