5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, lyrical piece., 5 Feb 2012
This review is from: A River's Tale (Songsheets) (Audio CD)
This song is lovely. It has a beautiful, lyrical melody and perfect lyrics to link with the Water Cycle and the story of a river's journey. I am using it with Year 5 children but it would work for any KS2 group. The second vocal line is so simple and effective - just an echo of the first part, so is extremely easy to teach and immediately effective as a harmonising line. The tuned and untuned percussion parts require only a little rehearsal to learn. The CD backing tracks are great and the children enjoy singing to them. It is suitable for teachers who are not music specialists as the song more or less teaches itself! We all love the song and find ourselves humming it for days after we've worked on it!

5.0 out of 5 stars invaluable, 26 April 2010

This review is from: A River's Tale (Songsheets) (Audio CD)
A great way to teach some of the vocabulary associated with a geography topic about water or rivers. It could also be used for an assembly. A lovely memorable melody.

this song was perfect for a class assembly on the water cycle. The children learnt it very quickly and they loved the tune.

4.0 out of 5 stars An instant hit with Year 5, 26 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: A River's Tale (Songsheets) (Audio CD)
My Year 5 class have loved learning this song. It has provided stimulus for several different activities (there's a lesson in just locating all the rivers mentioned!) and the melody is easy to learn, though not simplistic.

The back cover and the listings both claim that the free downloadable resources from the AC Black website include "detailed teaching notes, a performance plan, tips for teaching the optional second voice part and tuned and untuned percussion parts." However, the website actually only has a pdf of the song words and the percussion parts. This was a disappointment to me, and is the reason I give A River's Tale 4 and not 5 stars.
