For teachers at school or home
I'm Gonna Shine
If your school is still open and you're looking for activities to do with the children, the National Teachers' Choir is offering this free song by our Music Director Ula Weber to help you get the whole classroom singing. It's also available to families at home.
I'm Gonna Shine is a simple, 2-part song that has lovely actions to help convey the words. From this page you can stream or download various tracks - demo, accompaniment and individual vocal, along with sheet music and lyrics, and a video clip from our pal and brilliant choir leader Liz George, showing optional Makaton signs.
Why not film yourselves singing this song together and share with the world?! If you can't show children's faces then perhaps film a close-up of just their hands doing the signing.
No need for headphones. Just press play on the 'accomp' track and sing along to it.
If you are filming children, please make sure you have parental permission.
Feel free to upload your film onto the NTC Facebook page or tag us on your own timeline! (we reserve the right not to include a video if it’s deemed as inappropriate)
Can you donate?
NTC receives no public funding and is run by freelancers. If you are able to, we would really appreciate a donation to NTC funds so that we can continue sending out new songs over coming weeks and months. We suggest a donation of between £3 and £5 per song.
Thank you. With your help we can bring some sanity to this crazy time!
