Aspire not to have more but to be more – St Oscar Romero


Good morning everyone! I hope you are all well, happy and looking forward to seeing one another on our Zoom meeting at 10am this morning. The link is on my blog page. smileyheart

Have your African masks ready if you have made one. I’m just thinking that some of you may have left them at school so don’t worry you can bring them home next week and share them at our next Zoom. If you have a musical instrument... shaker, tambourine or something homemade that you could shake or tap bring it along

( pasta in a tub would work very well!) or you can just bring your hands ready to clap along! πŸŒŸπŸ’•πŸ™Œ


After my little videos I’ve put the details of the song we will sing and tap to; it’s our Aardvark song we’ve been doing from the Charanga scheme. Don’t worry if you’ve not yet practiced there’s time before our Zoom. I’ve also put an African dance on below. Try and have a go at practicing your moves with your mask on and then we will all have a go together. Some Friday African themed fun! 🌟🎼πŸͺ˜

A little prayer to start the day.

Thank you so much for all of the emails yesterday; I haven’t yet replied to them all yet,  but will do so this morning. πŸ€—It fills us with joy to see the videos and pictures so thank you so much for taking the time to send them in! πŸ™
To start our day, here's a little video from Harriett. Firstly, what she has built is very impressive and secondly listen to what she says about what it reminds her of. What a lovely message!smiley

Music and Dance practice for our Zoom Meetinglaughheart


 Below is a clip of some African dancing together with some great drumming. Wake yourselves up by joining in and practicing some stepping and jumping patterns. I also love all of the arm movements. I will put this on in our Zoom so we can all have a go together! We can't wait to see your actions!

Our Charanga Zootime Aardvark Song


 Mrs Rogers sent an email a couple of weeks ago with login details to the YUMO section. I’ve done a couple of videos to show you where to go to practice the beat or pulse. This is what we will tap on our instruments or with our hands or on our knees! Take inspiration from the dancing penguins!πŸ€—πŸŽΌWe then move to practice the song with words! 🌈
