Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, regrettably we are unable to invite parents into school for a tour of Berkswich CE primary and nursery. We understand that choosing the right setting for your child is one of the most important decisions that you will make in your child’s learning journey. With this in mind, we hope to provide you with a range of opportunities to allow you to gain an insight into life as part of our special Berkswich community and the chance to ask questions. We certainly welcome the opportunity to support and reassure you as you organise your child’s first steps into Nursery and Reception. We are offering virtual meetings to provide an opportunity for new parents to meet our headteacher, EYFS leader and teaching staff. This will provide a great opportunity for you to ask questions and find out about our community and learning at Berkswich CE. Your child is a vital part of this process, and so we welcome them to join in with the meeting.

Let's Make Music Together

We were very excited to learn that PopUK have created an uplifting song which encourages us to experience happiness, hope and joy as we sing together. There are so many benefits of singing and we'd love it if we could enjoy these together. Below, you will find the lyrics. Underneath these, there are words that can be printed out, music with the melody added and - for when you have learnt the song - the backing track to sing along to. 

 

We'd love you to email a photo of you or you and your family singing along. If you send your photo in, it may be included in a video collage which Mrs Joint will be making for everyone to see, celebrating our Berkswich CE community singing. When we are back at school, we will be ready to sing as a giant school choir! 

Lift up your voice

Verse 1 

Sing in every season 

Sing in sun or rain 

Sing in stormy weather 

When the skies are dark and grey 

Sing to share together 

Sing to join as one 

Sing to help each other 

When we’re feeling all alone 

 

Pre-Chorus 

There’s a  joy deep in our souls 

As we gather, young and old 

Sing the music loud and strong… sing this song  

 

Chorus 

Lift up your voice, our hearts rejoice 

Feel the rhythm, feel the beat, let’s sing with joy 

Lift up your voice, our hearts rejoice 

Feel the rhythm, feel the beat, let’s sing with joy  

Lift up your voice. 

Lift up your voice yeah 

 

Verse 2 

Sing when there’s no answer 

Sing when we’re confused 

Sing when we are worried  

And we don’t know what to do 

Sing to heal our sadness 

Sing to calm our minds 

Sing to make us hopeful  

For the future, throughout time 

 

Pre-Chorus 

There’s a joy deep in our souls 

As we gather, young and old 

Sing the music loud and strong… sing this song  

 

Chorus 

Lift up your voice, our hearts rejoice 

Feel the rhythm, feel the beat, let’s sing with joy 

Lift up your voice, our hearts rejoice 

Feel the rhythm, feel the beat, let’s sing with joy 

Lift up your voice. 

 

Bridge 

Oh oh oh oh 

Lift up your voice 

Oh oh oh oh 

Lift up your voice 

Oh oh oh oh 

Lift up your voice 

Oh oh oh oh  

 

Chorus 

Lift up your voice, our hearts rejoice 

Feel the rhythm, feel the beat, let’s sing with joy 

Lift up your voice, our hearts rejoice 

Feel the rhythm, feel the beat, let’s sing with joy  

Lift up your voice.
