KS1 Singing Club

Dear Parent/Carer,

The KS1 Singing Club take place on Mondays – 12.30 > 12.50 (Year 2 Autumn / Year 1 Spring / KS1 Summer).

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

By running this popular club at lunchtime we are much more able to ensure that we are safeguarding pupils effectively without the need for registers.

We aim to build up a loyal following week by week leading to performances to the school in assemblies and at the Christmas Fair.

This year, we are encouraging our Year 6 pupils to engage in NURTURING the younger pupils by attending to support and lead songs!

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

I never saw a dinosaur (Lyrics)

Did you see the biggest footprint in the street?
Could it be a brontosaurus with big feet?
No, I never saw a dinosaur,
‘Cos dinosaurs aren’t alive any more,
They’re now extinct so I just think,
Poor dinosaur, poor dinosaur!
Did you see the biggest shape up in the sky?
Could it be a pterodactyl in mid-flight?
No, I never saw a dinosaur,
‘Cos dinosaurs aren’t alive any more,
They’re now extinct so I just think,
Poor dinosaur, poor dinosaur!
Did you see the biggest shadow on the wall?
Could it be a Tyrannosaurus Rex so tall?
No, I never saw a dinosaur,
Cos dinosaurs aren’t alive any more,
They’re now extinct so I just think,
Poor dinosaur, poor dinosaur! X2

Don't Squish (Lyrics)

1. You may think that I’m scary, or say I’m only small,
Perhaps you think that I’m no good for anything at all!
But actually it’s clever – how I’ve been put together –
And if you get to know me you’ll discover that I’m cool!

Chorus:
So please don’t squish me, please don’t squash me,
Put me back exactly where you got me!
Please don’t poke me, please don’t prod me,
Let me be a happy minibeast!

Glass of Water (Lyrics)

1.
I run very fast and I get out of breath,
My heart beats hard and I need a rest.
I run very fast and what I need next
Is a great big glass of cold, thirst-quenching, sweet, refreshing water!

2.
I jump up and down…
Is a great big glass of cold, thirst-quenching, sweet, refreshing water!

3.
I spin round and round….
Is a great big glass of cold, thirst-quenching, sweet, refreshing water!

4.
I skip and I hop….
Is a great big glass of cold, thirst-quenching, sweet, refreshing water!

H20 (Lyrics)

Did you know that H2O is just a word for ‘water’?
If you haven’t heard of it, perhaps it’s time you oughta! (X2)

Chorus:
H2O – the scientists all know…
If there’s one thing we can’t live without it’s H2O!
If there’s one thing we can’t live without it’s H2O!

Put together H2O is what we need for everyone! X2)

Mine's a mutt (Lyrics)

Dogs come in different shapes and sizes,
Dogs come with different coloured hair,
Pedigree dogs win prizes, BUT…
I think I must declare…..

1. Mine’s a mutt with a tatty haircut,
But he is my best friend!

2. Mine’s a mutt with a tatty haircut,
With a crooked tail and ears that trail
But he is my best friend!

3. Mine’s a mutt with a tatty haircut,
With a crooked tail and ears that trail,
With wobbly legs when he sits and begs
But he is my best friend!

4. Mine’s a mutt with a tatty haircut,
With a crooked tail and ears that trail,
With wobbly legs when he sits and begs,
With a cold wet nose and hairy toes
But he is my best friend!

5. Mine’s a mutt but in the end
HE IS MY BEST FRIEND!

Squirm (Lyrics)

I have a little friend who’s not a bit like me,
He’s long and thin and squidgy and he’s – wrinkly!
He hasn’t any fingers, he hasn’t any toes,
I don’t think he’s got any eyes or mouth or nose!
He hasn’t got a front and he hasn’t got a back,
He hasn’t any teeth to go snap, snap, snap!
He doesn’t make a buzzy noise or even just a cheep,
But he’s very good at making earth down in the compost heap!
Have you guessed who my friend is yet?
I think I’ll call him, ‘Squirm’!
‘Cos he wriggles and he squiggles through the ground,
He’s a worm!

The Friendly Robot (Lyrics)

See me walk,
Hear me talk,
Just watch what I can do.
You may ask,
Name the task,
I’ll do the job for you.

I’m your friendly robot,
And I’ll do the best I can.
I’m your friendly robot,
I’m your electronic man.

Watch me jerk
As I work,
The lights around me glow.
Check my power
On the hour
If batteries are low.

I’m your friendly robot,
And I’ll do the best I can.
I’m your friendly robot,
I’m your electronic man.

When at night
Stars are bright
You’ll never hear my voice.
I won’t beep
While you sleep,
I’ll not make any noise.

I’m your friendly robot,
And I’ll do the best I can.
I’m your friendly robot,
I’m your electronic man.

King Kong (Lyrics)

Do the King Kong konga,
Do the King Kong konga,
Do the King Kong konga,
King Kong, King Kong konga.

Make the song last longer,
Make the song last longer,
Make the song last longer,
King Kong, King Kong konga.

Make the konga stronger,
Make the konga stronger,
Make the konga stronger,
King Kong, King Kong konga.

Music Matters (Lyrics)

1. Music makes me come alive,
Helps me feel so good inside,
Any rhythm, any rhyme,
I just love to sing! (x2)

Music matters, we need songs to sing! (x2)

2. When I hear a happy song,
Makes me want to sing along,
Just a simple melody,
Changes everything! (x2)

Music matters, we need songs to sing! (x2 with harmony)

3. Music makes me come alive,

Music matters, we need songs to sing! (x2 with harmony to V 1 and 2)

Pirates (Lyrics)

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.

Down there under the sea (Lyrics)

Lots to see in the big blue ocean,
Lots to see in the deep blue sea.
Lots to see in the big blue ocean
Down there under the sea!

Lots of fish in the big blue ocean,
Lots of fish in the deep blue sea.
Lots of fish in the big blue ocean
Down there under the sea!

Whales and sharks in the big blue ocean,
Whales and sharks in the deep blue sea.
Whales and sharks in the big blue ocean
Down there under the sea!

Crabs and shells in the big blue ocean,
Crabs and shells in the deep blue sea.
Crabs and shells in the big blue ocean
Down there under the sea!

Down there under the sea,
Down there under the sea!

Alien Shuffle (Lyrics)

(Spoken) Five, four, three, two, one, BLAST OFF!

(Sung) Riding in my spaceship what do I see?
What do I see? What do I see?
One strange alien looking at me,
Looking at me, looking at me.
Its eyes are purple and its hair is green,
It’s the funniest alien I’ve ever seen!

And we can walk like an alien, walk like an alien,
Walk like an alien, walk like an alien,
Talk like an alien, talk like an alien,
Talk like an alien.
(Alien talking noise)

Riding in my spaceship what do I see?
What do I see? What do I see?
Two strange aliens looking at me,
Looking at me, looking at me.
Their eyes are purple and their hair is green,
They’re the funniest aliens I’ve ever seen!

And we can swim like an alien, swim like an alien,
Swim like an alien, swim like an alien,
Sing like an alien, sing like an alien,
Sing like an alien.
(Alien singing noise)

Riding in my spaceship what do I see?
What do I see? What do I see?
Three strange aliens looking at me,
Looking at me, looking at me.
Their eyes are purple and their hair is green,
They’re the funniest aliens I’ve ever seen!

And we can scratch like an alien, scratch like an alien,
Scratch like an alien, scratch like an alien,
Yawn like an alien, yawn like an alien,
Yawn like an alien.
(Alien yawning noise)

Riding in my spaceship what do I see?
What do I see? What do I see?
Four strange aliens looking at me,
Looking at me, looking at me.
Their eyes are purple and their hair is green,
They’re the funniest aliens I’ve ever seen!

And we can shuffle like an alien, shuffle like an alien,
Shuffle like an alien, shuffle like an alien,
Laugh like an alien, laugh like an alien,
Laugh like an alien.
(Alien laughing noise)

It's Christmas...

Christmas (Lyrics)
Christmas, Christmas,
Secrets everywhere!
Christmas, Christmas,
Carols in the air!
Christmas, Christmas,
Starshine in the sky!
Everyone is waiting with a sparkle in their eye!

Christmas, Christmas,
Christmas Day has come!
Christmas, Christmas,
Gifts for everyone!
Christmas, Christmas,
Sing it out with joy!
We celebrate the birthday of a special baby boy!

Christmas Dinner (Lyrics)
The turkey’s on the table
And the sprouts are in the bowl,
The spuds are looking tasty
But the gravy’s getting cold!

The Christmas Pud is steaming
And the stuffing’s in the dish –
But who will get the wishbone
To make a Christmas wish?

The turkey’s on the table
And the sprouts are in the bowl,
The spuds are looking tasty
But the gravy’s getting cold!

We’ve lit the Christmas candles,
We’re ready to begin,
So pull the Christmas crackers now
And join with us to sing…

We wish you a Merry Christmas x3
And a Happy New Year!

My Christmas Stocking (Lyrics)
My Christmas stocking is special,
It’s red and it’s green and it’s gold!
I’ve had it since I was a baby…
So now it is ever so old!

I’ve hung it up next to the fireplace,
It’s waiting all empty and flat!
But when I wake up in the morning,
Please let it be bulging and fat – oh please!
Let it be bulging and fat!

The Snowman Song (Lyrics)
1) Mum, I need a carrot for my snowman’s nose,
Snowman’s nose, for my snowman’s nose.
Mum, I need a carrot for my snowman’s nose
Or else how will he smell?

2) Now I need some raisins for my snowman’s eyes……
Or else how will he see?

There’s a snowman in my garden,
I hope he’s here to stay!
But if the sun comes out tomorrow
I guess he’ll melt away!

3) Now I need some sticks for my snowman’s hands ……
Or else how will he wave?

4) Dad, I need your hat for my snowman’s head….
Or else he might get cold!

There’s a snowman in my garden,
I hope he’s here to stay!
But if the sun comes out tomorrow
I guess he’ll melt away!

The animals in the stable (Lyrics)
The donkey stood in the stable,
The donkey stood in the stall,
The donkey saw a little baby
But all they could say was – Ee-aww!

The mice thy scurried in the stable,
The mice they scurried in the stall,
The mice they saw a little baby
But all they could say was – eek ek!

The cattle stood in the stable,
The cattle stood in the stall,
The cattle saw a little baby
But all they could say was – MOO!

The chickens pecked in the stable,
The chickens pecked in the stall!
The chickens saw a little baby
But all they could say was – cluck, cluck!

The animals stood in the stable,
The animals stood in the stall,
The animals saw a little baby
But all they could say was …………….

Pat A Pan (Lyrics)
Willie, take your little drum, with your whistle, Robin come!
When we hear the fife and drum!
Tu-re-lu-re-lu. Pat-a-pat-a- pan
When we hear the fife and drum
We will have such fun!

Let us celebrate this time,
With a song and words that rhyme!
Tu-ru-lu-re-lu. Pat-a pat –a-pan!
When we hear the fife and drum
We will have such fun!

Let us celebrate and sing
Let the bells all ring!
When we hear the fife and drum!
Tu-re-lu-re-lu. Pat-a-pat-a- pan
When we hear the fife and drum
We will have such fun!
