Easy Harvest Song ideas

It goes (Blah) Means you can change colour or type of veg

 

Bumping up and down on the big Blah Tractor

Bumping up and down on the big Blah Tractor

Bumping up and down on the big Blah Tractor

Bringing in the Blah

 

Its great as the children love bumping up and down on their seats or jumping up and down

 

We sing this one to "the wheels on the bus"

The leaves on the trees turn orange and brown, orange and brown orange and brown.

The leaves on the trees turn orange and brown all through the town.

 

The leaves on the trees come tumbling down," " " etc

all through the town

 

The leaves on the ground go swish, swish swish etc

all through the town.

 

Hi, this is an idea I've 'borrowed' from our music co-ordinator.

why don't you sing...

Here we go round the 'chestnut tree', the chestnut tree

the 'chestnut tree'

all the conkers fell on me, on a cold and misty morning!

Each verse change the type of tree and fruit/nut and accompany this with associated picture or even paper Mache models!

 

Hi I have used this in the past.

To the tune of What shall we do with drunken sailor....

 

What have you brought to our harvest table (x3)

come put it on our table

I (or we) have bought a loaf of bread (X3)

to put on the harvest table

repeat for as many different objects as you like!

End with

We'd like to share our harvest table (x3)

(I can't remember the last line though, so over to you to make one up!!)

Have a harvest table ready and real or paintings of the objects sung about.

This can go on as long as you like!

 

I‘ve used a song very successfully which is sung to the tune of hear we go round the mulberry bush and is about Farmers!

 

This is the way we dig the soil (x3)

when we are being farmers

 

This is the way we plant the seeds

when we are being farmers

 

This is the way we water the ground

 

this is the way we harvest/ pick the crop

You can add verses if appropriate but I’ve found that was quite enough!

Harvest time

 

H is for harvest this lovely time of year

A is for apples all crunchy that we hear

R is for ripe autumn fruits – look and see

V is for vegetables we have for our tea

E is for every ear of corn that is grown

S is for scatter the seeds that are sown

T is for tractors that carry our crops

At this harvest time

T is to say thank you

I is to say I love you

M is for much love all around

E is for everyone we love in the world

At this harvest time

 

Bobbing up and down on my big red tractor

 

Bobbing up and down on my big red tractor

Bobbing up and down on my big red tractor

Bobbing up and down on my big red tractor

Bringing in the Beetroot (or choose what to bring in)

 

 

Bobbing up and down on my big green tractor

Bobbing up and down on my big green tractor

Bobbing up and down on my big green tractor

Bringing in the cabbages (or choose what to bring in)

 

Bobbing up and down on my big yellow tractor

Bobbing up and down on my big yellow tractor

Bobbing up and down on my big yellow tractor

Bringing in the sweet corn (or choose what to bring in)

You can choose what things to bring in or change the colours of the tractor..

Also can’t tell you the tune just make one up.

Chorus:

Oats, beans, and barley grow,

Oats, beans, and barley grow,

Can you or I or anyone know

How oats, and beans, and barley grow?

Verse 1:

First the farmer sows his seed,

Stands up tall and takes his ease,

He stamps his foot and claps his hands,

And turns around to view his lands.

Chorus:

Verse 2:

Next the farmer waters the seed,

Stands up tall and takes his ease,

He stamps his foot and claps his hands,

And turns around to view his lands.

Chorus:

Verse 3:

Next the farmer hoes the weeds,

Stands up tall and takes his ease,

He stamps his foot and claps his hands,

And turns around to view his lands.

Chorus:

Verse 4:

Last the farmer harvests his seed,

Stands up tall and takes his ease,

He stamps his foot and claps his hands,

And turns around to view his lands. Chorus:

We are singing what have you brought for harvest time. I think its the tune of skip to my Lou:

What have you brought for harvest time, what have you brought for harvest time, what have you brought for harvest time, to put on the harvest table?

Couldn't be easier!!!!

Then you make up verses of things you have brought:

I have brought a loaf of bread, I have brought a loaf of bread, I have brought a loaf of bread, to put on the harvest table

etc etc.

We are also singing cauliflowers fluffy, cabbages green - quite wordy but the tune is fab - very clicky and jazz hands!!! I'm not sure what book its from

Hope that's helpful

Just been sorting this out for our head who asked me if I knew the words to this song so here it is, sure you remember it, I loved it at school:

Cauliflowers fluffy and cabbages green,

 

Strawberries sweeter than any I’ve seen

 

Beetroot purple and onions white,

 

All grow steadily day and night

 

The apples are ripe, the plums are red,

 

Broad beans are sleeping in a blankety bed

 

 

 

 

Blackberries juicy and rhubarb sour,

 

Marrows that are fattening hour by hour.

Gooseberries hairy and lettuces fat

 

Radishes round and runner beans flat

 

The apples are ripe, the plums are red,

 

Broad beans are sleeping in a blankety bed

 

Orangey carrots and turnips cream,

 

Reddening tomatoes that used to be green,

 

brown potatoes in little heaps,

 

Down in the darkness where the celery sleeps

 

The apples are ripe, the plums are red,

 

Broad beans are sleeping in a blankety bed

This is our childrens favourite

FIVE LITTLE LEAVES

Five little leaves so bright and gay

were dancing around on the tree one day

Along came the wind swirling all around (WOOHOOOWOOHOO with hands to lips)

And one little leaf came tumbling down

etc

The children like to pretend to dancing around the tree then fall to the ground but the best bit is the howling wind they put their all into it!!! :o

sung to the tune of 5 little ducks went swimming one day
