I don’t take any credit for what follows (nor would I want to given the poor quality of the product) but I do often do songs with my classes at school and the kids video me anyway so I may as well try to do a slightly better job of it.

I also promised (the significantly more talented than myself) Aimee I would begin recording some of these so she could put them on her website at at least half the songs I sing at school are hers!

I recorded this for the Geek Pop show at the end of 2010 and shortly afterwards decided it was worth putting it together with my sing-a-longa-powerpoint I run for the kids to sing along with while I play.

Not for one second do I say that these songs are any more than a bit of fun but it did really cheer me up when one day a former student said (by way of another member of staff at the school I had since left) that she’d hadn’t remembered a single equation for her GCSE physics exam except for the one she “learnt that song about with Mr. Fleming 3 years ago”.

So here it is .. merry christmas (and yes that’s another song but it’ll have to wait til next year!)
