Playing with the song

In lesson 1 part 3, we develop our learning by playing with the song.

Playing with the song is incredibly important. It is in these games where children discover their innate musicianship. It also acts as a distraction for your more anxious singers. They begin to sing without realising as they are so engrossed with the action, or game.

You can play with this song in several ways, as outlined on the lesson plan and video below.

Lesson 1 learning objectives:

  • To listen to and imitate song phrases
  • To pitch-match the class
  • To sing as a class
  • To sing a call and response song
