Free Easter Songs. Click the above image to sing-along on our YouTube channel.
Usually by now, most UK schools would have closed for the Easter break. But with the Covid-19 pandemic, no one is doing ‘usually’ anymore, and we now have the strange situation where schools are continuing to operate throughout the Easter holidays, opening their doors for vulnerable children and the children of key workers. So, as a small gesture to all the hard-working school staff out there, we wanted to offer some of our Easter songs for free, for all of these schools to use over the Easter period.
We’ve been working for a while on new Lyric Videos for all our songs. We’ve just uploaded FIVE of our most popular Easter songs to our YouTube channel. They’re all taken from our ‘Easter Assembly Collection‘, and whilst we’re aware that school assemblies probably aren’t taking place at the moment, we’re hopeful that you’ll still enjoy singing these songs together in your setting.
Over the next few weeks Spring is due to arrive here in the UK (honestly). In two weekend’s time, it’s Mothering Sunday, then the following weekend the clocks go forward, marking the start of British Summer Time. The following Sunday it’s Palm Sunday and the week after that is Easter. Spring is definitely about to be sprung.
To help get your children in a Spring music mood, we have one Early Years Spring music title that covers all these events, ‘Our First Spring’. Enjoy singing the six Spring songs, or use the included script to stage a simple Spring musical. It can also be used for Mother’s Day or Easter.
Running Time = 10-20 minutes
Minimum Rehearsal Time = 2 days
Cast Size = 10 to 100+
‘Our First Spring’ tells the story of a newly hatched chick searching for her mother. On her journey she comes across many signs of Spring including other friendly new-born animals and a not so friendly big bad wolf!
It contains 6 super-easy songs, all based on nursery rhymes or familiar tunes. Plus, you get all the backing music tracks so there’s no need for a pianist. You also receive PowerPoints, character masks, sheet music and lots of extra resources! And it’s easy enough to rehearse and stage in just a day or two.
WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY:
“We only bought the Our First Spring download to have some seasonal songs to sing along to in our day nursery. But we loved it all so much that we ended up doing a little performance for the parents. Something we’ve never done before! So I just wanted to thank you for providing such well thought out and well presented resources, which gave us the confidence to try something new..”
DESCRIPTION: This simple musical retells the biblical Easter story in a sensitive, child friendly way, with catchy songs and an easy-to-use script.
WHAT’S NEW? The updated version has a new longer script, which has also been reformatted making it easier to use. We’ve also updated the production notes (staging advice) document, with lots of new ideas. And we’ve completely changed the PowerPoint scenery file, with all new images.
WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY: “It was really fantastic… Straightforward to use, with a delightfully simple script and easy-to-learn songs. The children loved the musical and as a result, they acted and sang brilliantly. The audience was full of praise with some saying it was the best Easter performance they had ever seen. One parent was particularly amazed that we were able to show what is a difficult story in such a “simple, sensitive and meaningful way”. Thanks for providing such a great Easter resource.”
DESCRIPTION: ‘E’ is for ‘Everyone loves Easter’, ‘A’ is for ‘Animals born at Easter’… you get the idea…. this short Easter musical performance, looks at a number of Easter traditions and asks the question, ‘what is Easter really about’, before eventually coming to the conclusion that Easter is all about Jesus.
WHAT’S NEW? The updated version has new printable character masks (bunnies, chicks and lambs). It also includes a new longer script. We’ve also updated the production notes (staging advice) document, with extra ideas. And we’ve changed the PowerPoint files, with new slides.
WHAT CUSTOMERS SAY: “It was really lovely! We had lots of positive comments. The songs were really appropriate and the children loved performing them and even I’m still singing the songs! It was so good that I’ve come back to buy another CD now!”
It’s just two weeks till Easter, so if you still haven’t planned your school’s Easter assembly or your church’s Easter service, then look no further than our ready-to-use, all age ‘Easter Assembly CD‘. It contains 10 brilliant Easter songs, with vocal and backing tracks. Plus six ready-to-go assembly scripts with stories, plays, activities, ideas, readings, prayers and more.
This easy-to-use CD / Download also comes with printable masks, songsheets, sheet music, PowerPoints and more.
Here’s what some of our customers have said about it:
Used It So Much
“A few years ago we went to buy three of your general assembly packs, but then realised that for not much more we could buy your “101 assembly songs” 15 CD pack, which is staggeringly good value for money. Anyway, this Cd was included and it was something we hadn’t looked at before buying from you. But over the last few years it’s probably the one CD that we’ve used the most. Great songs, great assembly content. The children love singing the songs and always ask for them again and again, even when Easter is long gone! Well done.”
