During the current climate, and with the challenges we are all facing in the coming weeks and months, we want to do everything we can to make our resources available to you for use at home. Music has an extraordinary power to bring us together, it can lift us when we feel low, energise us when we feel tired, and is something we all have in common.

So, to help with the rhythms and routines of your new daily life, we are releasing seven songs, one for each day, all with challenges and activities related to each song. Every week for the next few weeks we will continue to add songs and resources.

We encourage you to sign up to receive our eNewsletters or follow us on Facebook or Twitter to hear about new songs and activities as they are made available.

Together On Tuesday
Together

A fun song that captures the value and fun of doing things ‘as one’!

I'm OK!

Promoting self-worth, self-respect and a healthy sense of personal value, this happy-go-lucky song makes no apology for being ourselves.

 

Thinking Thursday
Living And Learning

A helpful song to reassure us that even in the current turmoil, and the challenges that brings, the earth keeps turning, the sun keeps rising and the rhythms of life keep moving along.

 

Fun Friday
The Bonkers Song

A totally bonkers song that will challenge, entertain and delight. Grab your mum, dad, brothers and sisters and try singing all the different parts together!

 

Family Saturday

Everyone knows you can't have more fun than with a cardboard box! So, set your imagination free creating rockets, robots, super-scary monsters and anything else you desire with this fabulous song.

Week One
 
 

Move-it Monday
Clap Hands! Stamp Feet!

Fun for all to enjoy, this fabulous action song provides plenty of scope to explore the various faces of human emotion, while giving your body a good Move-it Monday workout!

 

Together On Tuesday
A Little Bit Of Kindness

This is an infuriatingly catchy song with a slight Latin lilt and an incredibly valuable message: 'what a difference we can make when we brighten someone's day'.

 

Wellbeing Wednesday
Eat Your Greens

This hilarious concoction of healthy fruit and veg, mixed with not-so-healthy food, is quite a tongue-twister! It’s a challenge to sing, but guaranteed to be a lot of fun!

 

Thinking Thursday
The Planets

'The planets orbit the sun, you see I can name every one!' and you really can with this very catchy song that'll have you naming the planets in the correct order in no time at all!

 

Fun Friday
Spring Chicken

This is an Out of the Ark classic! Young children will have a ball as, one by one, four little chicks hatch out in time for the cheeky, bouncy chorus.

 

Family Saturday
A Song You'll Love To Know

We’re certainly confident on the title! It’s a toe-tappin’ song written in a Cajun style. The verses feature a question/answer (girl/boy or kids/parents) structure and the quirky chorus was intentionally written to give the opportunity for working on diction! Verse and chorus are sung over each other at the end. Very satisfying.

 

Faith-filled Sunday
Everywhere Around Me

A lively song with a strong theme that asks questions about creation and expresses wonder at God's creative design and order.

 

BONUS SONG
Sing Out An Easter Song

A favourite in many schools, this joyful song telling the whole of the Easter story is packed into a wonderfully celebratory chorus and beautiful verses. We thought you'd enjoy singing it in the lead-up to the Easter weekend.

 
Week Three
 
 

Move-it Monday
The Easter Egg Trail

This song cries out for some hopping, jumping and tail wiggling to get your week started and all your Easter activities underway.

 

Together On Tuesday
Do You Like My Easter Bonnet?

A fun song for younger children – sing about the different colours and decorations found on Easter bonnets and enjoy parading your bonnet with pride!

 

Wellbeing Wednesday
Water, Food, Rest And Exercise

A very catchy, simple song looking at the critical ingredients for physical and emotional growth. Easy to remember with lots to explore.

 

Thinking Thursday
The Seed Song

A really useful song to focus on the process of planting, growing and patiently waiting – lessons for life and not just the garden!

 

Good Friday
Three Days That Changed The World

A great fun, upbeat song telling us of the good news of Easter, with a modern twist.

 

Easter Saturday
The Chocolate Song

Last week we asked you what your favourite Out of the Ark Music songs to sing at school were, and this was one of them! Shout 'Yee ha' for chocolate with this country-inspired song.

 

Easter Sunday
Celebrate!

A bright, bouncy and energetic song of joy, giving opportunities to jump, dance and wave your hands in the air to celebrate the good news of Easter.
