The la-la song - A circle song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

The la-la song - A circle song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

At last! Musicbuds is here offering an exceptional range of original and well-crafted resources underpinning common musical objectives whilst focused on prominent EYFS themes. Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers. This song was originally written for a group of young children who were all second English language speakers, with varying degrees of language development. The 'la-la' part of the song was written so that everyone could join in. The kinaesthetic approach – ‘doing’ as you sing was an easy way to demonstrate language (whilst singing it). The musical inspiration for the music was the circular Greek songs often performed at weddings! Can be used as a stand-alone circle song/part of Circle time; a physical song to develop bilateral integration (using two hands/feet together in a coordinated manner e.g. clapping/stamping) or reciprocal movements (where first one hand or leg and then the other carries out the same movement in a rhythmical way) or as Song 6 in our 30-minute music and movement session. Each song includes: 1) A comprehensive lesson plan -highlighting EYFS and Music objectives covered -directions on classroom management -recommended list of props/visual aids -ideas for Extended learning  -inclusive planning for children with EAL/SEND profiles -different ways to deliver the material from Music/EYFS perspectives -formatted to allow easy cut-and-paste options into planning documents 2) Audio tracks - vocal & backing 3) Sheet music - for piano & guitar 4) Lyrics  -teachers’ lyrics with directions for classroom management  -children’s lyrics suitable for a Songbook

Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers. This song was written explicitly to help children cross their imaginary midline (essential in developing a ‘dominant’ hand) by making arcs with the rainbow ribbons. The repeated rhythms and gently undulating melody line support the development of the actions required and the modulation from major to minor adds harmonic interest to the music. Can be used as a stand-alone rainbow song; a physical song to encourage children to cross their midline or as Song 9 in our 30-minute music and movement session. Each song includes: 1) A comprehensive lesson plan -highlighting EYFS and Music objectives covered -directions on classroom management -recommended list of props/visual aids -ideas for Extended learning  -inclusive planning for children with EAL/SEND profiles -different ways to deliver the material from Music/EYFS perspectives -formatted to allow easy cut-and-paste options into planning documents 2) Audio tracks - vocal & backing 3) Sheet music - for piano & guitar 4) Lyrics  -teachers’ lyrics with directions for classroom management  -children’s lyrics suitable for a Songbook

Pull the circle out - A giant elastic song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

Pull the circle out - A giant elastic song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

At last! Musicbuds is here offering an exceptional range of original and well-crafted resources underpinning common musical objectives whilst focused on prominent EYFS themes. Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers. This song was written for ‘Circle Time’ or ‘Emotional Literacy’ time – a reflective period during the week when children are faced with objectives regarding their personal, social and emotional development. Inspired by some of the Orff-style circle activities including the ‘cup song’, this was written to encourage children to work as a team. It introduces a rock ’n’ roll walking bass providing a solid, rhythmical underpinning. Children can feel the pulse as they follow the actions which are mirrored through distinctions in pitch (e.g. ‘up’ is sung an octave higher than ‘down’). Can be used as a stand-alone giant elastic song; as part of a lesson on prepositions; as part of a physical lesson developing muscular strength and body awareness or as Song 7 in our 30-minute music and movement session. Each song includes: 1) A comprehensive lesson plan -highlighting EYFS and Music objectives covered -directions on classroom management -recommended list of props/visual aids -ideas for Extended learning  -inclusive planning for children with EAL/SEND profiles -different ways to deliver the material from Music/EYFS perspectives -formatted to allow easy cut-and-paste options into planning documents 2) Audio tracks - vocal & backing 3) Sheet music - for piano & guitar 4) Lyrics  -teachers’ lyrics with directions for classroom management  -children’s lyrics suitable for a Songbook

Without a sound - A classroom management song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

Without a sound - A classroom management song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

At last! Musicbuds is here offering an exceptional range of original and well-crafted resources underpinning common musical objectives whilst focused on prominent EYFS themes. Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers. This is an essential ‘tidy up’ song and, although written to clear away percussion instruments at the end of a session, it works just as well for tidying up resources in other situations too. The minor melody in 3/4 time gives a lilting, reflective quality to the music. Because it is in a legato style (smooth), with a gently moving accompaniment, the music encourages the children to place their instruments away gently without disrupting the musical flow. Can be used as a stand-alone classroom management song for tidying away musical instruments (or any other classroom resources) or as Song 10 in our 30-minute music and movement session. Each song includes: 1) A comprehensive lesson plan -highlighting EYFS and Music objectives covered -directions on classroom management -recommended list of props/visual aids -ideas for Extended learning  -inclusive planning for children with EAL/SEND profiles -different ways to deliver the material from Music/EYFS perspectives -formatted to allow easy cut-and-paste options into planning documents 2) Audio tracks - vocal & backing 3) Sheet music - for piano & guitar 4) Lyrics  -teachers’ lyrics with directions for classroom management  -children’s lyrics suitable for a Songbook
