About the weekly sessions
Little'uns is for children aged 1 year - 2 and a half years.
In the younger toddler class the parents/carers join in all the activities together with their child/children. We always begin with a hello and naming song which creates connection with the group and helps builds the confidence and self-esteem of each of the children. The activities flow from one to the other at a good pace and there is a whole range of physical skills that develop co ordination.
We do simple fun actions/movement to different rhythms and beats, and use brightly coloured equipment such as scarves and hoops.
There are different exercises in the activities designed to encourage social skills such as giving, receiving and sharing.
In the songs and music we count, name days, colours and animals, which support and boost early language and numeracy skills. The format of the session generally remains constant but varied eg one week we may use teddy bears, the next week puppets or sea creatures or birds.
We use cuddly toys, throw and catch balloons/scarves and try to blow bubbles.
Everybody loves bubbles!
In our 45/50 min time together we aim to have as much creative musical fun as we possibly can.
At the end of each session we sit in a circle and have a fruit snack, giving you and the children the chance to socialise while I begin the next group (Big'uns) elsewhere.
Big'uns is designed for children aged 2 and a half to 4 years of age.
Children this age can generally feel confident to be led by me while Mum/Dad/Carer sits to the side and watches/relaxes.
The format of the 45/50 mins is more fluid allowing for things to go off on a tangent if there is particular enthusiasm towards a theme eg about an animal, song or story.
Children of this age group will often come up with their own ideas and it's a lot of fun making them happen.
Plenty of opportunity is given for the children to express themselves vocally whilst encouraging listening skills and taking turns.
The children do more challenging physical movement such as skipping, balancing/running and hopping, all accompanied by the piano player.
We sing well known children's songs and rhymes as well as introducing some new comical songs every few weeks.
We listen to the music and try to recognise the tune.
Every week we do a circle dance about the Earth , Moon and Sun and talk about the world around us, as well as singing about animals and the seasons.
Each session ends with a conga train to the fruit snack circle.
