Reception

Spring 1

 

The children will use tuned and un-tuned instruments to create sound patterns for the Chinese Dragon. They will develop their ability to make broad changes to sound - dynamics, pitch, duration.

 

They will continue to develop their sense of pulse through body movement and use of claves and shaker eggs.

 

They will sing known songs and develop their abilities to follow the melody broadly.

 

Listening - solo voice

Me! Me! It's only me from my head to toe.

Me! Me! No one but me just you watch me grow! (Repeat)

 

Verse 1 - I've got two legs, they bend at the knee and help me to crouch down low, low, low! I've got two arms to wave in the air and hands to say 'hello.' How are you doing? It's

Me! Me! It's only me from my head to toe.

Me! Me! No one but me just you watch me grow! (Repeat)

Coots! Coots! by J.Oates

A song about the bird with the white beak.

Coots! Coots!  by J. Oates

 

Coots! Coots! Have a white beak, dive very deep, under the water.

Coots! Coots! Have a white beak, dive very deep, for their food.

I'm A Snail by J. Oates

I'm a snail and I leave my trail on the ground.
I'm a snail and I leave my trail all around.

I'm so sorry if I make a mess upon the kitchen floor
or by the back door.

I'm a snail and I leave my trail on the ground.
I'm a snail and I leave my trail all around.

Twinkle Twinkle

Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
how I wonder what you are;
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky.
Twinkle, twinkle, little star
How I wonder what you are.
