Young Voices Concert at the O2

On Tuesday 27th January our pupils, staff and families joined over 7,500 children. 36 pupils from Bure Valley from yrs 3-6 attended with lots of family support. Ii was a fantastic experience; all children werevery well behaved, despite being overwhelmed and tired. They’d worked very hard to remember their lines. The 1:30 am arrival back at school was the biggest challenge especially coming into school the next morning! Many thanks to Mrs Small and the other staff for organising such a wonderful experience.

Millie Day & Poppy Spalding, Yr3: “At the O2 we felt very excited; it was really fun and we felt scared as well as excited. It was dark and warm in the arena and we all felt sad that it had to end. , We liked it when all the lights went out and everyone had little torches. The actual singing at the O2 was AMAZING! We loved it so much, we rated it 10/10! It was very different to what we expected.

Amelia Kamara, Yr6: “When we arrived at the O2 after a really long coach journey, we were amazed at the flashiness and enormity of the building. After lunch we sat in the arena to practice together for the first time as the Young Voices Choir, followed by the proper performance after our dinner. There are 100 words and phrases to describe the concert, but the one I’m choosing is: ‘If you weren’t there, you missed out big time! There were dancers and famous singers, plus a fantastic performance of the Mexican Wave! I would so go again!

Freddie Bower, Yr3: “I liked the O2 very much. It was hard to practise all the songs but it was easy to remember them when we got there. I would definitely love to go again!”
