Staff Room

Welcome to the Staff Room

This is the teachers area of the Fun With Folk web-site for English Folk Songs and Singing Games.  Fun With Folk is designed for Children and Primary Schools (5-11yrs):
  • To be used in the classroom using an interactive whiteboard.
  • For children to access at home or in the classroom.

EFDSS have worked with experienced teachers to develop education resources to support your work in the classroom.

The Songbook and how to use it
The Fun With Folk songbook is a growing resource.  New songs will be added to build a songbook that covers all of England.
You can use it in the classroom, or use it to prepare lessons beforehand.
