Autumn

Five Little Pumpkins

Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate, (hold up 5 fingers)

The first one said, “oh my, it is getting late!” (hands on cheeks)

The second one said, “Theres a chill in the air!” (arms around self)

The third one said, “But we don’t care!” (Shake pointer finger)

The fourth one said, “We are ready for some fun!” (hands in the air)

The fifth one said, “Lets run and run and run!” (arms mimic running)

So whoooooo went the wind, (make a whoooo sound)

And out went the lights, (clap hands once loudly)

And five little pumpkins rolled out of sight. (roll hands)

Autumn

Autumn winds begin to blow (blow)

Coloured leaves fall fast and slow (fall motion with fingers)

Twirling, whirling, all around (turn self around)

Till at last, they touch the ground (fall to the ground)

Apple song

To the tune of: Have you ever seen a Lassie?

Have you ever seen an apple, an apple, an apple?

Have you ever seen an apple that grows on the tree?

A red one, a yellow one, a pink one, a green one,

Have you ever seen an apple that grows on the tree?

Scarecrow, scarecrow

Scarecrow, scarecrow, turn around

Scarecrow, scarecrow, touch the ground

Scarecrow, scarecrow, reach up high

Scarecrow, scarecrow, touch the sky

Scarecrow, scarecrow, bend down low

Scarecrow, scarecrow, touch your toes

Autumn Leaves

To the tune of: London bridge

Autumn leaves are falling down, falling down, falling down,

Autumn leaves are falling down, on the ground

Find a broom and start to sweep, start to sweep, start to sweep,

Find a broom and start to sweep, on the ground

Make them in a great big heap, a great big heap, a great big heap

Make them in a great big heap, on the ground

But here comes the wind to blow them round, blow them round, blow them round

Here comes the wind to blow them round, on the ground

Winter

Little Snowflake

To the tune of: “Are you Sleeping “

Dance like snowflakes, Dance like snowflakes

In the air, In the air

Whirling, Twirling snowflakes,

Whirling, Twirling snowflakes

Here and there, Here and there

Over The Mountain

Oh the bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain,
The bear went over the mountain,
To see what he could see.
But all that he could see,
But all that he could see,
Was the other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain,
Was all that he could see

So he went back over the mountain,
He went back over the mountain,
He went back over the mountain,
To see what he could see.
But all that he could see,
But all that he could see,
Was the other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain,
The other side of the mountain,
Was all that he could see. All that he could see!

There's a worm at the bottom of the garden

There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden,
And his name is Wiggly Woo.
There’s a worm at the
bottom of my garden
And all that he can do is wiggle all day,
And wiggle all night.
The neighbours say,
What a terrible fright!
There’s a worm at the bottom of my garden,
And his name is Wiggly Woo
