Have a look at the website ‘Sing up’, particularly the ‘Sing up at home’ section:

https://www.singup.org/singupathome

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!

Here are some examples of children's work so far:

 

This half term, your child's topic in Class 3 is 'Tomb Raiders'.

In Sing up at home, there are songs and activities for learning about topics. Click on the box for ages 7 - 11.

Continue to listen to and learn the song 'Tutankhamenwhich is a great link to the topic. I would love to hear some of you sing this song if you would like to send me a video. Let Hattie and Gabriella be your inspiration! If you haven't already had a listen to this song, try to listen this week. 

Tutankhamen lyrics

Many years ago, in the land of the Pharaohs

A young boy lived, not yet fully grown

Many years ago, Egypt needed a ruler

And Tutankhamun ascended the throne

Tutankhamun, the nine year old king

Tutankhamun, what will the future bring?

 

Many years ago, in the land of the Pharaohs

The young king said: "Who will be my Queen?”

Many years ago, he chose Ankhesenamun,

The bride to be was only thirteen!

Tutankhamun, the nine year old king

Tutankhamun, what will the future bring?

 

Now for ten years, he reigned over Egypt

But the boy king was frail and he died

He was buried, along with his treasure.

More than three thousand years passed, the tomb was forgotten

With the secrets of the Pharaoh inside…

 

In 1922, Carter made a discovery

King Tut’s tomb, buried in the sand

Suddenly the world knew his face and his name.

The most famous Pharaoh in all of the land.

Tutankhamun, the nine year old king

Tutankhamun, what will the future bring?

Tutankhamun, the nine year old king

Tutankhamun, what will the future bring?

 

Song of the week’

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.

Join in and learn to sing and sign the Makaton with singer songwriter Al Start.

However, I would still love you all to learn 'One moment, one people' which 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. Again, if any of you have had a go at singing this, please record it and send me your videos! 

 

CHARANGA YUMU WEBSITE

If you have any difficulties accessing Charanga, please let me know.

I hope you all enjoyed listening to Blackbird by the Beatles. I can see that many of you have already learnt to sing and really enjoyed the song. Well done!

Week 2:

This week, if you haven't already done so, please start to learn to SING the song 'Blackbird'. Click and listen to 'Learn to Sing the Song' and then join in, a verse at a time. When you feel ready, use the ‘backing only’ and be the singing stars! Can you follow the shape of the pitch (high and low sounds) with your hand?

Pick either the Warm-up Games or Flexible Games Track and find the pulse (the heartbeat of the music) by marching around, or copy the rhythms (long and short sounds) by clapping the patterns back. Copy back the riffs. If you don’t have an instrument, sing the pitches back to ‘La’.

This week, listen to another Beatles song and compare with 'Blackbird'. Please click on the box which says 'Yellow Submarine'. Listen to and appraise the song. Click on the 'Appraise' button and consider the questions, i.e. 'Did the tempo stay the same all they way through the song?'. Read the fast facts about the song. Which song do you prefer? 'Blackbird' or 'Yellow Submarine'? Why? 

Try to find and move to the pulse (steady beat) of the music.

BIT OF FUN!

Stephen Fischbacker of Fischy Music has written a new song called, ‘We won’t stop singing’. They are looking for children and adults to sing on a recording. This is what he writes:

“ Obviously we can’t get you to come into the recording studio at the moment but if you check out this link...

... you can find out how to send in your recording. We would love to get as many people as possible, particularly children at this time.  Many thanks! Stephen Fischbacher Creative Director”

 

This may be something which you would like to get involved in from home!
