Issue 34: Pease Pudding – the Yes/No game

Last week I put up an article about the tune “Pease Pudding” as a partner song for “London Bridge is Falling Down”. I had rather assumed that I had already written about the pulse and rhythm game associated with the tune, but it appears this is not the case…

You will find the tune written out here. Teach the song, adding a spoken “Yes” or “No” at the end of each phrase;

Pease pudding hot   yes     Pease pudding cold   no   Pease pudding in the pot, nine days old   no

Some like it hot   yes       Some like it cold   no    Some like it in the pot, nine days old    no

Once the song is known, the game is to sing the song in your “thinking” voice – ie “in your head”, just saying the “yes” and “no” words out loud. It is more than likely that the children will say the final “no” too early, first time around!

Pease pudding hot   yes     Pease pudding cold no   Pease pudding in the pot, nine days old   no

Some like it hot   yes       Some like it cold   no    Some like it in the pot, nine days old    no
