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

Ostinato

‘A continually repeated musical phrase or rhythm.’
A Scary Fairground Ride (Lyrics)

There’s nothing quite as thrilling as a scary fairground ride!
The joy of being upside down and feeling churned inside!
Your body starts to quiver from your head down to your toes,
Why’s it so exciting?
I can’t tell you GOODNESS KNOWS!

1. Straps on, hold on tight, make sure you’re the proper height!
2. First one in the queue! Changed my mind what shall I do?
3. We are going to quickly drop OOH…………PLOP!
4. How I did that I don’t know. Can I have another go?

Ostinato Olympics (Lyrics)

I’d like to wind a medal, I’d like to set the pace,
I’d like to be a runner or a swimmer in a race!
I’d like to be a champion, I’d like to live the dream;
To be the best that I can be and represent my team!

1. Jumping the hurdles all the time, running to the finish line (x2)
2. Hit the ball across the net, win a point then win the set! (x2)
3. Lifting weights! With your mates! (x2)
4. Ride your back around the track, round the bend and then come back! (x2)

Mrs Wright (Lyrics)

Mrs.Wright had a fright in the middle of the night!
She saw a ghost, eating toast, halfway up a lamp post!

1. Dum dum dum dum! X2
2. Dum-de dum dum do………, do do do do x2
3. In the middle of the night! X2
4. Saw a ghost that was climbing up a lamp post! X2
5. Ooh———————– x2

Up Sprang the Spring (Lyrics)
The frog jumped down the garden path
To the pond where he was born.
Where he grew into a tadpole,
From a little froggy spawn!
All the frogs were croaking
And the birds began to sing,
UP jumped the froggy and
UP sprang the spring!

1. Birds are singing and here comes the Spring! X2
2. Frog jumped down the garden path to the pond where he was born! X2
3. UP jumped froggy and UP sprang the Spring!
4. All the frogs were croaking and the birds began to sing! X2

After a Storm (Lyrics)

After a storm there’s a magical light,
When the storm clouds part and the world’s alright,
And the sun streams through and the air is clear
And the birds sing out that the sun is here!

1. Calm the storm and welcome the light x4
2. After the storm there’s a magical light x4
3. Magical light, magical light x4

Pentatonic

Wouldn’t it be lovely (Lyrics)
Wouldn’t it be lovely,
Simply doing nothing,
Sitting in the sunshine dreaming away?
Wouldn’t it be lovely,
Lovely doing nothing,
Nothing, nothing, all of the day!
Everybody Loves to Swing! (Lyrics)

Play these notes, dig that beat!
Sing this song, tap those feet!
Sway around, do your thing,
Everybody loves to swing!

OH! How I love to play,
Jazzing all the way,
How I’d like to stay…….just grooving.

Play these notes, dig that beat!
Sing this song, tap those feet!
Sway around, do your thing,
Everybody loves to swing!

The Chicken Dance (Lyrics)
Dance in a circle, everybody,
Bow to your partner then advance!
First, clap your hands and then each others,
Then do the chicken, chicken dance!
Ten Toe Tapper (Lyrics)
Sylvia’s the dancing queen,
She’s the best you’ve ever seen,
Hat on head and cane in hand,
Tip top tapper in the land!
TIP! TOP! TIP! TAP!
When she dances all around
Her feet hardly touch the ground,
How I wish that you had seen
Sylvia the dancing queen!
As I Was Going Out (Lyrics)

As I was going out one day
My head fell off and rolled away
But when I saw that it was gone
I picked it up and put it on!

And when I got into the street
A fellow cried, ‘Look at your feet!’
I looked at them and sadly said,
‘I’ve left them both at home in bed!’

I went to the theatre (Lyrics)
I went to the theatre tomorrow,
And took a front seat at the back!
I said to the lady behind,
‘I cannot see over your hat!’
She gave me some well-broken biscuits,
I ate them then handed them back.
I fell through a hole in the ceiling,
And broke a toe bone in my back!
Limericks (Lyrics)

A sea serpent saw a big tanker,
Bit a hole in her side and then sank her;
It swallowed the crew in a minute or two
And then picked its teeth with the anchor!

We come to a school that’s in Ealing,
It really is very appealing!
We all try our best
And then we get a rest,
It really is such a good feeling!

The teachers are really quite sweet,
They spend every day on their feet!
They help us to grow and they help us to know
And that’s why our school can’t be beat!

Good to be me (Lyrics)

1,2,3, good to be me, 1! 2! 3! X2

1,2,3, it’s good to be me and I want the world to know
it’s good to be me! X2

I’m a special person and there’s only one of me!
And no-one else is prouder of the person that is me! REPEAT ABOVE!

1,2,3, good to be me, 1! 2! 3! X2 (Instrumental BREAK)
I’m a special person and there’s only one of me!
And no-one else is prouder of the person that is me!
1,2,3, good to be me, 1! 2! 3! X4
