PPJS036  MUNCHIN’ ‘N’ CRUNCHIN’ by JON WAKEFIELD (MUSIC & DRAWINGS ) & DAVE QUICK (SCIENCE) 7 songs FOOD CHAIN, CABBAGE SONG, OXYGEN, CATERPILLAR, SLUG, LADYBIRD LARVA & BLACKBIRD are all topic related and,with science notes providing a starting point, leave you firmly in control of the depth of the follow up. A novel way to teach the science requirements of primary schools.Dave has researched pupils' retention of science taught in conjunction with songs and discovered that, even after a gap of two years, the songs are remembered and the basics understood. Dave's research methods have been adopted by Ofsted.

The Times Educational Supplement Curriculum Special (16.11.01) said:

"Making science singable- and sometimes silly - can be a good way to cram disparate bits of the national curriculum into the narrow confines of the key stage 2 timetable. Munchin' 'n' Crunchin' is a set of seven new songs about food chains, life processes, photosynthesis and minibeasts into jaunty lyrics and catchy tunes. The songs have all been tried in the classroom and will be popular well beyond their Nottingham origins. A swaggering Ladybird Larva makes a rapacious rock 'n' roller and even a Never Hungry Cabbage pays grateful tribute to the sun in an elegant ballad."

Glen Cheney BFYC choral animateur and regional co-ordinator for Making Music said:

'This is a collection of seven songs aimed at primary age children. Their appeal is instant.What makes them unique is that they are structured around junior school science. Extensively trialled these songs provide a wonderful presentation of potentially dry and dusty concepts. The 'food Chain', 'Photosynthesis' and 'Oxygen' for example are offered as delicious 'snippets' of music guaranteed to bring these subjects to life. The predatory 'ladybird larva' is an audacious strut already loved by children.

'The writers, Jon Wakefield and Dave Quick, have worked extensively over the last twenty years presenting music and science and have written and produced a spectacular series of major productions in and around the Midlands. This publication comes with a CD which includes the complete songs and 'Backing tracks' as well as comprehensive science notes. They can be taught by teachers with little or no music training or by competent pianists using the full score. It is an enjoyable way of teaching and learning some basic science.

PPJS036 £14.90 (includes 14p VAT on the CD) The teachers' book has the music - easy piano with optional guitar chords, a CD with performances and backing tracks to all 7 songs and clearly explained science notes - you do not need any specialised science knowledge - with suggested experiments and activities.     BUY THIS MUSIC
