Classroom Considerations

  • Board games, relay race materials, and paper to write on are required to complete the lesson 
  • The change in lesson format, such as reading, singing, and watching a video, enhances pupils' engagement 
  • Extension activities and adaptation recommendations are listed 
  • The song does not reflect current, or popular, musical themes; preview it before conducting the lesson as it may not be to your liking
