A diverse collection of summer songs

By Steph

What a wonderful collection of diverse songs to bring the joy of long Summer days to any school assembly. Can't keep from moving to the First days of Summer with its groovy beat, the beautiful and guaranteed school leavers tear jerker 'Change & Grow', the catchy 'Walking to School' will be whistled and hummed by all on your walk to school and there's even a lovely song to celebrate your Dad:) Start the celebrations now that Summer's Come!


Perfect for Collective Worship

By Kate

Summer Assembly Songs is absolutely perfect for whole school collective worship and class collective worship, containing the usual catchy songs with meaningful lyrics. I love the assembly scripts because they can be used and adapted by school leaders and class teachers, yet they are simple enough for pupils to use when they are planning and leading collective worship. Another great resource for our school from Out of the Ark Music!
