The year four pupils then performed in front of parents at Fairhaven.

Fairhaven headteacher Melodie Fearns said: “Some of the children did not really know much about opera and thought it was just women wailing away. But by the end of the day they were all singing songs and had big beaming smiles of the faces as they left.”
