The session started with a musical warm-up led by Miss McGeary on her keyboard. Some of the children managed to reach some very high notes!
After that, Miss McGeary taught the children the word to the song. This was very tricky as the start of the song is not even in English! We were particularly impressed with the children who volunteered to sing on their own.
Once we were more familiar with the words to the song, we split into two groups. This is where we learned a very difficult skill -harmonising. Harmonising is where each group has to sing different words but still stay in time with everyone else.
The final part of the session involved us beginning to think about what 'The Circle of Life' would look like when performed in the show. All of the characters are animals so the children practised moving around as an animal whilst still singing the song.
Next week we will spend more time thinking about acting out the show.
