Lyrics sample

First the little roots grow,

Then the baby shoots grow,

Then the green stalks, strong and tall.

Next the golden ears show,

Swaying as the wind blows.

Soon it’s time to cut them all.

Sunshine, showers of rain.

See how nature does it again!


‘First The Little Roots Grow’ is from the KS1 musical ‘The Little Red Hen’, which features in ‘Bumper Harvest
