Spring Song

One dainty daffodil makes its way through

Up pops another one and that makes two.

Two dainty daffodils nodding by a tree

Up pops another one and that makes three

Three dainty daffodils, what a golden score,

Up pops another one and that makes four

Four dainty daffodils, glad to be alive

Up pops another one and that makes five.

Five dainty daffodils, smiling at the sun

Someone comes and picks a bunch

Now there are none!

My class is doing an assembly in a couple of weeks on the theme of Spring, lots of lovely bits planned... just looking for a spring song. Does anyone know a good one? Thank you!

Five yellow daffodils standing in a row

The flower on the top and a stem down below.

Along came the gardener on a bright sunny day,

She picked a yellow daffodil and took it right away.

 

And so on to zero! We sing it to the tune of 5 little ducks went swimming one day.

Very nice :o

 

Is that a song or a rhyme Cait?

 

 

It's actually a rhyme that my Mum taught me when I was in her Nursery class many moons ago! (almost half a century)

 

but there's no reason you couldn't make up some sort of tune

 

quick edit to add that she learned it from HER Mum's nursery class!!!

We did our assembly today and used the 5 yellow daffodils one - it worked really well, so thank you Rosetta! Cait, I'm going to read yours to the children too. I'd love to hear the rest of yours, killowengirl!

I'm a spring chicken!

I'm yellow and small.

My feathers are fluffy and they're keeping me warm.

My legs are not long, so I'll never be tall,

But I'm a real spring chicken and I'm having a ball!

(Chicken I'm a chicken and I'm a having a ball!)

 

we just sing this bit of the song (which is the chorus) i expect if you look on youtube you could get the tune.

 

we also sing (a bit more summery): tune- she'll be coming round the mountain
