Continue to learn 'Anthem for the Amazon' as seen below.
ANTHEM FOR THE AMAZON
'Anthem for the Amazon' is a stunning call to action by 500 children from around the world singing to protect the Amazon. Footage includes indigenous children from Peru. Video by Amazon Aid and Rotu studios.
You can listen to the song or you can sing along with the lyrics version. For those that play an instrument, the sheet music is also available. You can also print off the lyrics.
Maybe you could write your own anthem for the Amazon?
Thomas has composed his own song (lyrics and melody) in response to 'Anthem for the Amazon'. He has done an incredible job. Can you play his composed melody on an instrument at home?

Don't forget to have a go (or at least listen to) Sing Up's song of the week.
