KS2 Big Sings

Big Sings are a wonderful opportunity to bring together KS2 pupils from multiple schools for a morning of singing, led by a specialist singing leader. These events take place at a host school which is joined by other schools in the locality. We provide resources for two performance items for each participating school to learn and perform together in a massed choir. Alongside these performance items, schools can perform a song of their choice with backing track or live accompaniment. 

CPD
At the heart of a Big Sing event is our free CPD session for primary classroom practitioners. You will be invited to attend a session where a specialist singing leader will be sharing singing warm-ups, musical games and model session plans in preparation for the Big Sing event itself. The CPD will be a practical music workshop suitable for all levels of experience and confidence. 

Cost per locality of schools FREE

What people are saying

The end of term performance was really enjoyed by the parents. I liked the way that it wasn’t a “clarinet show”, it was a reflection of the musical skills we had learnt in the sessions

Patricia Hogan-Hussein, St. Marys Catholic Primary, Bognor Regis

On top of learning a new instrument, children also learnt listening skills and following instructions, developing confidence and perseverance skills.  As a teacher, I began to feel more confident as I was encouraged to co-teach with the CIL programme leader 

M Patrick, Gossops Green Primary School

Today was WONDERFUL I feel really inspired to get music alive in our school  

Sarah McFarlane, St Margaret’s CE Primary School, Crawley

A very worthwhile day, thank you. I can go straight into class and try out some new ideas – great for a non-specialist.  

Claire Baldwin, The Meads Primary School, East Grinstead

Today has reinvigorated my lesson plans – I feel that my lessons will be diversified. It was a super engaging day!  

Rosa Lemos, 2023 conference attendee

I love the Teams CPD you do – I have been to (almost) every one this year. I am not a music specialist teacher so all help is wonderful!
