The Mayor of Darlington, Councillor Chris McEwan, wished to bring Darlington together in the run up to Christmas by encouraging as many people as possible to sing a socially distanced carol. Reid Street were invited to record our children singing ‘Oh Little Town of Bethlehem’. We then sent our recording off to Darlington Council where it will be edited and a final compilation will be put together. On Thursday 17 December 2020, the final video will be shared with the people of Darlington to bring everyone together in this very surreal and unprecedented year. Due to Covid restrictions we were unable to have the whole school singing together but we were able to use children from year 4 and 6 who demonstrated a passion for singing, to record the song whilst maintaining social distance. Please click here to listen to the recording on the schools website. There are also other Christmas songs that year groups have been performing to celebrate Christmas at Reid Street available to listen to on the website.


Merry Christmas
