Series 5, Episode 11: Merry Christmas & a Rudolf Dance!
In our final Musical Moment for 2020, we learn a fun little dance routine for Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer! This is a great dance to enjoy at home with your own children, or to use with a group of little people in your Christmas Concert. Have a marvellously musical festive season! I look forward to sharing more Musical Moments with you in 2021!
Series 5, Episode 10: Slippery Fish!
In this weeks' Musical Moment, Anne Belcher from Branch Into Music shares a Canadian children's song by Charlotte Diamond, "Slippery Fish". This song is perfect for children aged three years and older - they absolutely love the rude little surprise at the end! Have fun with this one!!!
Series 5, Episode 9: Here is the Sea and DIY Ocean Drum
In this week’s Musical Moment, Anne Belcher from Branch Into Music shares a lovely old Play School song, “Here is the Sea”, and shows you how to make your very own DIY ocean drum - a musical instrument that sounds just like the sea!
Series 5, Episode 8: Brown Bear (A Sung Story)
In this week’s Musical Moment, Anne Belcher from Branch Into Music shares Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle’s beautiful book, “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?”
We have fun looking at the bright, happy pictures, working out what colour each animal is and what sound it makes!
Singing a story is a lovely thing to do with little children!
You can do it with any rhyming book and your favourite simple tune.
In this example, I used the melody from “I’m the king of the castle”. Other nursery rhymes like “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” would work just as well.
Enjoy the story!
