I first did this in 1997 (when I used to have a life!), but it’s still good fun to do today! Target age - Year 6 or 7, but I’ve also done this with older students too.
Give students chime bars, jingle bells and a triangle to play along with the notes in the presentation…the test can sing along! Good fun.
The backing track is just that - piano chords and bass. The tune is played and/or sung by students. I’ve also included a bonus track with ideas for how chime bars could be used with other traditional Christmas songs…
Just one verse and chorus, but you can use 3 different playback speeds as they get better and better. The backing track is piano and bass only.
