London's Burning: Singing A Round

We have learned the song London's burning off by heart.  We then looked at the rhythm and structure of the verse and wrote our own extra verses based on our knowledge of the Great Fire of London.  We discussed what 'ing' verbs we could use to bring the description of the fire alive.

London's Burning

 

London's burning, London's burning.

Fetch the engine, fetch the engine.

Fire, fire!  Fire, fire!

Pour on water, pour on water.

 

Fire crackling, fire crackling.

Smoke is spreading, smoke is spreading.

Run, run! Run, run!

From the fire, from the fire.

 

People running, people running, 

From the fire, from the fire.

Help, help! Help, help!

Tell the king, tell the king.

 

Flames are crackling, flames are crackling.

Thames is steaming, Thames is steaming.

Run, run! Run, run!

Fetch the water, fetch the water.
