Musical children at Linchfield Community Primary School, Deeping St James, have been recording their own album.

Entitled Now That’s What I Call Linchfield, it is an album of original songs, written and performed by the children and is on sale now.

At the start of the year, the children arranged themselves into 11 bands of between five and seven members. Each band started to write a song, based on an issue facing children in today’s world.

After writing the lyrics, the children composed the music and recorded their tracks in a professional recording studio.

Featured bands are: Midnight Kids; The Gobstoppers; Fabulous Five; Melody 6; Bully Beaters; A Splash Of Mischief; Gravity; The Power Girls; The Seven Stars; Little Rhythm; Hype.

A school spokeswoman said: “The children decided profits from sales of the album will be donated to the NSPCC and The Children’s Trust, which tackle some of the issues their songs relate to.

The album is on sale in Tesco (Deeping), The Boundary Restaurant, Lilli’s Tea Rooms and Cloud 9 and can be bought on iTunes or stream it online at Spotify, Deezer, Amazon music and other online streaming services by searching ‘Now That’s What I Call Linchfield’.
