Playground Songs & Games

§  We think Singing Games could be a very simple way of introducing singing into your school.

§  They are great brain gym activities, using physical, rhythmical, left/right and complex co-ordination.

§  They don’t require great musical ability so can get kids singing without worrying about skills.

§  Playground singing can happen at the time of  the school day most associated with conflict.

§  They can involve members of the school community who are less associated with delivering the curriculum and so help build a stronger community.

§  Young singing leaders or playground buddies can find these quite easy to lead.

§  They are suitable for kids who may not normally join in singing activities because they feel shy or sad.

§  They support PSHE.  It’s a healthy and sociable activity.  Children may be doing things they don’t usually do in the classroom like making eye contact, holding hands, choosing partners.
