Good morning  Primary 3,  I love to go to the beach do you?

It’s almost time for the Summer holidays and I hope we will all get to the beach sometime soon but we can go today through the magic of music!

Today’s clip is all about the sea and there is a song to learn and sing, a story to hear and some listening which I hope will take you to the beach!

After you’ve tried the song, scroll down to the story of The Magic Fish and then down  to the listening activity.  Close your eyes and you can just about feel you’re at the sea side! See how many sounds you can hear then draw a lovely sea side picture! Have a great Summer!

Good morning Primary 2 !

Is the sun shining? 

Let’s see if you can help it shine with a Wee Summer Sing!

I’m sure many of you will remember singing this song with me away back at the start of Primary 2! This time the actions are a bit different and a bit trickier, using your throwing, bouncing and catching skills! Just keep trying it until you can do it! You can have a go every time the sun comes out!

Good morning  Primary 3! Are you good at tidying? I have been tidying up all my  kitchen cupboards and sorting out my wardrobe while I’m at home.

Now I would  like to sort out the instruments in the Music Room! Maybe you could help me get started? I want to sort them by how they are played, some are blown, some are hit, some are plucked and some are shaken! See if you can sort the instruments in the picture . Then maybe you can add some of your own?

Which group do you like best?

Good morning Primary 3, how are you feeling today?

This week was going to be Health Week at school and I hope you are having lots of exercise while you are at home, I am going for cycles and long walks. We also have to think about our emotional health and this song reminds us about paying attention to our feelings. You might remember this Fischy song, it has lots of lovely actions too so join in and enjoy it!

I have made a table to help me think about my emotions, maybe you could add some pictures to it? Let me know how you feel.

What makes you Happy?  What makes you sad?

What makes you angry? What makes you excited?

Good morning Primary 2,  how are you feeling today?

Today we are going to be thinking about keeping healthy! I know lots of you will be enjoying doing exercise every day. I have been cycling a lot and going for long walks. Here is a  Fischy song you may remember to get you moving and to think about how you are feeling inside too.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZlWfgU4wTWY

We also have to choose healthy food to eat and the next song is full of lovely vegetables which are so good for you! I wonder which one in the song is your favourite?  Mine is the tomato!

Find an old piece of paper and get ready to crunch it up when the munch and crunch and scrunch sounds comes. When the popping sound comes make a pop with your lips! Make a lovely mmmmmmmm sound for the yummy bit!

You could make up your own verse about your favourite vegetable or fruit, let me know what you would choose to munch today!

Good morning P3, I hope you are not scared of spiders! 

I see your story today is all about a spider! I know a song about a very special spider from Africa called Anansi .

He is very clever and always tricking other animals and people with his cunning. Listen to his song and try to join in.

What instrument or sound do you think would suit Anansi? Perhaps you can find something at home to play when you sing the song for Anansi or something to play like a drum for the lovely rhythm of the song?

I would love to see some of your pictures of Anansi with his instrument or maybe you could even make up a new verse for his song? Happy singing!

Good morning Primary 2/1 and P1 ,

Have you ever wished you had a Robot?

 

Or   that you were a Robot?            

What would you look like?

What would you sound like?

How would you move?

Here is a song called I am a Robot for you to listen to and enjoy. There are lots of actions and there  is a bit in the song for you to make up your own robot moves!

The robot in the song says,      beep beep beep beep bop!

When this bit plays clap the rhythm of the words. What would your robot say? Try singing the song with your own robot words and rhythm and your robot moves! Let me know how you get on!
