Greater Manchester Music Hub Singing Challenge

The annual Primary Schools Singing Challenge is due to take place on Tuesday 19th May at 2.15pm. Schools around Manchester are due to unite in a song which has been specially written for the Manchester music hub.

Get involved at home, by listening to and learning the song and then joining children around Manchester by singing the song in your home. It is a fantastic song all about Dippy the Dinosaur from the Natural History Museum. It may be familiar to those children who rehearsed in the town hall choir.

GM Music Hub would love to see and hear your performance! The attached flier asks parents and carers to video or photograph your child’s performance and tweet @GMMusicHub #GMMHdippy #GMMHsinging and don’t forget to include @ArdenPrimary. Dippy’s Explorer’s Poster!

You can also email to let them know you took part and receive a special certificate. It would be absolutely fantastic to see children from Arden represented in the challenge.

Good luck and happy singing!
