SING UP WEBSITE
Have a look at the website ‘Sing up’, particularly the ‘Sing up at home’ section:
There are many resources so do feel free to explore. Sing up have created special themed playlists for you
Feel free to use these however you'd like!
This half term, your child's topic in Reception is 'The Great Outdoors'. Why not encourage your child to listen to and enjoy the song 'As I was walking down the street'. the lyrics, performance track and backing track are all available. It is a simple little song for your child to learn and enjoy.
If you haven't already done so, enjoy 'In the Spring' and watch the Lullaboogaloo video about exploring the woods in springtime.
‘Song of the week’
'Song of the week' is often quite trick for Reception children, but your child can always enjoy listening to it.
This week, Sing Up wanted to take a moment to celebrate families – how different they are and how important they are to all of us. That's why their 'Song of the Week' is the brilliant, big-hearted What makes a family. It's so singable and feels like exactly the thing we need - we think you'll love it.
Although Reception children are young, I would still love them to try and learn part of last week's 'Song of the Week': 'One moment, one people'
Just learning the chorus would be good.
This is one moment,
(This is) one people,
(This is) one lifetime,
(This is) one song. (x2)
The song is no longer 'Song of the week' but can now be found in the section 'Empowering/Inspiring'.
Click on that box and you will find the song in the list. You will be able to access a track with vocals, a backing track and the lyrics. I would love it if you could record your version of the song chorus (or the whole song!) and send it into school. Then (with your permission) we could upload these videos onto the school website.
CHARANGA YUMU WEBSITE
If you have any difficulties logging into Charanga Yumu, please let me know.
Once you log in, you will be able to access a file of songs for children aged 3 to 5. Click on that box. Then click on the box 'Scheme Songs'. After this you will be able to select from a list of songs.
Have a go at learning and singing 'Old MacDonald had a farm' which is a lovely song for your 'Great outdoors' topic. There is a video to help you.
