AHEAD of the Jubilee Weekend, Craneswater Choir has been setting the scene by singing the national anthem.

The year three to six pupils from Craneswater Junior School, in Southsea, learned the song just three days before their performance for The News.

Kerry McDonald, year four teacher and choir director, said: ‘The children had a great time learning the song and they put a lot of effort into it.

‘They’re all really excited about it being on the internet now and are telling everyone they know. They realise it’s a big deal and that people all over the world will be able to see it.’

The choir recently sang with The Drifters on stage at the Kings Theatre, in Southsea.
