ALOUD IN THE CLASSROOM

White Rose Primary School

White Rose Primary School Royal Visit

Back in 2019, Aloud ran a project in the primary school attended by our Founder Tim Rhys-Evans. As a pilot project for our Aloud in the Classroom programme, we wanted to try out some new ways of working to support primary teachers in how they approached singing with the children in the classroom.

White Rose Primary School is in New Tredegar, a former mining town in the Rhymney Valley – and a community hit hard by the closure of the pit. Aloud choir leaders worked with the children in the school – and their teachers – over a number of weeks to write a new school song based on their motto “Believe, Learn, Grow Together” which was then performed in front of a very starry audience – when TRH The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall visited the school!

The project won an award at the Arts & Business Cymru Awards 2020 in partnership with The Hodge Foundation. For information on how to become a Corporate Partner, or to get in touch, please use the links below:

Song written by the children of the White Rose Primary School

This is my home, This is my town,
Ev’rybody’s welcome here, have a look around!
This is my school, these are my friends,
We’re like a family. We love to spend each day learning how to…

Chorus
Believe, Learn, Grow together!
Believe, Learn, Grow together!
Believe in friends and family,
And learn how we can live in harmony,
And grow, together.

And when I’m grown up and I step out on my own,
I’ll think of all the lessons learned along the way.
Who knows how far away I’ll travel from White Rose?
But where I go, I’ll always know the things I’m telling you today…

So just Believe (Credu), Learn (Dysgu), and Grow (Tyfu) together (gyda’n gilydd)!
Believe (Credu), Learn (Dysgu), and Grow (Tyfu) together (gyda’n gilydd)!
And when I come to leave this school, I will always have this simple rule,
Believe and learn and grow together!
