KS1 Singing Club

Animal Dear Parent/Carer,

The KS1 Singing Club begins on September 17th at 3.20 in the Music Room and runs until 3:50.

Many young children enjoy additional opportunities to engage in singing activities and it is a great way to end the day. Indeed, many of the songs we sing are available below (backing tracks and lyrics) for use at home.

In order to keep our children safe, you MUST register by replying to the email sent out in advance. If your child will be away one week, PLEASE let the office know so that we don’t ‘go looking’. Pupils will be collected from classrooms and may need a snack with them.

Please pick up your child from the back door to the Music Room in the upper school playground on time as staff have other obligations after this club.

This year, the club will be led jointly by Mr N. Mehew and other staff. Every half-term, we invite you in to hear some of our pieces in an informal concert.

Warmest regards,
Mr N. Mehew

Animal Fair

I went to the animal fair,
The birds and the beasts were there.
The old baboon by the light of the moon
Was combing his auburn hair.
The monkey fell out of his bunk,
And slid down the elephant’s trunk.
The elephant sneezed and fell on her knees,
But what became of the monkey, monkey,
Monkey, monkey, monk?
(Harmony – optional – 2nd time only)
Monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey etc.

The Change Train

Woo, hoo!
All change on the choo choo change train
Buy your ticket, all aboard, no journey’s the same
All change on the choo choo change train
Come on it’s a brand new day
Some changes are so very exciting
Some changes can be really fun
Some changes are a little bit frightening
Give you butterflies in your tum! Woo, hoo!

All change on …..
Some changes make you feel a bit lonely
Some changes might mean saying goodbye
Some changes make you feel a bit angry
They can even make you want to cry. Woo, hoo!
All change on…….
Some changes take you to fun new places
I wonder what we’ll see and do there
You’re nervous to be meeting new faces
But excited ‘cause it’s all brand new Woo, hoo!
All change on the choo choo change train
Buy your ticket, all aboard, no journey’s the same
All change on the choo choo change train
Come on it’s a brand new day Woo, hoo!
All change on the choo choo change train
Buy your ticket, all aboard, no journey’s the same
All change on the choo choo change train
Come on it’s a brand new day
Come on it’s a brand new day

Monkey, monkey, monkey, monkey etc.

Earth & Beyond

Chant: Five! Four! Three! Two! One!
Sing: Two men on a mission,
Journey into the unknown.
Don’t know what they’ll find there,
What myst’ries will unfold.
A voyage of discov’ry,
Though centuries apart,
One man seeking new lands,
One searching the stars.
Year! Fourteen ninety two,
Christopher Columbus
Sails the ocean blue.
Year! Nineteen sixty nine,
Astronaut Neil Armstrong
Walks upon the moon.
Chorus

Ship! Santa Maria,
Columbus finds an island,
Hispaniola.
Ship! Apollo eleven,
Armstrong takes a small step,
One giant leap for mankind.

Chorus
Chant: Ten! Nine! Eight! Seven! Six! Five! Four! Three! Two! One!
Blast off!

Pirates!

The pirate ship is coming,
We know it’s on its way,
The pirate ship is coming,
We’ve seen it in the bay.
A skull and crossbones on the mast,
A wild and noisy crew:
The pirate ship is coming
And it’s after me and you!
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum, pirates like to have their fun!
Yo-ho-ho on the ‘Salty Breeze’ as they sail the seven seas.
The captain wears an eye-patch,
A cutlass in his hand,
And on the bridge beside him,
His faithful pirates stand.
A skull and crossbones on the mast,
A wild and noisy crew:
The pirate ship is coming
And it’s after me and you!
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum, pirates like to have their fun!
Yo-ho-ho on the ‘Salty Breeze’ as they sail the seven seas.
They’re seeking gold and silver
And jewels of ev’ry kind,
They’ll board each sailing vessel
And take what they can find.
A skull and crossbones on the mast,
A wild and noisy crew:
The pirate ship is coming
And it’s after me and you!
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum, pirates like to have their fun!
Yo-ho-ho on the ‘Salty Breeze’ as they sail the seven seas.

Here Comes Sally

Here comes Sally, walking down the alley,
Here comes Sally, just like that.
Here comes the other one, just like the other one,
Here comes the other one, just like that.
Well, I looked down the alley and what did I see?
A big, big man from Tennessee.
Well, I betcha five dollars I could whoop that man.
I betcha five dollars I could whoop that man.

This Old/Michael Finnegan

There was an old man called Michael Finnigan,
He grew whiskers on his chin-i-gan.
The wind came up and blew them in again,
Poor old Michael Finnigan! (Begin again)

This old man, he played one;
He played nick-nack on his drum,
With a nick-nack, paddy whack,
Give a dog a bone;
This old man came rolling home.
