With the help of Vocal Force, we've been launched a project that helps PE coordinators explore songwriting techniques - and demonstrates how to use singing as a tool on the field, in the classroom and throughout the school day.
The song below is an example of the lyrics created from one of the songwriting workshops. Check it out - and have a go yourself!
Find out more about the project in our Magazine article, Sing when you're winning.
