These 15 lively and catchy songs have been written to cover a whole variety of exciting summery themes, and to celebrate significant dates in the school calendar. You’ll hear songs for Father's Day, leavers’ assemblies, Walking To School week, and many more. From minibeasts to getting exercise, with a generous dose of celebrations, you’re sure to notice a significant shift up in gear as we step into the new season. Another indispensable addition to any school's song library.

We’re living in the rhythm of a joyful life! 

This brand-new resource also contains 15 fabulous assembly plans that you can pick up and easily run with. Designed to help you deliver Collective Worship with ease, each assembly is completely accessible and teacher-friendly, and can be used with reference to a number of different songs from the collection.

We've also included our invaluable music activity pages – one for each song. These help to build upon and release all the musical potential and possibilities contained within each song. Additionally our creative cross-curricular pages will excite and inspire those creative juices.

My Words on Screen™ Online

If you have purchased a Premium Pack online which includes Words on Screen™ v2, you will also immediately receive a Words on Screen™ v2 eSongbook in your
Out of the Ark online account. The eSongbook is where we bring together all of the digital resources available for your product. As well as being able to play the Words on Screen™ versions of your songs, you can also instantly access PDFs and MP3s for your product at no additional cost. Simply:

  • Log in to your online account and select My Words on Screen™ Online
  • Open the online streaming player
  • Click on All eSongbooks in the left hand menu and select your eSongbook

You will find the PDFs and MP3s under eSongbook Resources in the left hand menu of your eSongbook.

From there, you can choose to extract and save All Audio MP3s, All Lyrics PDFs and All Score PDFs. If you just want the MP3s, lyrics or music score for one song, then select the song in the library and use the buttons in the Song Extras area at the bottom of the screen.

You can access these files in the same way if you are using the S!ngchronize™ player that you have downloaded and installed from our website. Simply refresh your player and select your eSongbook. For a downloaded player, you will need to download the eSongbook to your player before you can extract and save the PDFs and MP3s. You will also need to have installed S!ngchronize™ player version 2.0 or above.

Streaming is free for the first 12 months; after that a current Annual Digital Site Licence will be required to be able to continue streaming. Customers will receive a renewal notice by email 28 days before the end of the 12 month free period.

Licence Information

Words on Screen™ User Licences

¹Included with this option is a Words on Screen™ Single User Licence, allowing the Words on Screen™ CD ROM to be installed on ONE computer only.

²To license the installation of the CD ROM onto network servers and/or two or more computers, please purchase an Annual Digital Site Licence.

Annual Digital Site Licences

With so many songbooks and audio files purchased in digital format, you need a legal way to install or distribute copies for use around the school. Out of the Ark’s Annual Digital Site Licences are the perfect solution!

Cost-effective and flexible, our digital licences give you peace of mind so that you know you are covered for all kinds of digital usage for 12 months, including permission to:

  • Install Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Download Words on Screen™ song files from a CD ROM onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Continue to stream Words on Screen™ songs from your Out of the Ark Music online account on any device (beyond your free period).
  • Copy song files from an Audio CD onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Copy MP3 audio files onto more than one computer or onto a network.
  • Upload digital content to an intranet or learning platform.
  • Permit usage of digital content at home for teachers for preparation purposes.

A separate Annual Digital Site Licence is required for each product title that you use in any of these ways and will need to be renewed each year. However, if you have a current Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-Product, then ALL product titles that you have purchased are covered for digital permissions for one year without the need for individual licences.

You will receive a renewal notice by email 28 days before the end of any 12 month licence period.

You can renew your Annual Digital Site Licences by simply logging into your account if you have one and going to your My Licences page. Pick the relevant licence and click RENEW.

Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-product

If you have four or more product titles that you wish to license, it is more cost-effective and convenient to purchase an Annual Digital Site Licence – Multi-Product for just £39.96pa. This licence covers the same usages as the single product licences, but gives you blanket digital permissions for ALL Out of the Ark products that you buy. However, it does not include the right to perform any of our nativities or musicals to an audience (other than pupils or staff) - a separate Annual Performance Licence is still required for each of those titles.
