Join us for a Summer of Singing
We are delighted to have joined forces with Out of The Ark, Sing Up, and Young Voices to help ensure all schools benefit from the power of singing this summer.
Singing is an essential part of childhood and school life. Singing is part of who we are.
When singing is an integral and coordinated part of school life, it can develop children in a myriad of exciting ways and contribute to their bodily, creative, spiritual, social and artistic development.
With the warmer weather and longer, lighter days ahead of us, we want to inspire and enable you to sing this summer, to harness the undoubtable benefits singing brings, and begin the recovery process as we adjust to a new normal.
We invite you to use our resources and those of our Summer of Singing partners to help students get ready to learn by boosting their mental wellbeing, while at the same time rebuilding your school community, values and culture through singing together.
Voices Foundation will be offering you:
Virtual Singing Assemblies
10-15 minute singing assemblies for children, parents and teachers! Join us from wherever you are for some fun, uplifting singing led by our VF practitioners.
Beyond The Sings Teaching Resources
Weekly downloadable teaching resources that expand on our #VFVirtualSing series. Each week includes teaching tips, warm ups, extension activities & more!
We are keen to support school leaders, classroom teachers, & music specialists to understand what you can do to deliver the music curriculum within the current guidance and to inspire you with what could be possible in the future.
