Singing Stars

A programme of ten weekly sessions to support singing in Key Stage 1. Each 45-minute session includes physical warm-ups, musical games and a wide variety of songs of varying difficulties, tailored to the ability of the class.

A performance to the rest of the school, and sometimes parents, is arranged at the end of the programme.

A CPD session for school staff can also be arranged as part of this programme, to aid class teachers in the development of singing during and after the programme.

Infant Music Parties

Two or three infant schools are invited to join together for a one-off session of singing and musical activities.

We ask each participating school to buy a specific songbook (published by Out of the Ark: one of the My World series - usually under £20).

This songbook contains twelve songs - we ask that children are taught the four selected songs prior to the date of the Infant Music Party; leaving a further eight songs for schools to explore on their own.

An Infant Music Party starts at 9.30 at the host school and finishes at 11.30am, allowing visiting schools time to be back for lunch.

Bespoke programmes

Bespoke singing programmes and workshops can be tailored to specific needs and occasions of schools. This may include one-off workshops, targeted activities to encourage boys to sing, holiday activities, and for school-organised concerts or events.
