Songs And Dance

Hi everyone,

 

I think I've just about got my head around planning for a reception class after planning for Yr 6 for last 3 years. However, I've got a bit of a mental block with songs to sing at carpet time and dance lessons.

Our head is very keen for a creative development of our curriculum across the board but I just can't think how to begin.

Do you have any good resources that you would suggest with songs and also something for dance and movement type activities.?

I would be very grateful for help here.

Thanks in advance

Moisy

"Bobby Shaftoe, clap your hands" by Sue Nicholls is a really good resource for songs with nursery and reception - lots of new words to old tunes that you can tie in with your daily routines and use for circle times too- I woudl thoroughly recommend it!

there are lots of resources on the web. I have just found a canadian one (recommended by my cousin who teaches pre-K) look for Dr. Jean. She has some fantastic ideas. Might be a good idea to go on google canada.

We too use music express for music but my dance is all taken from 'Let's go Zudie O' AC Black again I think - I was recommended it by an advisor and it is brill, has cd and music and dvd clips to share too - we all love it, suitable for nursery too.
