The Dragon class have used the lyrics of “Do they know it’s Christmas?” as a shared reading text. The children used their comprehension and inference skills to work out the meaning of the song. They then learned the lyrics and performed the song.

The children enjoyed the song so much that some of the children decided to make their own books in the continuous provision and wrote the song lyrics in them.

Here is what the children had to say about the song.

What is the song about? “Feed the world is about giving the poor people some food and water to stay alive.” Z-K.G

What does world of plenty mean? “It means we have lots of food in our country but in their world, they have nothing to eat.” M.M

Why is life the greatest gift? “Because food will help them survive” M-S.R
