Emmerdale and Dr Who star praises Y1's version of his 60's hit!

 

 

Frazier Hines (famous as "Joe Sugden" in Emmerdale and "Jamie" in Dr Who) has had kind words to say on twitter about Y1's version of his 60's classic Punch and Judy Man.

You can see the exchange below and listen to the track. :-)

Greatest Show in the Galaxy

 

Now welcome folks, I'm sure you'd like to know,

We're at the start of one big circus show.

There are acts that are cool and acts that amaze.

Some acts are scary and some acts will daze.

Acts of all kinds, you can count on that, from folks that fly to disappearing acts.

There are lots of surprises for the family at the Greatest Show in the Galaxy!

So many strange surprises, I'm prepared to bet, whatever you've seen before,

… you ain't seen nothing yet!

 

Punch and Judy Man

 

I heard the sound of children's laughter fill the air
And as I joined their happy crowd that gathered there
My head began to spin just like a carousel
Ol' Punch and Judy Man that weaved his magic spell

Chorus:
Hey Punch and Judy Man
The greatest show on earth
Roll up, roll up my friends, 
You'll get your money's worth
He'll make you laugh and sing 
And chase you blues away
Oh help me if you can
Oh Punch and Judy Man

He took us on a trip across the magic sea
To great adventures in a world of fantasy
Far from the busy streets to never-never-land
Just by the simple waving of his clever hand

Chorus

So if you need someone to tell your troubles to
Just find that little man, that's all you have to do
He was the one who always seemed to understand
So come on, bring your troubles
To the Punch and Judy Man

 

Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite!

The Beatles

 

For the benefit of Mr. Kite
There will be a show tonight on trampoline
The Hendersons will all be there
Late of Pablo Fanques Fair-what a scene
Over men and horses hoops and garters
Lastly through a hogshead of real fire!
In this way Mr. K. will challenge the world!

 

The celebrated Mr. K.
Performs his feat on Saturday at Bishops Gate
The Hendersons will dance and sing
As Mr. Kite fly's through the ring don't be late
Messrs. K and H. assure the public
Their production will be second to none
And of course Henry The Horse dances the waltz!

 

The band begins at ten to six
When Mr. K. performs his tricks without a sound
And Mr. H. will demonstrate
Ten summer sets he'll undertake on solid ground
Having been some days in preparation
A splendid time is guaranteed for all
And tonight Mr. Kite is topping the bill!

 

The animals went in two by two

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The animals went in two by two

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The animals went in two by two

The elephant and the kangaroo

And they all went into the ark

For to get out of the rain.

The animals went in three by three

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The animals went in three by three

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The animals went in three by three

The wasp, the ant and the bumblebee

And they all went into the ark

For to get out of the rain.

The animals went in four by four

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The animals went in four by four

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The animals went in four by four

The great hippopotamus stuck in the door

And they all went into the ark

For to get out of the rain.

The animals went in five by five

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The animals went in five by five

Hoorah! Hoorah!

The animals went in five by five

By hunting each other they kept alive

And they all went into the ark

For to get out of the rain.

The animals went in six by six

 

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
Old Mother Nature's recipes
That brings the bare necessities of life

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the trees
To make some honey just for me
When you look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance at them fancy ants
And then maybe, well, try a few
The bare necessities of life will come to you

Looking for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Wherever I wander, wherever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the trees
Make some honey just for me
You look under the rocks and plants
And take a glance, fancy ants
Maybe try yourself a few
The bare necessities of life will come to you

Look for the bare necessities
The simple bare necessities
Forget about your worries and your strife
I mean the bare necessities
That's why a bear can rest at ease
With just the bare necessities of life

Wherever I wander, whenever I roam
I couldn't be fonder of my big home
The bees are buzzin' in the trees
To make some honey just for me
When you look under the rocks and plants
And take glance at the fancy ants
And maybe try a few, haha, try one
The bare necessities of life
They'll come to you
They have come to you

 

Song from The Jungle Book

Now I'm the king of the swingers

Oh, the jungle VIP

I've reached the top and had to stop

And that's what botherin' me

I wanna be a man, mancub

And stroll right into town

And be just like the other men

I'm tired of monkeyin' around!

Oh, oobee doo

I wanna be like you

I wanna walk like you

Talk like you, too

You'll see it's true

An ape like me

Can learn to be human too

 

Now don't try to kid me, mancub

I made a deal with you

What I desire is man's red fire

To make my dream come true

Give me the secret, mancub

Clue me what to do

Give me the power of man's red flower

So I can be like you

You!

I wanna be like you

I wanna talk like you

Walk like you, too

You'll see it's true

Someone like me

Can learn to be

Like someone like me

Can learn to be

Like someone like you

Can learn to be

Like someone like me!

 

To Bombay
A traveling circus came
They brought an intelligent elephant
And Nellie was her name
One dark night
She slipped her iron chain
And off she ran to Hindustan
And was never seen again

Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk
And said goodbye to the circus
Off she went with a trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump
Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk
And trundled back to the jungle
Off she went with a trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump

Night by night
She danced to the circus band
When Nellie was leading the big parade
She looked so proud and grand
No more tricks
For Nellie to perform
They taught her how to take a bow
And she took the crowd by storm

Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk
And said goodbye to the circus
Off she went with a trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump
Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk
And trundled back to the jungle
Off she went with a trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump

The head of the herd was calling
Far, far away
They met one night in the silver light
On the road to Mandalay
Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk
And said goodbye to the circus
Off she went with a trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump
Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk
And trundled back to the jungle
Off she went with a trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump

Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk
And said goodbye to the circus
Off she went with a trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump
Nellie the Elephant packed her trunk
And trundled back to the jungle
Off she went with a trumpety-trump
Trump, trump, trump

Y1 Radio Stars!

 

On Wednesday 26th April, some of our Y1 children were interviewed by BBC Radio. They talked about reading to Meg the Pets As Therapy dog, and how much they enjoyed it! You can listen below to an MP3 of the show that went out across the nation at breakfast! smiley

Commonwealth Week 

13th March 2017

We studied Jamaica as part of Commonwealth week- thank you to all the children  who brought in homework and related objects. We had lots of fun baking red velvet cakes, learning about geography and culture- and especially enjoyed singing some reggae in worship!

Science!

 

As part of our science topic, we are testing materials. The children made houses for the three little pigs out of metal, carpet, wool, paper, plastic and straw. We later discovered that we needed to follow it up with a fairer test!

We had a splendiferousphizz-wizzing and wondercrump (© Roald Dahl) time on World Book Day on Friday 3rd March at Tickhill St Mary’s C of E Primary School. In Year One, as well as the usual dressing-up as book characters, all of our activities were inspired by our love of books.

 

During Maths the children undertook timed challenges such as speed story sequencing, words per minute, pages in 5 minutes and a book scavenger hunt. “I found some porridge, a train and a witch. Even though we didn’t find everything, it was really fun,” remarked Millie E. Next, in Literacy, we planned a story around the character that we had dressed up as. Charlie K, attired all in Lincoln green, explained his plot: “Robin Hood is out for revenge against the Sheriff of Nottingham. The Sheriff has been very mean again!” Snow White (Eve C) had this to add about her story- “They are building a house for all of the Dwarfs’ bumblebee toys. But the Big Bad Wolf is trying to eat them!”

 

After lunch, we had a parade for all the school to show their clever costumes to each other. Daisy L literally jumped for joy when she won a book token for her Harlequin costume!

School CD Recording


I am proud to announce that our school has booked a very exciting project – we are recording our own CD! We are having a professional mobile recording studio visit our school on Tuesday 29 November. Your child will be involved in the CD recording, either singing songs from the school Christmas production or Christmas-themed music with the school choir.

The CDs are going to be sold by the school at £7.99 each and profits raised will go towards further developing our music provision. The CDs are limited editions; they can’t be bought in the shops, only from school and will be distributed strictly on a ‘first come first served’ basis. As well as a great memento for the children to own their own CD, we are sure you will enjoy it too, and it will also make a great present for loved ones - imagine their smile as they unwrap the unique gift of your children’s own CD!


To order your CD copies, please download and fill out the PDF below and return it to school by Tuesday 29th November.

Autumn term 2 Overview

On Tuesday October the 11th, we had a special visit from Meg the PAT dog. We learned that PAT stands for Pets As Therapy, and that only special animals with calm and gentle natures are allowed to be PAT animals. They help children and adults by visiting them and playing with them. We read to Meg every Tuesday, and we really look forward to seeing her!

 

We also learned what you need to do to look after her, and have written all about this in literacy.
