We Put the WHAM in Newham

Just because we’re stuck at home doesn’t mean we can’t still sing with our friends!

During the National Lockdown in Spring 20202, pupils from Nelson, Lathom, Selwyn, Portway, Park and Winsor primary schools took part in a community-wide Big Sing, learning and performing the ultimate Newham anthem – “We Put the WHAM in Newham”.

We’d love to see more performances from schools across the borough!

You can find learning resources including powerpoints, chord progressions, and lyrics here. 

If your school would like to take perform WHAM in Newham, or if you’d like to plan a similar project, please get in touch on info@newham-music.org.uk.
