The runners up to this competition were Newbarns Primary and Yarlside Nursery and Primary Schools.

The three schools will all receive copies of their individual CDs, which they can sell on to family and friends to raise money for either their school or a charity.

The aim of the exercise is for the songs produced by the schools to have a positive influence and increase the amount of children who walk, cycle or scoot to school.
