we have just done an assembly with Farmer Duck as the piece of 'drama', we are a catholic school so sang two hymns and a song called 'Together' some of the lyrics are 'when we work together the job gets done, when we move together it keeps us strong' 'when we sing together the beat goes on, when we play together it's so much fun' 'what we do together we do as one' I can't tell you the name of the CD, I think it's from an assembly type CD with another song on it called 'Be careful little eyes'. someone might be able recognise it.

I did Farmer Duck as an assembly with my Reception class in about 2000!!!.... so am now racking my brains to think....

I remember adapting a song called 'Keep on dancing' and changing the words. Can't help you with the original song and tune, but from memory it went something like...

Keep on working, keep on working, keep on singing this song (x2)

Clap your hands and stamp your feet

Saw that wood to the beat

Saw that wood, saw that wood on singing this song

 

Keep on working, keep on working, keep on singing this song (x2)

Clap your hands and stamp your feet

Wash those dishes to the beat

Wash those dishes, saw that wood

Keep on singing this song

 

Groups of children mimed the different actions and I think we had a couple more verses in there, do the ironing, dig the fields...

this was at the end of our assembly after they had got rid of the farmer :o

 

I think then we had a song/rhyme for each of the groups of animals - baa baa blacksheep, higgledy piggledy my black hen, cant remember what we did for cows tho and i remember I added in pigs as well - I'm thinking it was mabe this little piggy went to market, as the duck fetced them....

 

 

Ok brain has given up under the strain now.... if it helps great, if not then just ignore me - most people do xD

We have that CD at our school and the children love it - its produced by "Out of the ark" should have attached the link to the correct publication here if needed!

I know you did your assembly along time ago but I really like the sound of it and wondered how you did it in the end. Could you share this with me if you do not mind as am interested myself to use this for an end of year assembly for Reception. I have never done an assembly before, am a NQT so a bit nervous!

No useful song suggestions, but wanted to ask you "how goes the work?"

 

When my dd2 was born, I read that book a lot to my dd1 (18 months) while I was breastfeeding. I think my husband and I still know it off my heart, and "How goes teh work?" as become a family catch phrase.
