Mr Tate's a teacher (song)

Here's another song from our coursebooks that my pupils found catchy. It's about Mr and Mrs Tate:
Mr Tate's a teacher.
He teaches all the long.
He reads and writes 
And sometimes shouts
And then he sings this song!

I'm a super teacher!
I teach all day long.
I read and write
And sometimes shout
And then I sing this song!

Mrs Tate's an artist.
She draws all day long.
She draws and paints
And cleans her brush
And then she sings this song!

I'm a super artist.
I draw all day long.
I draw and paint
And clean my brush
And then I sing this song!

Doctor, doctor (song)

This rock-like song is a way of revising the days of the week and different ailments. Here you can see how the class VI4 sang it in 2007.

Here are the lyrics to sing along:

On Monday, I had earache.
On Tuesday, I had a sore throat.
On Wednesday, I came to see you again
And you gave me a doctor's note.

Doctor, doctor, I feel bad,
But I haven't got a cold, I haven't got 'flu.
Doctor, doctor, help me, please -
I'm so in love with you...

On Thursday, I had a headache.
You gave me a little blue pill.
On Friday, I had a temperature
But you told me I wasn't ill.

Doctor, doctor...

Five Fat Sausages (song)

One of the funniest songs and fingerplays for young learners of English is definitely 'Five Fat Sausages.' It's full of loud bangs that nobody can resist making. Here is how class III1 performed the song in June 2007.

Cake Day 2007

Since the end of another school year was getting near, we decided to make the best of it and do something different. The pupils of my class VI2 agreed to have a Cake Day. They brought home made cakes to try and recipes to share. It was a fun day to remember.

And, the perfect song to back up all this was 'Sausages with Ice-cream.' 
Here are the lyrics:

I like toast with cheese.
Katy likes chips with peas.
Peter puts pepper on his baked beans.
Edward likes raspberries
And Jessica loves strawberries,
But John likes sausages with ice-cream.

I like sticky toffee.
Donna likes a cup of coffee.
Daniel likes a nice fruit salad, it seems.
Wendy loves apple pie,
But nobody can tell us why
John likes sausages with ice-cream.
