THE ROOF was raised at Gladstone Road Infants School as dozens of pupils sang their hearts out for National Sing Up Day.

Pupils at the school were joined by youngsters from Barrowcliff Infants School and Hunmanby Primary School for the event.

National Sing Up Day is organised by the Sing Up organisation and sees schools across the country take part in events designed to raise the profile of singing and give children a voice.

In Scarborough dozens of pupils from the three schools, aged between four and six, sang the alphabet song.

Sarah Stuart, music co-ordinator at Gladstone Road Infants School, helped to organise the event.

She said: “It was a really lovely occasion, and all the children loved it, they had a great time.

“I had gone to visit the children in the other schools before hand so they were familiar with the music.

“Each school sang the song themselves then we all joined in together to sing.

“It wasn’t like a concert it was more like a celebration of song and what the children had done with their singing.

“It was great to build the links between the schools in this way, and I think just having three schools all singing together was a really lovely event.
