Music is a great way to engage children with listening. So, wrap up warm and go on a singalong listening walk down the street

The street song scene

Learning to listen and identify sounds plays a vital part in early language development and listening walks are a great way to help develop listening skills. You can also build on children’s experiences of sounds in familiar places and encourage them to think about where the sounds come from.

We went for walk down the street

Download the interactive resource ‘The street song’.

Before enjoying the song together with your children, you could open the interactive resource and talk about what sort of place it is: If you were walking down the street what might you be able to hear? Have you ever been to a street like this? What sounds do you hear in that street?

As you listen to the song, the catchy tune makes it easy for children to join in with the repeating phrases. Encourage them to join in with making the sounds as well. After playing the song, why not make up more verses of your own?
