Lenny the Lion came to sing with us

So what does happen down in the jungle??

Well we found out at our sessions this week.
Lenny the Lion needed his washing doing! We sang and danced helping him with his washing and getting it dry!
The jungle band was marching through the jungle with lots of different instruments.
We had fun with dynamics, pitch and tempo games.

Music and Movement, Early years music for nurseries and schools

Loads of musical fun this week!

Preschoolers have been dancing with Berty Bloomer, who sings about looking after the garden.
We have been  building our confidence by singing simple solos and tapping the tambourine.
Using our shakers we have been working on dynamics, singing and playing loud and quiet, we have been looking at pitch using our high voices and singing up high and finding our low voices and shaking our shakers down low.
We had Sally Sunflower visit us with her bee friends, we sang and 'buzzed' loud and quiet.
Five little speckled frogs had lots of fun bouncing on the pond (Lycra), and we enjoyed the change in tempo as the frogs bounced faster and faster!
Ending the fun with some relaxation and listening to some beautiful world music.

I have finally decided to take the plunge and add a blog to my site. I always wanted an easy way to share information with visitors and I’m super excited to start this journey. Keep coming back to my site and check for updates right here on the blog.

Anyone can make one:
For better or worse, anyone can write a blog post about anything they want. Everyone has a voice and the best voices will rise to the top.

The writer can show their personality:
In blog posts, the writer has more leeway to add in their voice and personality than other types of writing.

Blogs are a great form of mass communication:
You can help people, learn new things, entertain your audience—the possibilities are endless and amazing. Blogging opens up all of these to a very wide audience.

You can make money:

Get the right blog going and you can make a lot of money through advertising and sponsored posts.

It allows people to craft better thoughts:
Instead of reading haphazard, uneducated Facebook statuses, it’s much better to see people’s thought process in a well-written blog post.

You can establish a community:
Blogging allows you to connect with other individuals who share the same interests. Sharing ideas and opinions within your community helps establish yourself as a thought leader.

Good for SEO:
Keeping content on your site fresh and relevant, you can use your blog to boost the search engine ranking (SEO) of your site and your business.

It brings people back to your site:

If your blog is strong enough and updated regularly, people will come back looking for more and bring traffic back to your site as well.

It’s free:
It costs you a grand total of zero dollars to post to the blog, so if you have something to say, there’s nothing to stop you.

You can establish yourself as a thought leader:

A blog is a great place for your original thoughts, and it can be a wonderful way to show off your individuality. If people like your ideas, you can become a thought leader in your industry!
