THE children of Emneth Primary School became pop stars for the morning when Grange Farm Studio visited the school.

Pupils and staff have been working really hard on their Christmas performances and to showcase all their hard work the Friends of the School Association (FOSA) decided to compile a CD to help raise money for the school.

The CD features a number of songs from Key Stages 1 and 2, and the whole school joined together to record the traditional carols ‘Away in a Manger’ and ‘We Wish you a Merry Christmas’.

Lara Gourley from FOSA said: “The staff and children have put so much effort into their Christmas Performances that this was a perfect way for the children to see how much their hard work has paid off.

“The children were very excited to see that their school hall had been turned into a mini recording studio for the morning and thanks to Head Engineer Isi Clarke at Grange Farm Studio the whole rehearsal and recording process took less than two hours”

The children also had a competition to design the CD’s cover and it was Grange Farm Studios’ job to pick the competition winning design. Studio Manager Lucy Ryan said: “We had over 20 entries for the cover competition and it was so difficult to choose as they were all amazing designs - but the winner was Mathew Snowden from Class 7 who appropriately designed a singing snowman.

“Second choice was Holly Maryon and Jodie Shakespeare’s design which included Emneth church and school, followed by Claudia Edinburgh, who drew a fantastic Father Christmas. A big well done to all who took part.”

The CD was due for release yesterday (December 7) priced £5 and can be bought direct from Grange Farm Studio on 01945-430265.
