Schoolkids record song for Thomas the Tank Engine movie

Hinckley's Westfield Infants School

The pupils of Westfield Infant School in Leicestershire have been crowned winners of the Thomas & Friends national singing competition – winning the chance to record a song for the new Thomas movie!

Oscar winner Eddie Redmayne’s next venture will probably appeal more to your little ones than more recent films - the new Thomas & Friends DVD movie, Sodor’s Legend Of The Lost Treasure, due out this autumn.

And a class of lucky schoolchildren from Leicestershire have won the chance to feature on the movie too. 

The winning class of five and six year olds beat off tough competition from more than 50 schools from across the country all battling for the honour to record the a tune to mark the iconic brand’s 70th birthday.

Schools across the country have been celebrating 2015 as the year of friendship for Thomas & Friends’ 70th anniversary by recording their own Happy Birthday songs for Thomas, in association with National Schools Partnership.

Judges picked Westfield Infant School as the overall winners and as their prize the class secured an all-expenses paid trip to a professional recording studio to record the new “We Make A Team Together” song which will feature on the new movie. 

The children also won a unique half-day musical experience run by a music specialist, a special visit from The Fat Controller, £200 worth of musical instruments for their school and Thomas goodie bags all round.
