The Ring songs

Have a listen to 4M learning the lyrics and the rhythm of Dig Deep Dig Deep – chanting the lyrics (mp3)

Here is our first attempt at singing it Our first attempt at singing Dig Deep (mp3)

Here is the next song we are going to learn- Why move so fast? Soo taught it to me today. It really struck a chord with me personally. I had a really busy day and was getting grumpy about all the things I had to do. Listening to this lovely tune really made me feel calm and the words made perfect sense! Please listen to the piano play the chorus on the link below and tell me how it makes you feel!

Link to the piano playing “Why move so fast”

Another new song for us! Lovely samba rhythm that will get you dancing. Have a listen to Pete Churchill as he sings it.
“Don’t forget tomorrow!” – what do you think?

This is 4S singing “Don’t Forget tomorrow” after just a quick go at learning it. They loved the rhymes!
"Don”t forget tomorrow!" (mp3)

Have a listen to this song – “Listen to the chorus” It is being sung by a group of teachers. I bet it will sound much better when yr 4 are singing it!Listen to the chorus (mp3)

Seize the day (mp3)

    • What a kind thing to say! I think the children sound better than teachers!

  15. I wish all of us could be in the choir because we all have lovely voices and I can prove that to You because loads of people have commented on the blog and saying that our voices sound like an angel. Also you are a very good teacher miss schnieder!

    • Rhodie why don’t you talk to the person who runs choir? Maybe they will let you join? If it is full up maybe we could start another singing group. Do you think many people would like to join?

    • I was showing him how to do the sad and smiley face and then i accidently sent it but im not sure why the smiley face isnt there because rhodie showed me how to do it and i was showing joshua how to do it in the lesson because he kept asking me to show him.

      Ive got a question how do you turn it to a smiley and sad face when we do this 🙂 and 🙁 because im not sure why it dosent pop up when were typing the actual messege are u the one who is changing them into smiley faces and sad faces.

    • Hi Christabel – it is a piece of code that changes the symbols into a smiley face – not me! Will you do me a favour? Will you show your comment to Mrs Schofield? Mrs Schofield is doing some research about children and ICT. I am sure she would be interested in reading what you wrote. You may be interested in a programme called scratch that she is looking at.

  16. I cant stop making comments its so FUNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  17. wwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooowwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww i like these songs

  18. Mauritania officially banned slavery in 1981. The government has denied accusations that it is still being practised.

    In the Middle Ages Mauritania was the cradle of the Almoravid movement, which spread Islam throughout the region and for a while controlled the Islamic part of Spain.

    Under former President Maaouiya Ould Sid Ahmed Taya, Mauritania was an ally of the US in its “war on terror”. American special forces were despatched to train Mauritanian troops.
    European traders began to show interest in Mauritania in the 15th century. France gained control of the coastal region in 1817, and in 1904 a formal French protectorate was extended over the territory.

    • It is very easy you type a colon : then a dash – and then a bracket ) The computer turns this into a smily face 🙂 See?!

    • Thats cool how you do those smiley faces. You use those smiley faces a lot Miss Schneider. I want to learn how to do those smiley faces too!!!

    • 🙂 🙁
      Is this the way to do the smiley face and sad face?
      I don’t think that this is right ?!

    • How come the smiley face appeared like that!
      When I done it, it just looked like two eyes sideways and the nose sideways and the mouth sideways!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • like this =;;;;—- I cant do it

  35. Year 4,

    I was lucky enough to go to the Royal Albert Hall last year to listen to the choir singing ‘Dig Deep’. I think it is a very powerful song, and I cannot wait to hear you raise the roof with it,

    Miss McGrath

  36. I thought I would take a moment to acknowledge the hard work that has been put into this blog by all year 4 children! This project is very exciting and it is great to know the children are enjoying it. Well done year 4 for showing your parents the blog. Thank you to all parent’s for showing your support. There is a lot more to look forward to.

    Miss Sedgwick 🙂

    Plamen`s mum

    • Hello Plamen’s Mum!
      Thank you for your encouraging comments!

  39. WOW! I loved the tow songs that year 4 sang. I didn’nt know we were so good at singing and I can’t wait till I learn morer songs. Thank you for teaching us those songs Mrs Schneider.

    • You are very welcome Chantelle. It is a pleasure teaching you 🙂

  40. once my mum got very angery and then she listened to whey move so fast and it carmed her down a lot and now shes got it on her mp3 player.

    • I know, it really gets into your brain! Some people call that an ear worm!

  41. I certainly didn’t have this much fun when I was in primary school. This looks like an excellent way for pupils to come together and learn to sing. I hope to hear great improvements in the singing as you develop the singing.
