Solfa, So Good - an activity-based song for KS1 and KS2

Solfa, So Good - an activity-based song for KS1 and KS2

Solfa, So Good is a simple, fun and creative song to use in the classroom. You do not need to be a music specialist to access this song. It builds up a groove using a collection of ostinatos involving boomwhackers, bottles, body percussion and other classroom instruments, helping your pupils to keep a steady beat and play together. The song itself is simple and uses solfa to improve aural awareness and encourage singing in tune together. The step-by-step teaching notes include ideas that centre around creative activites such as improvisation and composition. The form of the song is open and flexible and can be developed to reflect different topics, themes, objectives and levels of learning. Included are two MP3 tracks featuring a vocal performance and a recorder performance.
