CHILDREN visited a Wargrave care home to sing to the residents.

Twenty-four pupils in Oak class at Robert Piggott Junior School in School Hill performed carols and festive songs at the post-Christmas party at Elizabeth Court. When their CD player with backing music broke, the children had to sing a capella.

They performed Little Donkey, Away In A Manger and Silent Night as well as two songs from their nativity play, The Magical Christmas Jigsaw. Music co-ordinator and teacher Sarah Pontet said: “The children love getting out and about to perform and we do a lot of events like this.

“They all did brilliantly seeing as they had to perform a capella. They were all in tune and in time.” The children were rewarded with home-made cupcakes and a bag of sweets each before performing an encore version of We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

Louis Bastian, eight, said: “It was really nice to sing to the old people.”
