The Christmas Concerts were wonderfully successful again this year.
The children had been learning the songs, signs and movements as part of our Expressive arts 'music' curriculum through which children learn about singing and music as well as rhythm, steady beat and pitch.
Our nursery children really enjoyed performing a range of traditional and modern songs celebrating Christmas and the winter season. These songs included old favourites like 'Twinkle Twinkle Christmas Star' and 'Father Christmas He Got Stuck' as well as new favourites such as 'When the Robots Came to Dinner' and 'Wake Up, Wake Up All You Woolly Sheep'...to name just a few. Of course we finished our concert by singing 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' to wish all our families a very Merry Christmas.
The concerts were very well attended and the children sung, danced and signed to a large audience of proud parents, carers and grandparents.
Very well done to all our nursery children and many thanks to all our families who supported this event.
The concerts were recorded this year, so keep checking back on the blog as the songs will be uploaded as soon as possible for those who couldn't make the performance, those who would like to sing along at home orjust re-live the event all over again.
The day after the Nursery Concerts, our children had a lovely trip The Hollies which is the local care home in South Normanton.
We sang and signed some of our Christmas songs and took cards to the residents of the home, which is just round the corner from nursery.
Visits such as these help our children to learn about our community and the people in it. It also helps them to learn about the importance of giving and sharing with others.
The residents really enjoyed the visit and the children sang beautifully. Well done to all the children and many thanks also for the support of our parents/ carers with walking the children to The Hollies. Your continued support makes trips like these possible.
