Hello there, eyteach! Welcome aboard and have fun.

There's one song I really like, about robots coming for dinner, but I can't find the words :o !! I'll have a good hunt round, but in the meantime, does anyone out there know the one I mean? Could you post the words? xD

here are the words for the robot song as I know them;

 

When the robots came to dinner,

They came on Christmas day,

They didn't like the turkey so they threw it all away.

They ate up all the knives and forks, and then they asked for more,

I've never had a Christmas day quite like that before!!

 

it's (kind of) to the tune of 'grand old duke of york' :o:D

thanks for the robot one, were doing past present & future christmas this year, so the robot one is great for the future.

 

one of our children's favorites is this one

 

a christmas tree,

a christmas tree,

a fairy on the top of the christmas tree,

a christmas tree,

a christmas tree,

a fairy on the top of the christmas tree

a star, a star,

a fairy on the top of the christmas tree,

a star, a star,

a fairy on the top of the christmas tree,

 

sung to the "pizza Hut" tune, kids pick it up so quick. you can do some actions to it as well.

 

another is a cover version of twinkle twinlke! (same tune etc)

 

twinkle, twinkle, chocolate bar

my dad drives a rusty car

pull the starter, push the choke,

off we go in a clould of smoke

 

not that christmasy but something different, and it gives the parents a giggle.

Our children always enjoy the following..

 

father christmas, father christmas

He got stuck, he got stuck

Climbing down the chimney Climbing down the chimney

wot bad luck wot bad luck

 

tune of frere jaques

 

we had a lot of discussion on santa and chimneys etc from this one today.

 

we do a mixture of makaton signs and made up ones to go with it to make it very visual to the children.

Have no idea how to explain the tune but these are the words of one of our favourites

 

When Santa got stuck up the chimney,

he began to shout

'You girls and boys wont get any toys, if you dont get me out.

My beard is black, there's soot in my sack, my nose is tingily too'

When Santa got stuck up the chimney,

'Atchoo, atchoo, atchoo'

:D

This is really popular at our pre school

 

"Toys on the Christmas Tree"

(Tune: This Old Man)

 

This little drum--on the tree

Santa put it there for me

With a boom-boom, rat-a-tat

Rummy-tummy-tum

Christmas Day is so much fun!

 

This little train--on the tree

Santa put it there for me

With a chug-chug, choo-choo

Rummy-tummy-tum

Christmas Day is so much fun!

 

This little doll--on the tree

Santa put it there for me

With a Ma-ma, Ma-ma

Rummy-tummy-tum

Christmas Day is so much fun!

Hi Pandamonium -

Hmm. The system shouldn't have prevented that upload - it was only 384KB.

 

Thanks for posting it on your own site, but if you find your host objecting to the amount of traffic it makes, let me know and I'll re-post it here so that it doesn't affect your site. :)

Thanks Steve, I had the same problem when I tried to post an essay - just words no clipart so couldn't have been too large! I even tried c+p to 3 separate documents to make it smaller but still wouldn't go on... :o

Found this but don't know if it's what you were thinking....

 

Show me the way to shine for Jesus

 

Though the shadows gather

There’s a light that shines forever.

From the bright beginning,

Till the day the earth stops its spinning.

And I feel that brightness

Rising up in me.

Making me the person

That I am meant to be.

 

Show me the way to shine for Jesus!

Let my love light up this Christmas.

Changing dark to light around us.

Oh sweet Jesus, shine in me!

(x2)

 

Sha lai lai etc

 

All the light and glory

Turned into the Christmas story.

See the darkened stable

Lit up with a newly born baby.

And the Son still shines now

Turning night to day.

Loving, healing, saving -

He makes me want to say:

 

Show me the way to shine for Jesus!

Let my love light up this Christmas

Changing dark to light around us

Oh sweet Jesus, shine in me

(x2)

 

Shai lai lai etc

Aw gee thanks!

I'm struggling to find simple songs for the Nativity play though... some of mone are really young and find it hard to learn too many words. I have lots of seaonal songs but none relating to the actual event!

We sing a song called the Shepherds{tune;Poor Mary is a - weeping}

 

1. The shepherds are a-watching, a-watching, a -watching

The shepherds are a-watching on the first Christmas night.

 

2. The shepherds saw an angel etc.

 

3. They went to find the baby etc.

 

4. They found Him in the stable etc.

 

5. He's God's gift to you and me etc.

 

The children find this easy to learn.

Sha la la....etc
