Top 10 Songs For The Spring Term

The spring term is full of Easter preparations, spring optimism, new topics to explore and chilly weather — and Sparkyard has songs for all of these! With over 1000 songs to discover, it can be exciting (if a little overwhelming!) deciding where to start. So, who better to help you find some firm favourites and discover some hidden gems, than other teachers? Here are the top 10 songs played in Sparkyard during the spring term 2023 . We hope they’ll give you lots of inspiration for your class this year!

10 – Tidy Up!

This is a great song to use at the end of free-play time or at the end of the day, and we’re sure it’s in the top 10 because teachers come back to it over and over again! Try combining the tidying with some sorting games: colour, shape, size, material, etc.

9 – In 1666

The whole story of the Great Fire of London is packed into one fabulously catchy song. Fun to sing and full of facts! Even if you’re not covering the Great Fire of London this term, take a look at our other Class Assembly songs and see if you can find one for your topic.

8 – The Seed Song

This is a fun-filled song reminding us that when we plant seeds of patience, love and friendship, that’s what will grow! This is a great participatory song for younger children, with actions as well as call-and-response elements in the verses.

This song has four linked assemblies, so why not  see if you can incorporate one (or more!) this term?

7 – Give It All You’ve Got

With its heavily syncopated chorus, rap verses, clapping and shouting, the message to work hard and value every member of the school will come across loud and clear. The chorus requires you to fit the name of your school into the lyrics, creating a personalized school anthem.

6 – Sing Out An Easter Song

This joyful song of celebration is suitable for singing in church or school and works especially well for Easter performances and assemblies. The melody, music and message are all equally positive.

5 – I Like Books!

Not just for World Book Day! A love of reading is such an essential part of learning, so we’re really glad to see this song hitting the top 10 this term. Full of fun and bursting with enthusiasm, this will be a great starting point for discussion, but is even more fun to sing!

4 – The Chocolate Song

Shout ‘Yee-ha’ for chocolate with this country-inspired song. Once you’ve sung through the list of delicious delicacies, you won’t be able to wait for Easter to get your hands on some of those eggs.

The song page has five different curriculum links, with ideas for connecting the song to Literacy, Design & Technology, Geography, Maths and RE.

3 – Together

Together, from Songs For EVERY Assembly, is not only one of our most played songs for the spring term, but is also one of our most played songs EVER! It’s an easy song for KS1, or whole-school singing, that captures the value and fun of doing things ‘as one’!

2 – Easter Jubilation

Kick up your heels with this frolicking celebration song! Children won’t be able to stop themselves joining in the dance with the catchy, upbeat track.

The music activity on the song page explores Klezmer music and choreography.

1 – Spring Chicken

And of COURSE, there’ll be no surprises that our top-played Easter song is Spring Chicken!

‘I’m... a... spring chicken!

I’m yellow and small.

My feathers are fluffy and they’re keeping me warm.’

We’re so excited that children around the world love singing this song so much at this time of year. How early will your class be requesting it?
