In this session we used the tune of One finger, One thumb , to tell a well known traditional tale. My group were given The Gingerbread Man and we came up with the main points of the story for each verse and then added detail that had the right number of syllables to fit the tune. This was our song;

The old man was hungry x3

so his wife made gingerbread men.

one jumped out the oven x3

and then ran away.

They chased him down the road x3 

until they came to a river.

The fox said jump on x3

I’ll take you across the river. 

The fox had an idea x3

what’s going to happen, oh dear. 

The fox was very cheeky x3

he ate the ginger bread man.

This repeated refrain in this song means that the children are able to join in and are also more likely to remember the structure of the story.
