KIDS from a Sheffield primary school made their voices heard as they celebrated winning a national singing prize.

Byron Wood Primary School in Burngreave was handed a silver award in the Sing Up Awards, which recognises children’s choral talents.

Pupils took part in a special assembly on National Sing Up Day, performing some of their favourite songs with teachers and staff.

Performing arts teacher Becky Stroud said music is used in lessons to focus pupils’ attention and learn facts such as times tables, while Byron Wood’s school choir boasts over 60 members.

She said: “The children and staff have worked so hard to achieve this award. All class teachers have been enthusiastic and encouraged the children to have a positive attitude towards singing.”

Pupils competed in a Strictly Come Singing event and will be going head-to-head in a Byron Wood’s Got Talent contest.

The school plans to hold many performances after its hall was refurbished.
