Progress Across The School

YEAR 1

Term 1

Beside the Seaside

 

Singing & Performing:

Sing and play with expression, from memory.

Composing:

Create simple rhythmic patterns, melodies and accompaniments.

Manipulate sounds, music and structures to explore changes.

Kanzi Class

 

Look at what we have been up to:

 

Term 1:

Week 1 - WALT: use my voice to speak, sing and chant.

We looked at learning songs together. We can sing Boom Chikka Boom now and the Penquin Song!

 

 

Week 2 - WALT: join in with familiar and unfamiliar songs.

We can sing the 'Rock Pool Song' and we had fun singing it slowly and then getting faster. We enjoyed making up our own actions.

 

Week 3 - WALT: sing with expression and from memory.

We looked at the lyrics of the song ‘I do like to be beside the seaside’.  We discussed what a prom is (short for promenade) and that when this song was written (1907) it was usual for there to be brass bands playing music. We then learnt the song. It was great fun. Have a go yourself... 'I do like to be beside the seaside song'. 

 

Week 4 - WALT:  adapt the lyrics of a song to make it more modern.

We made up our own modern version of the song (see below). Can you try and sing our version at home to your grown up?

 

Oh! I do like to eat beside the seaside!

I do like to eat beside the sea!

I do like to eat up all the fish and chips!

Into my tum tum,

“Tiddely-yum-yum yum!”

 

Oh! I do like to dive into the water!

I do like to dive into the sea!

I do like to surf into the big wet waves!

Make a splish splash splosh,

“Tiddely- splish splash splosh!’

 

So just let us be beside the seaside!

I’ll be with Kanzi Class with glee

And there’s lots of friends beside,

I should like to be beside,

Beside the seaside,

Beside the sea!

 

Week 5 - WALT:  use theme vocabulary to create new lyrics for a song.

We decided to create a new version of 'Old MacDonald had a farm' and make it about the seaside.

 

Week 6 -

WALT: accompany singing with untuned percussion.

 

We discussed which songs have been our favourite to learn this term and voted to perform ‘Oh I do like to be beside the seaside’. We learnt that accompanying singing with an instrument does not always mean playing every single note! Some of us played along to the pulse of the song and some of us played a note/beat at the end of each line. We split into two groups and performed to half of the class.

I do like to be beside the sea!

I do like to run in the sand, sand, sand!

Where the children play,

And jump in the waves!

 

So just let me be beside the seaside!

Lots of ice cream for me

And there’s lots of shells to collect,

I should like to be beside,

Beside the seaside,

Beside the sea!
