Approaches:
year 4 class, at Rawmarsh Ashwood Primary School, adapted the traditional song 'Alouette', having learnt parts of the body and some adjectives. We looked at the structure of the song and how it repeated, I showed them an example of an adapted song version, with a different animal, different parts of the body and one different verb. With a copy of this and a vocabulary sheet to help they then wrote their own song.

Rationale:
We sang a few different versions of the song and recorded them, which they all really enjoyed.

Outcomes:
They wrote their own song

Topics or themes:

Grammar:

Strategies:

How much time required:
It took the children 2 lessons (1 hr) to write their song, then another half hour lesson to record them.
