Making the most of Christmas carols
Every year we sing carols and Christmas songs, but we don’t always give much thought to how we can make the most of these near-universal resources. Most of our students, regardless of faith or background, will be familiar with the tunes of popular carols.
In the run-up to Christmas, we hear them in schools, shopping centres, on TV and radio, in churches, on the streets and in many other places. There’s no way we can avoid becoming very familiar with these tunes… and we can use them as a starting point for exploring a range of musical features in our lessons.
