Element Song Lyrics

Air

Sunrise and sunset on the horizon,

Colours of a new day,

The sun is shining,

The moon is hiding in the sky,

And when the sun is gone,

It will come out and play with the stars.

I will fly into the sky,

Over mountains and rainbows and oceans,

And when I am done,

I will swoop back down to earth like a bird, hey!

X2

Air is something we breathe and we should take more care for it,

Air is the reason we are here today, hey!

Wings beat and birds fly,

Up into the distant sky,

Clouds are shape shifters,

They can be whatever they want.

X6 diminuendo

Sunrise and sunset

Earth

Mushrooms and flowers deep in the soil,

Leaves on a new tree,

The bees are buzzing,

The lichen is hiding on a branch,

And when then wind has gone,

It will come out and play with the leaves.

I will dig into the ground,

Under roots and fossils and crystals,

And when I am done,

I will climb back up to earth like a mole, hey!

X2

Earth is where we live and we should take more care for it,

Earth is the reason we are here today, hey!

Leaves fall and trees grow,

Up into the canopy,

Flowers collect water,

And they grow towards the sun.

Mushrooms and flowers

Water

Tide in and tide out bringing in a new day,

Drawing it closer,

To the sea bay,

The fish are waiting in the weeds,

When the current has gone,

They will come out and play with the rays.

I will dive into the sea,

Close to rivers and rapids and rock pools,

And when I am done,

I will pop back up through ice like a seal, hey!

X2

Water is something we drink and we should take more care for it,

Water is the reason we are here today, hey!

Fish swim and waves crash,

Out across the deep blue sea,

Crabs are on the shore,

They can pinch whenever they want.

X6 diminuendo

Tide in and tide out

Y5 Barnstaple Museum Extension Project

Posted in Art, History

We worked with Tax Pollard in the classroom today making our tiles inspired by our visit to Barnstaple and the museum last week.  Some of us wanted to work by ourselves and some of us in groups. We are very happy with what we have made with Taz and look forward to seeing our ideas incorporated in to the finished tiles that are going to be right outside the new extension of Barnstaple Museum.  What an amazing project to be part of!
