These Ramsgate nursery children have recorded a song

Nursery children are singing their way to a special performance on a magic carpet ride inspired by Disney’s Aladdin.

The three and four year olds at Newington Community Primary School in Ramsgate have recorded a song called We’re On A Carpet by music teacher and musician Warwick Eldred.

It will be played in the school’s theatre during a performance by the whole school to celebrate the end of the term’s theme which has been based around Aladdin called A Whole New World Experience.

Other year groups will present what they have been working on in the special performance for friends and family.

Mr Eldred said: “The nursery children have enjoyed learning the song and sang it really well, so we decided to record it. We are proud of their efforts and decided to play it to the whole school as part of the end of term show.”

As part of the term theme more than 600 pupils have been to London’s West End to see the musical version of Aladdin at the Prince Edward Theatre. They have also enjoyed a special activities event called A Whole New World Experience that helped them recognise where in the world different countries are.

Each class became another country and the children experienced food, dancing, music, flags and natural landmarks. They have already held a tasty cuisine day where they tasted foods from Morocco.
