CHILDREN of Kennet Valley Primary School can officially say they have played Wembley Arena.

The attended the Voice in a Million concert on Wednesday, March 6.

Voice in a Millio raises awareness of the difficulty of children in care and the importance of adoption and fostering.

Now celebrating its tenth year, Voice in a Million presents an opportunity of a lifetime for school children from all backgrounds throughout the UK to come together, united in song and perform in front of their own family and friends and indeed members of the general public.

VIAM fully endorses, not just the psychological benefits to children who are actively encouraged to participate in music-based activities especially singing, but also the health benefits and the intrinsic feeling of belonging that a choir can bring to a child.

Class teacher Sarah-Jane Chalker said, “The children were so excited when I told them they would be singing with 5,000 other young performers.

"The look on their faces when we pulled up outside the arena surrounded by crowds of children from across the country was amazing”.

After rehearsing the children sang their favourite hits including; Believer by Imagine Dragons and A Million Dreams from The Greatest Showman. The staff team were even able to enjoy a Spice Girls Medley performed by the VIAM choir. Each child left the arena with a huge smile on their face and felt incredibly proud of their efforts.

Miss Chalker continued “This was a great opportunity for our children to see live music at its best but also to be part of a choir raising the profile of a good cause. We are a very small school so it was great to represent our part of the country alongside other talented children”.
