Singing, music and drama

Advice from the Advisory Sub-Group on Education and Children’s Issues  (link) shows that there are increased transmission risks associated with music and drama activities. When considering planning such activities, providers should carefully consider this advice, and advice from Education Scotland on these activities.

The Sub-Group has specifically considered the question of singing in ELC settings (link).  It has concluded that singing should not happen indoors as an organised, large group activity.  However, the Sub-Group recognises that children sing naturally in the course of activities and play, and should not be discouraged from doing so, and that singing can also be used to comfort young children when necessary.
