WRITING & GRAMMAR SONGS

Word Space

I'm sitting calmly on my seat,
As that will help to keep it neat.
My feet are flat upon the floor,
I’m sitting straight, hold on, there’s more!


Pinch your pencil with your thumb and pointer finger
Then rest it gently on your middle finger.


Always start a sentence with a capital letter.
A finger space between each word will look a lot better.
Read what you have written, starting from the top
And don’t forget to end it all with a full stop.


Well I’ve got something good to say!
I’m gonna write it down today
I’ll use my sounds to help me spell
So that my writing turns out well


Thinking of the words can make you frown
So say it out loud before you write it down


Always start a sentence with a capital letter.
A finger space between each word will look a lot better.
Read what you have written, starting from the top
And don’t forget to end it all with a full stop.


A finger space between each word
Will help to stop it looking blurred.
I sit my letters on the line,
So I feel proud this work is mine!


Make your letters sit neatly on the line,
Leave a space between each word so that it looks just fine!


Always start a sentence with a capital letter.
A finger space between each word will look a lot better.
Read what you have written, starting from the top
And don’t forget to end it all with a full stop.

Nouns

A noun is a naming word.
Three types you should know:
Collective, common and proper nouns.
So come on let’s go.

Which one needs capitals?
Tell me, do you know?
Let’s sing this song together 
And the answer may show.

Common nouns are the general names 
Like man, dog or clock.
Collective nouns name groups of things 
Like pride, herd or flock.
Proper nouns are particular people, 
Places or things
Like Bethany or Mister, London or Thames

I’m the capital of England, 
The home of Big Ben, 
My Prime Minister lives 
At Number Ten.

My proper noun? London.

I’m the Head Teacher,

By working together 
We create a good school.
What’s my noun? Mrs Taylor.

A noun is a naming word.
Three types you should know:
Collective, common and proper nouns.
So come on let’s go.

When all of my sheep friends 
Group together,

Three types you should know:
Collective, common and proper nouns.
So come on let’s go-o-o.

Which one needs capitals?
Tell me, do you know?
Let’s sing this song together 
And the answer may show.

 

Do it, be it

We’re gonna get a good reaction,
Sing a song of satisfaction.
So get your vocab strong,
And put your grammar head on.


There are so many types of words,
And today we’re tackling the verbs.
Have you seen, have you been, have you heard
That a verb is a doing word?
Yes, a verb is a doing word.

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!

Do it, be it, c’mon get ready for adventure.
Verb is the word and we’re gonna make it all make sense.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
The present, the past, the future, ready for adventure,
Ev’ry subject needs a verb, and ev’ry verb needs a tense.

We sing the Chorus for fun,
After we sang Verse One.
And we will sing it again,
But we won’t tell when, no!


We sing the Chorus for fun,
After we sang Verse One.
And we will sing it again,
But we won’t tell when.


The verbs will help us get things done,
Like to sing, jump, dance and run.
Time to look at the adverbs now:
They tell us the when, and the where, and the how.

Like it’s the sweetest song you’ve ever heard,
Today we’ll fly lightly with the birds.
From the sky you’ll hear us sing,
Adverbs’ll give a sentence bling!
Adverbs’ll give a sentence bling!


Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!


Do it, be it, c’mon get ready for adventure.
Verb is the word and we’re gonna make it all make sense.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
The present, the past, the future, ready for adventure,
Ev’ry subject needs a verb, and ev’ry verb needs a tense.

Don’t be fooled into thinking that it’s all nailed down, 
With a few extra letters, a verb becomes a noun.
Move into movement with a m-e-n-t;
Invent into invention with an i-o-n, see?

Sometimes a word can be a verb and noun at the same time,
It takes a bit of spotting, but here’s a handy rhyme:
Milk a dairy cow and milk’s a ‘doing’ word,
Drink the milk and it becomes a noun and not a verb. (x2) 


Do it, be it, c’mon get ready for adventure.
Verb is the word and we’re gonna make it all make sense.
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah!
The present, the past, the future, ready for adventure,
Ev’ry subject needs a verb, and ev’ry verb needs a tense.


We sing the Chorus for fun,
After we sang Verse One.
But we won’t sing it again,
‘Cause we’re at the end. Oh!

Rockstar

 

There's a girl in the backyard bangin' on her drum,
Sittin' in a junk pile laughing at the sun,
Singin': 'ah, ha, ha, I just wanna be a rockstar.'

There's a boy in the backseat singin' to the song
Playin' on the radio, knowing he's the one,
Singin': 'ah, ha, ha, I just wanna be a rockstar.'
Singin': 'ah, ha, ha, I was born to be a rockstar.'

There's a girl in the tree top looking at the stars,
Waiting for a touchdown comin' in from Mars,
Thinkin': 'is there anybody out there?'

There's a boy thinkin' of her playin' his guitar,
Searching for the answer buried in his heart,
Thinkin': 'ah, ha, ha, is there anybody out there?'
Singin': 'ah, ha, ha, is there anybody out there?'

If there's a meaning can you show me a sign?
The more I look it just gets harder to find.
The world is spinnin' and I wanna know why.

And we're all getting older, wishing we were young, 
Hanging on the memory of what we could become,
Singin': 'ah, ha, ha, I was born to be a rockstar'.
Singin': 'ah, ha, ha, I just wanna be a rockstar'.
Singin': 'ah, ha, ha, I was born to be a rockstar'.

 

One moment 

If you are locked out I will bring the key 
If you are lonely come and stand by me 

Cos the room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light 
And the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side 

This is One moment 
(This is) One people 
(This is) One lifetime 
(This is) One song (x2)
 

If you feel different we will take your hand 
If you feel frightened come and join the band! 

Cos the room keeps getting brighter as we shine a light 
And the world keeps getting kinder singing out side by side:

This is One moment 
(This is) One people 
(This is) One lifetime 
(This is) One song (x2)
 

Every heartbeat drums together and fills up with pride 
And we’re growing strong together, singing out side by side: 

This is One moment 
(This is) One people 
(This is) One lifetime
(This is) One song
 

This is One moment (The room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light)
(This is) One people 
(This is) One lifetime (And the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side)
(This is) One song (x 2)
 

The room keeps getting brighter as you shine a light 
And the world keeps getting kinder with you by my side.
