I am very excited to tell you that Mark and Helen Johnson of Out of the Ark Music are releasing a song every day online. They have just released songs for Week 3 and have already posted two full weeks of daily songs. Singing is a very important part of Archdeacon life and it is so good for everyone's wellbeing. We often sing Out of the Ark songs in school, and your children will definitely have taken part in an Out of the Ark Nativity play.
Here is the link:
These songs are a brilliant singing resource for all year groups: each song has an audio track to sing along to, with onscreen lyrics. Some include additional dance or action videos, and all have an activity worksheet attached. Some of these worksheets are as simple as giving actions for the songs, while others have cross-curricular links or art/craft suggestions.
Each week there is a song posted under the following headings:
Together on Tuesday
The resource includes some lovely faith songs and specific Easter songs, some of which you children may recognise. I'm delighted to tell you that Spring Chicken is on the list, under Week 2, Fun Friday. It includes a very cute dance video for the children to watch and join in with. Even year 6 children will tell you that Easter isn't Easter at Archdeacon without a performance of the Spring Chicken song, so here is an opportunity for everyone to sing it!
Happy Easter everyone!
