Musical Story: The Scarecrow’s Wedding

This week’s Musical Story is The Scarecrow’s Wedding by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Emmeline is going to read the very eventful story of Betty and Harry and at the end of the story is going to play the ‘Wedding March’ by Mendelssohn. This is a very popular piece of music for weddings and we are sure you will recognise it. If you would like to listen to the music again after the story here is a link for it.

Music With Emmeline – Wednesday 1st July

Here are today’s musical activities from Emmeline.

Soundscape: A Monkey Swinging Through The Trees

Today’s soundscape is going to be imagining you are a monkey swinging through the trees. We have provided this picture of a monkey swinging through the jungle as a visual stimulus but perhaps you would like to close your eyes and imagine you are a monkey up in the trees. Do you have anything at home that reminds you of the jungle or monkeys?

Please relax, listen to the music, look at the picture, maybe you are a cheeky monkey up in the trees with the wind blowing past you as you swing around!

Someone You Loved: Part 2 – Verse 1

Today we will be learning the second Verse of Someone You Loved. Here are the words.

I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to turn to
This all or nothing way of loving got me sleeping without you
Now, I need somebody to know
Somebody to heal
Somebody to have
Just to know how it feels
It’s easy to say but it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you helped me escape.

Music With Emmeline – Tuesday 30th June

Here are today’s musical activities from Emmeline.

Favourite Song: Sleeping Bunnies

Today’s song is Sleeping bunnies. This is such a popular song with many of the pupils we work with. If you are able to you could pretend to be asleep and wait in anticipation of when the music will change and jump awake to be a hopping bunny! You could also make music along with the song, gentle calming music with any instruments you have for when the bunny is sleeping and then much more excitable music when the bunnies are awake!

Someone You Loved: Part 2 – Verse 1

Today we will be singing and signing the first verse of Someone You Loved. The words are;

I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to save me
This all or nothing really got a way of driving me crazy
I need somebody to heal
Somebody to know
Somebody to have
Somebody to hold
It’s easy to say
But it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you numbed all the pain.
to being someone you loved.
