Here at Out of the Ark we strongly believe singing is not just for the school hall or music lesson (though it’s great in these places too of course)! We are passionate about the power of singing, and embedding songs throughout the curriculum and in every classroom in the school.

To help you explore our catalogue we are putting together some handy themed playlists – we'll release these playlists over the next few months, so sign up to our eNewsletter and we'll let you know when we add a new one!
JUST FOR FUN
 
 
A playlist for those days when the children just need to be a bit silly and let off steam (in a controlled way, of course!) or when you want to lighten the mood, as a reward for good work or behaviour, or just when you have a spare five minutes.
