"The Reading Song" Catchy and easy  for Book Week

"The Reading Song" Catchy and easy for Book Week

Preview the song https://youtu.be/71zb72b4jig ( NB video provided has different animation) This catchy song is a good starting point for Book week or World book day. It is suitable for non-specialists and those more confident. It has an easy to learn chorus so the children will soon pick it up. It tells the story of a child who reads at night under the duvet with a torch. The verses show the places and characters that are imagined. There is an extension in the form of a harmony for those more confident teachers. It is based on some of the words in the chorus. Basically, it is a run down from C to lower G Provided in the resource -1. An animated video of the song2. A PPT version (if you prefer that format)3. Mp3s of the vocals and backing4. Lyrics / guitar chords 5. The lead line in notation (Sibelius or Jpeg) 6. The harmony (extension) It’s a walking bass, and its shown in white on the harmony score.

Key Stage 1 Art Plan 5 week Unit

Key Stage 1 Art Plan 5 week Unit

This resource is a set of 5 Art lessons based around the theme of the sea, oceans and water for KS1. The key skills that are taught include creating different tones and shades with paint and pencil, using shapes, patterns and lines and experimenting with different materials.There are 4 different artists used as inspiration - Turner, Hokusai, Hockney and Monet, all of whom have painted the sea or water using very different techniques. The children have the opportunity to work alone for 4 lessons and part of a collaborative group project for the final lesson. They have lots of opportunity to choose what materials they work with.The lesson plans are very detailed and include a list of any resources you will need to get out of the cupboard. There are also details of curriculum links and examples of work from my classes. I have included the simple powerpoint I used for the series of lessons, which contains examples of the artists' work around which the lessons are based. I hope you enjoy the lessons! They are great fun!
