The song is based on the book ‘There’s a Boy in the Girls’ Bathroom’ by Louis Sachar and has an up tempo beat with catchy lyrics that are easy to learn.
As with all Sing a Book songs, it draw inferences, such as inferring a character’s feeling, thoughts and motives from their actions, which is reflected in the lyrics. The song requires no musical experience to teach, as the bundle includes the vocals, instrumental and lyrics.
The lesson plan demonstrates how the song can be used as a guided reading tool, while giving the pupils an opportunity to learn it within a structured and curriculum-led learning environment.
The song gives pupils a platform to showcase their comprehension of the book and the main characters, through a class assembly or end of term production, while developing their speaking and listening skills.
Ideas are provided to illustrate how the song support drama activities. Class performances gives pupils an opportunity to improvise, devise and script drama for one another and a range of audiences, as well as to rehearse, refine, share and respond thoughtfully to drama and theatre performances (National Curriculum in English: primary curriculum).
