    A 'What If' Monster

    A 'What If' Monster  by Ruth Kenward & Richard Neil - 5 to 9 yrs  (1m 54s)
    _________________________________________

    Theme – anxiety, worry, confidence, strength
    _________________________________________

    Content - Anxiety is imagined as a ‘what if’ monster, confidence is a ‘what if’ buddy. The ‘what if’ monster puts doubt in our minds, and needs to be replaced with the ‘what if’ buddy of confidence that inspires us to have a go in life.  Confidence can be gained by going to people we trust for support and encouragement.  This unusual and quirky song is a brilliant tool to help young children understand anxiety – and they love shouting at the ‘what if’ monster to go away!  Excellent for PSHE.

    Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover

    'Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover' by Nairne Page - 7 to 13 yrs - KS2, KS3  (2m 37s)
    ______________________________

    Theme - encouraging tolerance and empathy, confronting prejudice, anti bullying

    ______________________________

    Content An excellent song for PHSE or junior assembly, 'Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover' is all about relationships, and being nice to each other, no matter where we come from or who we are.  The harmony parts also make this an interesting set piece for a junior choir, or soloist with backing group.  The ‘fills’ in the chorus are a good technical exercise for young singers, especially if done in 2 or even 3-part harmony.

    Don't Open The Box

    Don't Open The Box  by Caroline Picking & Edward Preston - 7 to 13 yrs - KS2, KS3  (2m 07s)
    _______________________________________________

    Theme - self control, keeping a lid on the ‘Pandora’s Box’ of destructive thoughts and emotions

    ______________________________

    Content Using the metaphor of Pandora’s Box, this song makes a strong statement about keeping nasty thoughts and words under control - for everyone’s benefit!  Obviously, it's important to share about our problems in order to process negative feelings in a controlled way, but the message of this song is that allowing anger and bitterness to spill over onto others causes those destructive emotions to spread and grow.  Punchy, assertive and with a dramatic edge, this song is strengthening and empowering for children to sing.

    Content - A great song for Y6 children, about to move on to new schools.  As they transition from KS2 to KS3, this song poses lots of questions:  'Ever question what your life is for?  What's beyond the next exciting door?'

The optional harmony part is particularly effective, and there is a great lift with the key change at the end.  Recommended for general singing or choirs, but as a unison song  it is also very suitable for PSHE and assembly purposes.
