Thread Name: using folk songs with Key Stage 1
Subject: RE: using folk songs with Key Stage 1
Key stage one and two are classes in primary school..Ive just started teaching singing to this age group and most of my repertoire is folk, the problem was once I'd weeded all the sex and gambling songs out there was a lot less on me list! I'm using things like: The Fox and the Herrings head too...Keep your feet still geordie hinny, have you seen owt of my bonny lad, Ah you ah, Dol-li-a, the Keel row, byker hill, dance to your daddy, felton lonnin; When I first came to this land, the bonny pit laddie,
Rattlin Bog, Old woman of skin and bone, old dan tucker, a version of the 2 sisters I made...
Hoping some of these will work ok, Ive not worked with an age group this young before!
