Singing schoolchildren in Wokingham will join a 175,000-strong chorus in a bid to set a new world record next month.
Emmbrook Infant School is one of 800 schools across the country taking part in a bid to have the most people signing and singing simultaneously.
Last year 114,277 children smashed the world record of 94,489, and organisers hope they could beat that event by 50 per cent again.
Steve Powell, chief executive at the SignHealth charity, said: “Any schools in Wokingham that decide to take part will be joining hundreds of schools all over the country and some in other countries at 2.45pm on Wednesday, February 6, when they will attempt to break the world record.”
Sign2sing raises funds for SignHealth through a suggested £1 donation from everyone taking part.
Schools wishing to take part are invited to register at www.sign2sing.org.uk.
