Chinese New Year Song

Chinese New Year Song

(0)
A fun song written for a Reception class to be performed with actions and instruments to enhance their assembly about ‘Chinese New Year.’ but it would be suitable for the whole of KS1. The actions are contained in the lyrics of the song and tuned percussion were used to create melodic ostinati. The children really loved creating a fan dance to the backing track in between the two verses.

A fun song/rap written for a Nursery class to be performed with actions, props, claves and instruments linking with their topic on ‘Chinese New Year’.

(0)
A fun song to be performed with sound effects on musical instruments written for a Reception class. Written to conclude the ‘Billy Goats Gruff’ story in Kaye Umansky’s ‘Three Singing Pigs’ book.

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

(0)
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.
Nursery Harvest Song

Nursery Harvest Song

(0)
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.
Tiger, Tiger, Orange and Black: An animal song about a Tiger

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

(0)
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

Open the Door to Your Heart in Advent (A Service of rhymes, prayer and song for Advent)

(0)
Written in 2011 and performed by the juniors in two separate schools. This is a thought provoking service with rhyme, readings and reflections including a mixture of old and new carols to help us all prepare our hearts for Christmas. This is not a passive service as each class takes a theme and creates art work to depict this theme, sings or dances to their theme and writes their own reflections to make every child feel a part of the event and hopefully reflect on their own actions during Advent.

Caribbean Treasure Island: A Pirate Song

(0)
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.

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. Children will love following the instructions in the verse and then doing actions or a dance to fit in with the chorus. Have fun with this song everyone! A real asset to a topic on 'Pirates.'

Written in 2012 and performed by St Joseph's R.C. School in Hertford, Advent themes are explored by spelling out the word Advent.

A combination of musical styles makes this a heart-warming and thought provoking service.

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

(0)
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.

Blackbeard's Caribbean Castle: A Pirate Song

(0)
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!'
Wrap up Warm It's Winter: A fun song about Winter Clothes

Wrap up Warm It's Winter: A fun song about Winter Clothes

(0)
A humorous song which we can all relate to having been so wrapped up in winter woollies as children that we could hardly move by the time we got outside to play in the snow. The lyrics of the song tell of all the various layers of clothing children have to endure ending with 'our warmest pair of trews' (a Scottish term for trousers)before getting so hot that hats and gloves are soon discarded 'but please don't tell our Mum's Shh!' Why not create a musical composition using the layers of clothing as ways to build up layers of sound? Another great addition to a topic on 'Winter.'
Building Materials Song

Building Materials Song

(0)
A fun song written for a Year 1 class to add another dimension to their topic on ‘Buildings.’ After learning the song and substituting other number patterns in the chorus as a Maths activity the children selected sound sources to create different building materials and built walls of sound exploring crescendo and diminuendo.

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.
