PUPILS from a primary school were in good voice last week as they attempted to beat a world record.

Parsloes School took part in the 'Big Sing' a national event to get thousands of children all singing a song at the same time.

Before the performance, the teachers performed on stage dressed as the 70s band, The Village People,, and Girls Aloud.

Karen Camp, deputy head teacher, said: "All pupils and staff had worked so hard to make this event a great success."

The event at Parsloes was part of a day which the children spent learning about world record attempts past and present.

The successful attempt involved nearly 700,000 UK youngsters singing along to 'You Gotta Be by Des'Ree.'

The record attempt included 8,000 children all singing together at the O2 Arena in Greenwich.
