Rucstall Primary School

A caring, fun loving, learning community



At Rucstall Primary School, we are trying to raise the profile of music. We have a fantastic Key Stage Two Choir that have sung at many local events and assemblies. We also have a 'song of the week' that the children hear throughout the week in their classrooms and assemblies. Each week there is a new song. 


Here is a link to a playlist for the songs that we have been singing in choir so far this term (there are also a few added extras that we will be looking at when we get back!) if you want to practise, as well as a document listing our song of the week for the next few weeks if you would also like to listen along at home. The children have enjoyed listening to the different songs and it can help bring calmness when they are working.
