Curriculum links:English (KS1: oral activity; KS2: En1 5, 6a)
Science (KS1: Sc 2c; KS2: Sc 2c, d, e)

Discuss the title with children. What is a fiddle? How is it played? Why might we think it was fit? What do we mean by being fit?

You can also use the song to create a class performance:
  • Listen to the song , ‘Fit as a fiddle’.
  • Create two phases for the song. First put the verses into action on the spot: Stand with feet astride; Hop on your right foot and so on.
  • During the chorus the children could choose a fitness activity (for example, jogging, jumping or dancing) and move around the space as they sing, standing still for the verses.
  • Don’t forget to include a big finish… as a fiddle!
