Who Lives In My Garden? is a delightful collection of ten poems or songs featuring minibeasts and garden creatures. It appeals to young children and teachers alike - the words are simple and the music is colourful and varied in style, exploring major and minor tonality, contrasting rhythms and the opportunity to move and "bop" to the most lively numbers.
These songs may be linked by narration written by the children themselves to tell a story or take a journey into the garden - there is plenty of scope to inspire teachers' and children's imaginations. Props may include paintings, models, mobiles and masks.
The songs lend themselves to simple percussion and clapping rhythms. For Foundation, Key Stage 1 and Special Education Units.
