Tuneful youngsters from 28 primary schools took part in a music festival.
The annual borough-wide event involved four host schools encouraging pupils to show off their formidable talents.
Children worked collaboratively to perform three songs before choirs from the individual schools performed solo.
James Singh, events manager at Dagenham’s William Bellamy, which hosted six other schools on Thursday, said the event was a great success.
“It was all about having fun and encouraging the kids to enjoy themselves,” he explained.
