Today was our trip to The City Hall for our Singing Start project. We had a great time!
We set off from school and got the tram into town…
We got to the City Hall and had a look at the displays from the different schools. Then we joined in with lots of fun activities, like making our own instruments…
After lunch we all sat together to sing our songs with Martin and Luke…
We had a great day and all the children listened and joined in beautifully! A huge thank you to everyone who came, we hope you had a lovely time too.
Last term we were very lucky to have Martin Harwood come and sing songs with us as part of The Singing Start project. We learnt new songs, explored percussion, took turns being conductors and even made up our own songs. Click here to see what we got up to.
We even started an after school music club with children throughout school.
We had so much fun that we made a movie of what we did. Click here to watch it, we hope you enjoy it!
For the next 10 weeks Martin the Music Man will be coming into nursery every Monday afternoon to sing songs and play instruments with us.
We sing nursery rhymes, silly songs and we even make up our own songs! We have lots of fun joining in with the actions and playing instruments together.
We have been singing …
- Incy Wincy Spider
- The Wheels on the Bus
- Twinkle, twinkle, little star
- Wind the Bobbin up
- Baa Baa Black sheep (and Baa Baa Yellow Sheep!)
- Mr Clickety Cane
We sang funny versions of songs we knew as well like Twinkle, Twinkle, Chocolate Bar and Incy Wincy Spider in the Bath
Here is one of the new songs we learnt …
I had a little turtle,
His name was Tiny Tim,
I put him in the Bath Tub,
To see if he could swim ,
He drank up all the water,
He ate up all the soap,
Tiny Tim was choking,
On the bubbles in his throat!
Bubble, bubble, bubble
Bubble, bubble, bubble,
Bubble, bubble, bubble.,
Bubble, bubble, POP!
We will also be running an after school club called ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’ click here to find out more!
Yesterday we started our new after school music club – ‘Shake, Rattle and Roll’. It is a club for parents and children to sing and join in with actions together. We sang lots of songs we knew and some new songs too.
Shake, Rattle and Roll is on every Monday, straight after school. All of Foundation Stage (Nursery and Reception) are invited and brothers, sisters and babies are very welcome too. If you would like to join please fill in your slip and hand it to your class teacher.
In nursery we had a very exciting trip to The City Hall. We went to ‘Sing a Story’ from Music in the Round. We had been getting ready for our trip by learning the stories .. Little Rabbit Foo Foo, The Train Ride, Three Little Pigs and The Grand Old Duke of York.
We went to The City Hall and had a very exciting afternoon. We went down on the tram with all of our friends.
When we got to the City Hall there was an orchestra and we saw lots of interesting instruments we had never seen before. There were lots of songs and actions to join in with and there were even amazing actors who dressed up and acted out the stories. We were so happy that our grown-ups came with us too.
Thank you to everybody who came!
The children worked very hard on this year’s Christmas performance.
It was called Humph the camel. It was a story of a very grumpy camel who liked to say ‘humph’. He didn’t like to talk to the other camels and did not want to travel to Bethlehem. He kept saying ‘humph’ until he saw baby Jesus and he was so excited he sang louder than everybody else!
The children in Reception did a great job of telling the story and playing the parts. They had to remember their words, when it was their time to talk and where they needed to go. The nursery children did some brilliant singing and remembered all the actions.
Well done everybody and thank you to all the grown-ups for coming to see us!
