Flying High

Add To Basket

This is an interaction song, where the children ( with the help of teachers if needed) hold 1 large piece of cloth up in a big circle. Place a little soft toy bird in the middle of it. At first the song sings of the bird being asleep and the cloth must be kept very still. Then in the chorus the bird is flying high, so wave the cloth and make the bird fly in the air, always trying to keep the bird over the cloth! To make it more of a game, if the bird touches one of the children, when flying, they are out. Great for a party game too!

Solids Liquid And Gas

As it’s name implies, this is a science song. Children can simply sing the song, to learn information about how many particles are in solids, liquids or gas. However, for an assembly performance why not get the children to be the particles. Clustering together for a solid, doing a mexican wave for the liquid and running around separately for the gas!
