Sing! Play! Learn! with Go Kid Music brings you 12 excellent songs that teachers and children will love! Based on popular Key Stage 2 topics, these catchy tunes enable primary class teachers to teach music while supporting learning across the whole curriculum.

Each song comes with an easy-to-follow teaching video with on-screen lyrics and actions, performance and backing audio, PDF lyrics for whiteboard display and teaching notes. In addition, many have optional percussion parts, which are also demonstrated on the videos, and there’s a selection of warm-ups and focus-builders to get everyone ready for singing!

Written with the generalist class teacher in mind, the accompanying notes are divided into three main sections:

SING – Straightforward, step-by-step instructions to help you teach the song from scratch;
