Stimulate learning about working scientifically through this year’s science song and dance groove. Listen, practice and show us your groove using #GSShare17 and perform it to new audiences on the 5th July 2017!

1) Download the lyrics here Along with the sheet music

2) Hear how the song is put to music

Backing track full version

Backing track Chorus

Backing track Verse 1

Backing Track Verse 2

3) Watch how the dance is created


Now put all three together and you have the Great Science Groove. 

Teachers should be aware that the gaps in the lyrics, where there is instrumental are to be filled with opportunities for free dance and exploration by the children. A time to really showcase their creativity about what they feel scientists do – using actions, movements and gestures to show their thinking.

Use #GSShare17 to show us your rehearsals and final performances! Do you like the Great Science Groove?
