Our YMI elves have been busying away creating lots of fun Christmas music activities for you all and we’re so excited to share them with you.

More importantly, we can’t wait to see you join in and we hope you will share your class activities with us on Twitter by tagging @GlasgowCREATE.

Primary 1-3 – Father Christmas…He got stuck!

P1-3 children will love joining in with this Christmas action song.ย 

The songโ€™s simple and familiar melody (Frere Jacques) is accompanied with Makaton signs that match the beat and rhythm of the music. PDF includes flashcards to help with learning the signs.ย 

When you are confident with your singing and actions, you can add percussion instruments to your performance!ย ย 

The video and PDF will show you how.ย 

Primary 1-3 – The Little Church Bellย 

This song has a lovely message: Everyone is important – no matter how small your voice is!ย 

Join in with the chorus of the song with Mrs. Brackenridge. You might even want to add some jingle bells and other Christmassy sounding instruments!ย 

The PDF has the lyrics to help you learn.ย
