BIG SONGS Set1


Price: 6.95

compiled & arranged by Douglas Coombes
This comprises a Teacher's Book and 5 Wallchart-size song sheets. The collection contains 5 Action Songs for Reception and Key Stage 1 children (ages 4 - 7). Believing strongly that under guidance, children will read music if they are exposed to the sight of it, Douglas Coombes has brought out this pack of songs which can be used in the same way as BIG BOOKS, to let the children SEE the songs they are singing. On the same principle as BIG BOOKS these charts can be used with a large group of children and can also be permanent reminders of the songs when displayed on the classroom wall.

Action Songs in the pack are:-

Hands on Shoulders
One Elephant (South America)
Sorida (Zimbabwe)
The Chimp & the Flute (South America)
Christmas Tree (by Douglas Coombes)

Book of Simple Songs and Circles (The)

Book of Simple Songs and Circles (The)


Price: 8.95

by John M. Feierabend

Another very useful collection of simple folk songs which can be sung in a circle with babies or at Reception and Lower KS1 (Scottish level A). The beauty of these songs is the relatively limited range of notes required for each one and the comparatively short duration of each. They are the sort of songs whcih young children will adore to repeat. There are no accompaniments printed, indeed, the songs are intended to be sung without instrumental support - but you can always add your own hand claps, stamps or slaps and add movement as the spirit moves you.
