Music with Gordon 11 May: Primary

What to do today

Today, we have a new song to warm up. Look out for new Karaoke Corner blog posts with songs to sing along with.

Please join in with the activities below. The more who can join in, the more fun, too. Not all of the activities are for everyone, so just do the ones you enjoy and as many times as you like.

Play along using any kind of instrument or use body percussion – clapping, tapping, clicking, stamping your feet.

Activities (links below)

  1. Hello Song
  2. Bounce and catch
  3. Clap, tap and sing along to Clap Your Hands Together.
  4. Watch the video and join in with Yoshi Whoops! Can you play it using  your own name? What about someone else’s name or that of a friend. Try it with a favourite character or soft toy.
  5. Now try playing Yoshi Whoops! using one or two instruments.
  6. Over the Irish Sea. Join in or hold on to a scarf with a partner to move to the song.
  7. Time to move. Play the instruments along to the video or get up and dance. If you like, get a scarf to play with.
  8. Time to chill. This week we are listening to some gentle music from Minecraft by C418. There are lots of tracks to choose from, but this one is called Sweden, which is where the Minecraft game originally came from.
  9. Goodbye Song

Hello Song

It’s a time to settle down for some music and there are lots of ways to join in. Use it on its own or before doing another music activity.

  1. Join in and sing, clap, tap and move along to the song!
  2. Maybe you can try using your voice
  3. Sign hello
  4. Tap fast and slow
  5. Sign “Stop” at the end
  6. Have fun!


Hello, hello
Very nice to see you
Hello hello,
How are you today?
Hello, hello
Very nice to see you
Hello hello,
How are you today?
We say “Hello”
We’re very pleased to see you
We say “Hello”

(can you say and sign hello?)

We say “Hello”
We’re very pleased to see you
We say “Hello”

(tap along with the music, sign “Stop” at the end)

More ideas with this video

  • If you can’t tap along, maybe a friend can tap your arm or foot for you so that you can feel the beat of the music.
  • Can you stamp your feet to the music? Can you tap your shoulders or your head? Move your fingers
  • Maybe try playing along with a shaker, or tap something that makes a sound that you like. A box of cereal?

DIY Sock Bubble Blower!

You’ll need one of each of the following materials to make a bubble snake:

  • 1 empty plastic bottle
  • 1 clean sock
  • 1 rubber band
  • 1 pair of sharp scissors

How to Make Your Sock Bubble Blower

  1. Wash your plastic bottle so it’s safe to put your mouth on it.
  2. Use your sharp scissors to carefully cut the bottom end off of the bottle. Discard the piece you cut off.
  3. Slide the sock over the end of the bottle so it’s stretched tight across the hole. It shouldn’t cover the drinking end of the bottle.
  4. Secure the sock to the bottle with a rubber band.

How to Make Bubble Snakes

This is the fun part! The bubble snakes are simple to make once you have your sock bubble blower assembled.

  1. Dip the sock end of the sock bubble blower into your bubble mix.
  2. Make sure the sock is saturated with the bubble solution.
  3. Point the bottle downwards and gently blow into the drinking end.
  4. Play with your homemade bubble blower!

remember to take photos please

Health and wellbeing – play in the garden or outside, on your balcony

let’s finish with relaxation, 

I hope you have a really good day!  Sophie
