Just keep singing, just keep singing!
Children at Eastover love singing, so here are some ideas to help them keep singing at home.
Sing Up Songs: Unfortunately we are not allowed to give access to our school Sing Up membership. However, Sing Up have made some songs available for children to use at home. I will be adding these to this page. I will also add song-words for some of our most popular songs on this page for children.
Out of the Ark: Many of the songs from our Out of the Ark collection of songs can be found on Youtube. They are not necessarily complete, but they will be a starter. I will add links to these on this page in due course.
You could also browse the songs we use on the Out of the Ark website. Children can listen to clips to remind them of the tune.
You can access Out of the Ark here: https://www.outoftheark.co.uk/series/words-on-screen
BBC: There are lots of resources on the BBC, for example:

Children who have a ukulele at home could carry on practising what they have been learning in school. I will be adding some simple songs on here with chord diagrams.
Many children have already discovered videos on Youtube that teach you how to play an instrument. There are some that show how to play chords on ukulele and guitar and I will find some links to add to this page.
Children may have other instruments at home, or be able to use a phone/tablet app which allows them to play a virtual keyboard, xylophone, drum etc. Again there are videos which can help them to learn. There will be opportunities in the future to perform what they have learned .
STAY SAFE ONLINE: Please remember to ask an adult to help you find these videos
Eastover Choir - Carol Singing at Sydenham House
Well done to the children who sang Christmas carols at Sydenham House, a care home in Frederick Road, Bridgwater. They did a fantastic job .
A big well done to everyone in the Choir. Their performance at the MacMillan Theatre was great and I am very proud of them all.
