KS1 Singing Club

Dear Parent/Carer,

The KS1 Singing Club begins on September 15th 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 on Friday 8th September as a register is kept. 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 myself (Nic Mehew) and Julia Newman (Year 4). Every half-term, we invite you in to hear some of our pieces in an informal concert.

Warmest regards,
Nic Mehew

Calypso!

Anytime you need a calypso,
Here is what you must do!

First of all you need a rhythm so
Shake a little, shake a little, shake a little shaker

And you bang a drum and you sing and strum
And then there’s a calypso for you!

My Old Man!

OH, my old man’s a dustman,
He wears a dustman’s hat!
He bought two thousand tickets
To see a football match!

Singing oom-pa, oom-pa stick it up your jumper,
Rule Britannia!
Marmalade and jam!

We threw sausages at our old gran!

Please Wash Your Feet!

Please wash your feet!
Because they don’t smell very sweet!
And if you pick the fluff from in between your toes
You’ll find that it is good enough to eat!

Clap hands, stamp feet, stand still, now turn around
Jump up, crouch down, now make yourself look… GRUMPY!

Slap thighs, click heels, stretch high, now turn around,
Hop left, hop right, now make yourself look…. SCARY

Clap hands, stamp feet, stand still, now turn around,
Jump up, crouch down now make yourself look… UGLY!

Slap thighs, click heels, stretch high, now turn around,
Hop left, hop right now make yourself look… HAPPY!

Look sad, look glad, look bad now turn around, 
Look left, look right, now make yourself look… GORGEOUS!!!!

The Bear Went Over The Mountain

Oh, the bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain…….
To see what he could see! (x3)

(He saw the other side!)

Going to the Zoo!

Teacher’s taking us to the zoo tomorrow (x3)
Teacher’s taking us to the zoo tomorrow,
We can stay all day!

We’re going to the zoo, zoo, zoo
How about you, you, you?
You can come too, too, too
We’re going to the zoo, zoo, zoo!

Big black bear all huff-puff puffing!
Coat too warm he’s huff-puff puffing!
Don’t go near his huff-puff puffing
Or you’ll be scared away!

Elephants with trunks all swaying,
Monkeys running ‘round and playing!
Listen to what teacher’s saying:
‘We can’t stay all day!’

If You’re Happy…

If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands (x2)
If you’re happy and you know it and you surely want to show it,
If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands!

Nod your head
Stamp your feet
Turn around
Do nothing
Shout ‘Hooray!’

Incy-Wincy

Incy-Wincy spider went up the water spout!

Down came a raindrop and washed the spider out!

Out came the sun and dried up all the rain!

Incy-Wincy spider climbed up the spout again!

Click, Click

Click, click (x4)
Clap your hands (x4)

Click,click – be happy! Click,click – be safe!
Click,click, be clever with a smile, smiley , smiley face!

We know how to be safe and sound so clap your hands and turn around! (2)

Keep Fit Calypso!

Jack climbed up the beanstalk,
Up, up, up so high!
Jack climbed up the beanstalk ‘till he reached the sky!
He heard a fee-fi-fo he heard a fi fo fum
He heard a fee he heard a fi he heard a fum!
Jack climbed down the beanstalk with the money sack.
Jack climbed down the beanstalk ‘I’m never going back!’

Jack climbed up the beanstalk,
Up, up, up so high!
Jack climbed up the beanstalk ‘till he reached the sky!
He heard a fee-fi-fo he heard a fi fo fum

Jack climbd down the beanstalk with the magic hen,
Jack climbed down the beanstalk, ‘I’ll not go there again!’

He heard a fee-fi-fo he heard a fi fo fum
He heard a fee he heard a fi he heard a fum!

So Jack went chip, chop, chip
So Jack went chop, chip, chop
So Jack went chip, so Jack went chop,
So Jack went chop …….AAAARGH!

Mountain Song

Now first you gaze at the mountain (x3)
‘Cos that’s what mountaineers do!

Climb, climb up…
Walk, walk, walk, walk round…
Run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run down….
Wave, wave, wave, wave at the cameras…
Shake hands with the people….
Dream……..of the mountain
