YEAH!

Here are some tunes to hook into your transformation lessons, play as pupils enter the class! Can they name that tune? More importantly do they know these songs? Can they spot the mathematical link? Are there any more up to date songs that link in with this topic? I first heard this idea at the SSAT Achievement show in 2010, unfortunately I can not remember the lady speaker!

T: I can’t speak french!

• Hi Darlena, glad you liked this, hope the pupils recognise the songs chosen and I am not too out of touch! 😀

• Hahaha, even if they don’t recognize the songs, they should be exposed to them! They’re classics! 🙂

• Yes, it is certainly part of our role to introduce them to the classics and rock out!
