Song teaching videos
These videos are a ground breaking approach to teaching songs in the classroom. Jess is ‘live’ with her guitar and will get your children singing enthusiastically in less than 15 minutes!
The animations are a colourful and clever take on the issue in hand. They illustrate concepts covered in Jess’ songs through the use of original stories and charming imagery.
With artwork from 60 children in each one, the karaoke videos reward repeat viewings with the continual emergence of amusing detail. The videos conclude each lesson, but are also ideal for filling a spare 5 minutes at the end of the day.
These arrangements are great for school assemblies or concerts and can be played either by the school pianist or a competent student. As guitar chords are provided, the songs can also be played on the instrument that Jess originally wrote them on.
Each lesson supports KS2 singing and sustainability alongside one more curriculum area through a dynamic cross-curricular approach. With English and Scottish curriculum references, all the media elements are brought together into a cohesive plan for learning.
