Our syllabi are designed to address issues relevant to the children’s lives, whilst helping to broaden their horizons. Songbound promotes music from all around the world and the children enjoy singing in a multitude of languages. To help contextualise the singing, each term is given a theme that relates to the time of year. Syllabus themes are chosen by our Choir Leaders and have recently included: peace, friendship, rain and colour. During public festivals such as Diwali, Eid or Christmas, children learn relevant festive songs to encourage shared celebration and enjoyment of different beliefs.
In addition to songs taught to them, our children compose their own songs with the help of Choir Leaders and visiting artists. Composing the lyrics and melodies for these songs provides the children with a deeply personal involvement with syllabus themes. It is also a unique opportunity to create something they can be proud to call their own.
