Hall filled with the sound of music

Pupils at Hightown Primary School put on the ‘Big Hightown Sing’ for parents and friends.

Dozens of Southampton children hit the high notes when they filled their school hall with the sound of music.

Nearly 90 pupils from Years 3, 4 and 5 of Hightown Primary School put on a ‘Big Sing’ event for their parents and family.

They sang songs from around the world and from different eras, including I can See Clearly Now, This Little Light of Mine and Did You Ever Spend a Holiday.

The school’s choir also struck a chord with their performances of Electricity from Billy Elliott, When I Grow Up from Matilda and Writings on the Wall by Sam Smith.

Deputy headteacher, Sian Cook, said: “We were thrilled to see so many parents come and support the children.

“There was an amazing atmosphere and the children’s talents shone for all to see. We are incredibly proud of all of them.”

The children not only showed off their vocal talent but also a new skill they had learned – sign language.

While singing the song Together – which was the official song for the Deaf Health Charity – the children used sign language to interpret their words.

Guests were also in for another treat with strawberries and cream on offer after the concert had finished.

The strawberries had been freshly picked from a farm by the school’s Year 5 children.

One parent said afterwards: “It was lovely to see all the children singing together and having fun – perfect end to the term.”

Hightown Primary School is based in Thornhill and is part of the Hinkler Academies Trust, along with Kanes Hill Primary School.
