The Patch Primary School

Music improvisation and conversation workshops about Children's Rights in being heard and having opinions respected. The composition of a short, punchy musical jingle with a clear message using children's language and musical ideas from the workshops about children's rights to express views freely and the right to be heard.

A backing track has been recorded for performance opportunities and further teaching of the jingle to the school community. It will provide opportunities for performance which will continue to spread the message. The project will listen to children. The jingle will send a message to parents, teachers and other adults to listen and engage with children.

LISTEN TO KIDS

Copyright Catherine Russell 2019

Verse 1

Listen to Kids
Happy or upset
Kids learn respect from adults when we’re shown respect
Listen to kids
We want you to play
Value our opinions and remember birthdays!

Chorus 1

We make worlds in our games
We take them with us as we grow, as we grow
We are the next generation
We have the power to change the future!

Verse 2

Listen to kids
It’s important to hear
Sometimes it’s hard to say that we need you near
Listen to kids
You might have fun
Know we love you- everyone!

Chorus 2

When we play, we fly
But we’re humans, yes we are, yes we are
We are the next generation
We have the power to change the future!

Bridge

Running round the oval
Rolling in the leaves under Mother Oak
We’re all yelling in the Dragons Nest
Listen to kids so we can be our best!

Chorus 2

When we play, we fly
But we’re humans, yes we are, yes we are
We are the next generation
We have the power to change the future!

Outro

We make worlds in our games
And when we play, we fly
We have the power to change the future
Listen to kids!
