Naming Song

by Bewcastle School Reception Class A simple song to sing in a circle. Very good as a calming song, a welcome song for newcomers, or a way for visitors to learn children’s names. After each naming sentence, people choose three places on their body to make percussive sounds, a gesture or sign. E.g. – touch tip of nose, knees and toes. When saying the person’s name everyone extends their hand to them in a welcome sign.
