September 1666 tells the story of the Great Fire of London. It is gentle and has a rousing chorus with signs and actions that both enhance learning of the song, as well as extending vocabulary and understanding.
The new split-screen film of this song (featuring Al Start) includes the lyrics under the signing, a simple ukulele part with chord diagrams onscreen, and a simple xylophone part. This enables the group/class to be split into four groups and to play and sing as an ensemble. Ideal for late KS1 and early KS2.
Purchasing this song pack buys the rights to perform this song in public, and supports Go Kid Music.
“Hello, I'm Al. I started Go Kid Music in 2015 because I believe we need more great age-appropriate songs for children and their families. I used to be a Play Coordinator for the local authority, lecture at Brighton University and have trained in play, creative learning and child development. I studied music at Brighton Institute of Modern Music in 2003 and gained a distinction in Songwriting & Modern Composition. I have toured extensively and produce music and events for families. I teach singing and ukulele in schools where I try out all the songs in the club so you know they will go down a storm with your kids!"
