  • The second question instructs students to fill in the missing bar lines.
  • The third question gives students the opportunity to create a rhythm in 2/4 metre.

Students can write their rhythm on the staff lines provided, or they might like to write a melody with their rhythm!

The words of the song this worksheet is based on are 'nonsense syllables' i.e. not real words. The pictures chosen are reflecting children having fun, just as you could expect them to have fun singing the song!
