Africa, Year 4

Discussion in 'Music' started by organist79, Feb 24, 2011.

  1. Due to the creative curriculum I need to find a musical with Africa based as the theme for Year 4. Does anyone have any ideas? Similar problem last year when form tutors wrote a script and I dealt with words and music, none of us wish to repeat this experience! Anything 'off the shelf' is fine as we can adapt, but I'm struggling to find anything to start with.

    Thanks

    How about Debbie Campbell's musical about African elephants:

    I don't know this particular one, but most of her works are tuneful, flexible and very suitable for Y4.

    I'll do it for £30 cheaper, but I have a feeling that the poster was asking about musicals.

    If you end up writing your own, perhaps you could base it on the Anansi stories? Some great animal characters and messages. There's lots of songs about animals and some songs on the Sing Up site would match the moral messages.
     
  8. LOL. You'll have to report yourself now, Bod99.
