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!

Solar System

Add To Basket

A song to teach the order of the planets in the solar system. Why not make a circle and have a large ball in the middle, representing the sun. The children pass a smaller ball round to represent the planets orbiting the sun. See if you can get the ball back to the first child before the song finishes. Maybe it will go round several times! Backing track included for an assembly performance.

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.

Shapes

Add To Basket

This is a chance to learn about shapes. The song does not specify the name of the shape, so you can choose which one you want to sing about, according to the level of the children. Sing the verse then hold up a shape and count the sides of it, before starting all over again! I think this would make a good assembly song for the very young, but have not added a backing track, so they can sing with the vocal.
