I remember with fondness the large wooden encased radio that was wheeled out once a week for our lesson on singing (folk music).

I wish I had kept those A5 booklets.

Looking back i wish I had made more of those times.

And the songs are good to this day.

Anyone else recall those moments???
Anyone have any booklets?

Thank you very much for that response. A wonderful array of memories.

Been on EBAY and now trying to get some originals.

Thanx

Marvellous stuff

In our classroom the loudspeaker was at the back... why on earth did we have to turn to face it?!

And we sat staring at the huge radio, as if we could see the singers. But we were young and that was the latest technology then.

Lots of these booklets still appear regularly on EBay UK. Often at reasonable prices (£2.00 to £4.00) but there are also rip-off merchants who will aim for much higher prices.
Any I list (with accurate descriptions) are just surplus ones I've bought as part of a job lot to help complete my collection.
A list of the contents of most of these booklets can be seen Here

Cheers
Nigel

Thanks for that hint - I have a hankering for some Music Workshop stuff, so I've set ebay up to alert me!

From the sixties onwards I used to teach in primary schools in Scotland and later in Norfolk. 'Singing Together' was the highlight of my week (and of the pupils)
I used to have a practice session in between broadcasts, on an old piano which the stronger boys would trundle into our classroom. We all loved the pamphlets, and getting a new one each term was a real pleasure.
I must say the songs were very varied, from many parts of the world, and from different centuries. (For instance, 'Sumer Is Acumin In')

Excellent and worthwhile programme. You will find on this site the sources for obtaining old copies etc.

My elementary school (California, 1940s) had a remarkably effective method of teaching children songs. It consisted in playing 78s that were so old & worn that the words were almost unintelligible. The teacher would start the record, and if you thought you understood a word or phrase, you raised your hand and suggested it. If you were right, the teacher wrote it on the blackboard. After the record had been played enough times for the whole song to be guessed, everybody had learned it.

Nutty's link should now point to or perhaps better to a thread on Mudcat where I attempted to index what on ST is on Joe's site.

I still have a batch of pamphlets posted to me (without a sender address) that I hope one day I will get round to adding to Joes set.

Old thread, SunrayFC and I'm not sure you are still around but I do remember our school's technology.

As well as the radio, there was the reel to reel tape recorder. A device used in Welsh lessons for us English (although I was N and this and books were S Wales...)

Then there was this marvellous copier thing. Our headmaster in primary school used to type things on this blue looking paper. He'd then put in this machine and turn a handle. Out would come say the words for the songs in our carol concert. It actually looked quite efficient.

I do remember the school having or getting a tv. We had "Making Music" another BBC thing on that

Can anyone guide me to an index of songs from the Singing Together series, please?

The link in nutty's post above (from 2009) no longer works.

All the best
Harry

Here's the closest thing we have to a full index. (and still being added to)
