Teachers TV: KS1/2 Music for Pupils - Three Songs

Songs with different features and vocal exercises. Two vocal tongue twisters are used for a warm-up exercise and then we learn three songs: Kye Kye Kule - a West African action song, The Frog Song - a simple Japanese song rehearsing pitch, John Kanaka - a sea shanty with call and refrain. Each song has a different feature and may be more appropriate to different age groups, they can be used as repertoire for developing Ongoing Skills (Units 1, 8 and 15) or within specific units, e.g. Kaeruno uta ga - Unit 5 Taking Off: Exploring pitch.

    These can be used as building blocks or lessons - I have used in Year5/6 class to teach rhythm, melody, accompaniment , chords etc.ie using Kye Kye Kule to introduce he musical terms in a structured, layered approach. Thank you

    Great stuff. Singing is also great for presenting new words to kids learning a foreign language for example the action songs at www.funsongs.co.uk.
