Hoo-oo, hoo-oo, can I follow you?

Our students have been learning songs from different cultures and lands. Zoë, our Song Room teaching artist has supported our three language areas: Vietnamese, Arabic and Italian. Here is a lovely version of the Italian song Angellare by Kavisha Mazzella

You can listen here:

Angellare 3:4s

“Hoo-oo, hoo-oo, can I follow you? Hoo-oo”
sings the owl to the moon
“Hoo-oo, hoo-oo, can I follow you? Hoo-oo”

the moon glows in the night
the moon is yellow and white
where does the moon go?
the owl wants to know…

Angellare ba boom, Angellare boom ba
Angellare ba boom, Angellare boom ba

the stars live up in space
shooting stars come to some place
where do the stars go?
the owl wants to know…

Angellare ba boom, Angellare boom ba
Angellare ba boom, Angellare boom ba

“Hoo-oo, hoo-oo, can I follow you? Hoo-oo”
sings the owl to the moon
“Hoo-oo, hoo-oo, can I follow you? Hoo-oo”

when owls grow up they go
mum says “you need to find your own home”
the owl, the stars and the moon
are leaving very soon
to the water, behind the sea
and there they all sing for me –

“Angellare ba boom, Angellare boom ba”
“Angellare ba boom, Angellare boom ba”
“Angellare ba boom, Angellare boom ba”
“Angellare ba boom, Angellare boom ba”

We look forward to a possible visit from Kavisha in the future.

Thank you to our beautiful singers and Zoë.

The Song Room at DMPS

At Debney Meadows PS we are lucky to enjoy the extra support for learning by The Song Room. Our teacher is Zoe, and she works with all of our students once a week. Our students explore themes around identity and storytelling. They use their imaginations, share ideas, collaborate on song writing, sing, move and build confidence in the process.

Our Year P and 1/2 students have been using songs to think about ways they can deal with new situations, new people and being part of a group – a community. They are performing Yellow Bird on Wednesday 2nd November at Melbourne Town Hall as part of the Carnavale performance. As principal, this will be my first performance that I have the pleasure to watch. I can’t wait 🙂
Our 3/4s have had fun looking at the characters and stories in fairytales and fables and messages of dealing with challenging situations.

The 5/6 students have explored emotions through rap and blues and have worked together to create their own raps.

Thank you TSR for the great work you do with our students.
