Does Everybody Know?
Does Everybody Know by Nick Perrin - age 5 to 9 yrs - KS1, KS2 (1m 54s)
Theme - Harvest, where food comes from
Content - Where does our food come from? The shops and supermarkets, of course! "Chuck it in the trolley, check it out! Stuff it in a bag, wheel it out!" Wait a minute... No! "It comes from the earth, that's a fact." A great song for Harvest time, or alongside any food-related topic.

First The Little Roots Grow by Nick Perrin - 5 to 7 yrs
Theme – change, growth, nature, sunshine, rain, plants, seasons, wheat, grain

This song comes from the short musical 'Harvest Hope'
