Caribbean Treasure Island: A Pirate Song

Caribbean Treasure Island: A Pirate Song

A jolly Pirate song in a Calypso Style with plenty of opportunity for movement, fun and games. During the chorus a real coconut could be passed round with the person left holding the coconut when the music stops having to do a forfeit. Or half a coconut could be banged on the floor as it's passed round to create a rhythmic accompaniment. The possibilities are endless.

Nursery Harvest Song

Nursery Harvest Song

A fun song written for a nursery class to perform at their harvest festival assembly. The children stamped their feet and played claves to accompany the song. The song provided a starting point for many other activities and would be a good resource for the whole of KS1.

We're Going on Safari: A fun animal song

A fun yet informative song giving children the opportunity to march in time to the music with their pretend binoculars in the chorus then practise echo singing in the verse whilst trying to guess the safari animal the teacher is describing as she/he sings. A great starting point for a topic on animals or habitats.

Children will love dancing the 'Hornpipe' during the chorus of this song and will learn a few interesting facts about Captain Blackbeard as they sing along in the verse. Add some actions to help the children remember the words and you will have a ready made assembly song. Have fun with Captain Blackbeard 'the terror of the deep blue sea!'

'Oo Arr Where's My Treasure?' A fun pirate song with actions

'Oo Arr Where's My Treasure?' A fun pirate song with actions

This fun song was written for a foundation stage class. The lyrics of the well known 'What Shall We Do With The Drunken Sailor' were changed to include all the keywords and ideas associated with pirates. The children then performed the song in a circle with actions for the verses then joining hands and stepping in and out of the circle (hokey cokey style) during the chorus. A great song to enhance a topic on Pirates or The Sea.

An action packed fun song about following a map and searching for treasure which could be a prelude to a whole host of other activities.

Easter Bunny Counting Song: A Spring or Easter Counting Song

Easter Bunny Counting Song: A Spring or Easter Counting Song

This simple Easter and Spring song will delight children especially especially if you let them hop around the room in time to the music and use real Easter Eggs as visual aids. You could even incorporate an Egg Hunt in the Song and increase the numbers of eggs included.

Rainbow Coloured Dragonfly: A song about a dragonfly, it's colours and movements

Rainbow Coloured Dragonfly: A song about a dragonfly, it's colours and movements

A revised version of a short song written in the 90's for a nursery class. I have included more verses exploring the amazing variety of colours found in different species of dragonflies and given the children the opportunity to 'Dance now like dragonflies do,' in the chorus. As your children accompany the song with instruments observe how they pick out the complex rhythms of 6/8 time.

Sleepy Little Snail: A Mini Beast Song

Sleepy Little Snail: A Mini Beast Song

A slow, sweet, simple song to help children be aware of different tempos in music whilst learning a few 'snail facts' as they sing. Children could accompany this song with instruments selecting appropriate rhythmic patterns and then create their own snail music.

Just Like Romeo and Juliet: Song about unity linked to Romeo and Juliet

Just Like Romeo and Juliet: Song about unity linked to Romeo and Juliet

This was written as an extra song to add to the fantastic 'Shakespeare Rocks' by Steve Titford published by 'Musicline!' This is a fabulous show and I would highly recommend it. 'Just Like Romeo and Juliet' could stand alone as a song linking to a topic on Shakespeare or the Tudors and it also contains the odd moral or two. The children performed this with a Tudor like dance in the chorus.

Five Fat Bumble Bees: A Mini Beast Song

Five Fat Bumble Bees: A Mini Beast Song

A busy bumble bee song where children learn to count backwards from 5, simple subtraction skills and practise vocal and listening skills whilst having great fun in the chorus moving in time to the music, buzzing and flapping like bumble bees. Why not listen to 'Flight of the Bumble Bee' by Rimsky Korsakov and encourage the children to select instruments to create their own 'Bumble Bee music? A great addition to a topic on Mini-Beasts

Jogging Giraffes: A fun animal song.

Jogging Giraffes: A fun animal song.

A song inspired by my Grandson Harry and his love for his toy giraffe. The song has a lazy swing and relays how having extremely long legs does not make running and walking easy. As I researched this song I found out that when giraffes walk, they move both legs on one side of their body and then both legs on the other side and when they run unlike dogs for example their back legs go outside of their front legs. All fascinating stuff which led to the lyrics in the chorus. Actions would enhance this song greatly and why not get the children to get down on all fours and emulate the walking and running movements of a giraffe themselves. They will love it. Hope you and your children have lots of fun with this simple little song.

Tiger, Tiger, Orange and Black: An animal song about a Tiger

Tiger, Tiger, Orange and Black: An animal song about a Tiger

Set in a minor key this slightly scary song conjures up images of tigers prowling swamps and jungles ready to pounce on their prey. The children will love creeping to the music of the verse then the more up beat chorus is about visiting tigers in the zoo where the children are completely safe. Create actions and get the children to compose or improvise accompaniments to the song and you could have a show stopper on your hands. Enjoy! More animal songs available at www.fun-kee-music.co.uk

The Boogie Woogie Petshop: A fun song about Pets

The Boogie Woogie Petshop: A fun song about Pets

A Boogie Woogie Fun Song that children love. The song tells the story of a visit to a Pet Shop where the children beg their Mum to buy a pet and are disappointed each time she says no however she succumbs in the last verse when she sees a cute little puppy and everyone goes home happy. The song was written for an end of topic assembly on Pets but it is a great addition to topic based music lessons on pets or animals. The song is a great starting point for rhythm work including dance and for creative music.

Pretty Ladybird: A song about a ladybird.

A sweet simple song written for 'Playgroup' children using the tune of the well known nursery rhyme 'Three Blind Mice.' The lyrics have been changed to fit in with a 'Mini Beast' theme and tell of a lady bird wearing ' A red dress with polka dots.'

The Pirate Alphabet: A great song for a Pirate Topic

The Pirate Alphabet: A great song for a Pirate Topic

A reworking of the well known 'Farmers in the Den' to include the alphabet sounds of the word 'Pirate' and lots of pirate artifacts. Teachers could have a treasure chest of relevant artifacts in front of them and children could guess something beginning with each letter of the word 'Pirate' in the chorus.

'I am a slug!' A Mini Beast Song

'I am a slug!' A Mini Beast Song

The soft shoe shuffle lament of a poor lonely slug in search of some tender loving care even though he admits 'I eat all the lettuces grown by your Dad' in the lyrics. A short but fun song that children will love. Suitable for use with Play Groups, E.Y.F.S and K.S.1. and a great addition to a topic on Mini Beasts. The children will love not only singing the song but could create their own dance to accompany the idiom of the music and have great fun accompanying the song with instruments.

The Alphabet Song: A New and English Alphabet Song

The Alphabet Song: A New and English Alphabet Song

This song was written for Joss Innocent Landers of St Joseph's R.C. Primary School in Hertford. Joss is a really experienced Nursery Teacher and was desperate for a new Alphabet Song having become heartily sick of the 'Twinkle, Twinkle' American Song that ends with the sound 'Zee' and not 'Zed' as we say in England. I've included a chorus with a simple hand jive so the children can practise their rhythmic skills as well as having lots of fun.
