Sticks And Stones

Add To Basket

This is a song about cavemen and how they used fire for everyday things. It is suitable for very young children. Play castanets, click clacks or sticks to the rhythm of the chorus. It will work well in an assembly. However there is no backing track, as I feel a guide vocal may be helpful for young children.

Ration Book Blues

Add To Basket

This song takes you back to the 2nd world war. Ration books were a big part of life in Britain and long queues for food, were an every day occurrence. For an assembly, children could form a line to sing the song, holding their ration books. Maybe throw them in the air at the end of the song!
