Seven Fish – Count to Number 7 Lyrics

1 2 3 4 5 6 7

Numbers 1 to 10 Gus would love to teach,
while he's having fun playing at the beach.
I feel I really am in seventh heaven,
'cause coming up is my favourite number seven!

Seven fish swimming, in the sea.
Looking around, happy as can be.
One fish says "I think it's really cool
to be a member, of this fish school".
Swimming on top, Gus makes a little wish,
that he could swim like the seven little fish!
Seven fish swimming, in the sea.
Looking around, happy as can be.

Seven Fish – Count to Number 7 Learning Activities


  • Intro: When you hear the numbers show your fingers to count along.
  • Listen to the song.
  • Ask children are the 7 little fish swimming fast or slow? Slow
  • Why do you think the fish are swimming slowly? Because the music (tempo - speed of the beat) is slow.
  • Ask children to join their hands together to make a fish. Play the song again and children 'swim in time ' to the music.


  • Ask children to put their hands behind their back and say "show me seven fingers?"
  • Write the number 7
  • Write the word - seven
  • Draw seven objects


  • "Let 's Go Fishing" Place 7 nails in a bucket of water; tie a magnet to a piece of string; how many fish can you catch?


  • Making pathways - students swim like a fish through the space making curved, straight, sudden turns and zigzag pathways as the teacher calls them. Freeze when the music stops.
  • Children need to be aware of their own 'space bubble. '

Visual Art

  • Use crayons to draw a fish then paint over your picture with dye covering all of the paper.
