Venue: NSPCC, 3 Gilmour Cl, Leicester LE4 1EZ
Price: £80.00 Per Attendee
'The Song Hamper' is a half-day course for all EYFS practitioners - a basketful of tasty songs that link to all the Areas of Learning and Development. Every song has been created to offer children a creative outcome...changing words to create new verses ... adding numbers to make a more mathematical focus... singing about newly introduced characters or adding new bath-time playthings! This flexibility provides for child-initiated learning and the repertoire can be sung outside or inside the setting; there are opportunities for making and using junk instruments to accompany the singing, too. Each song comes with full teaching notes, giving ideas and approaches for integrating music-making with the best holistic EYFS practice. The material is completely accessible and designed for non-specialists - every delegate will receive a CD Rom with recordings of the songs, backing tracks and the teaching notes.
This course is suitable for class teachers, NQTs, TAs and music co-ordinators who will be training other staff.
