Wolfie went a walking

Verse 1

Wolfie went a-walking in his big straw hat,

His big straw hat, his big straw hat,

And he knocked on the door with a rat-a-tat-tat, (clap)

Oh Grandma let me in!

Chorus

Grandma dear, won’t you let me in,

Grandma dear, won’t you let me in,

Grandma dear, won’t you let me in,

It’s cold outside.

Grandma dear, won’t you let me in,

Grandma dear, won’t you let me in,

Grandma dear, won’t you let me in,

It’s cold outside.

 

Verse 2

Grandma heard the knocking and she went to the door,

Went to the door, went to the door,

She peeped through the letterbox,

And saw a hairy paw, (speak) Oh, dear me!

A very hairy paw!

Chorus

Verse 3

‘Little Red Riding Hood,

You don’t look right,

Don’t look right, don’t look right,

You’re much too hairy and you’ve given me a fright, (howl)

I will not let you in!’

Chorus1

Working World  - Recycling

30 – 50 months          

 Fill a recycling bin with different wrappers and packaging for children to explore. Use packaging such as cardboard boxes and chocolate wrappers which make interesting sounds when tapped.

Sing or play Can you make a tapping sound? as you invite children to select a piece of packaging to make a tapping sound. As children play their tapping sounds, sing the second verse to the same tune, and encourage them to sing with you. While a child taps some packaging, others could respond by tapping their knees.

Repeat this activity, asking children to choose a different 'litter soundmaker' to play a tapping sound. Invite children to return the packaging to the bin as you sing.

Invite a child to lead a procession to march around the setting singing and playing their tapping sounds.

40 – 60 months

Talk with children about the importance of putting litter in bins. Say or play the chant The big litter muncher as you open and close your arms like jaws to the beat. Can children copy your arm movements?

Fill a recycling bin with packaging and litter soundmakers and invite children to explore making different sounds using these items. Say or play the chant again and encourage children to play their sounds to the chant.

Invite one child to be the litter muncher. While other children play their sounds, the litter muncher walks around the setting pretending to scoop them up. As the litter muncher approaches a child, their sound stops as it is 'gobbled up'. Repeat the chant until all the sounds are gone.

Working World – Farm Time

Learn the song When we’re on the farm.

Listen to Carnival of the animals by Camille Saint-Saëns;
- Peter and the wolf by Sergei Prokofiev;
- Flight of the bumblebee by Nikolai Rimsy-Korsakov

See if the children can guess which animal is being represented in each piece.

Which instruments can they identify?

How does the composer change the style / speed (tempo) / volume ( dynamics)   of the piece to fit each animal?

 

 

Dear Parents,

 

I would like the children to continue their music learning while we are not at school, and am enclosing links to some songs for you to sing with them.

https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/primary-school-songs-my-ship-rolls-over-the-ocean/z4fmqp3

 

Try making some home-made instruments to accompany the songs – for example:

Plastic bottles filled with rice / pebbles / lentlils – which makes the highest/ lowest/ loudest/ softest sound?

A cardboard box with elastic bands stretched across like a guitar (leave one side open to get the best sound). What makes the sound higher / lower / louder / quieter?

 

Use chopsticks to play different household objects like a drum – pans / food boxes and tins / the sink / table / chair.

I would love to see what you create, so please upload pictures and videos to the St Peter’s Healthy Active Club Facebook page.

Happy singing!

 

Love from Mrs Michell
