Fun, fun, fun!

We had a wonderful Babies session this week. The babies are settling in nicely and they seem to be getting used to the pattern of the sessions. This Tuesday was only the third session but we had 14 children, an excellent number.  The smiles and chuckles have been coming thick and fast. What has been especially rewarding for me over the last couple of sessions is seeing how the mothers have become more relaxed and some new friendships are forming. The final ‘one-off’ summer sessions are on Monday 11th August… Read more Fun, fun, fun!

The summer ‘one-off’ trial sessions are only lasting 30 minutes, but we managed to pack lots into the time: Calm cello music to get us in the mood; a welcome song; followed by exercises, action songs, a listening exercise, a game of peekaboo, high and low movement, keeping the beat, some rocking and rounding everything off with a goodbye song.  Some of the babies discovered… Read more And we’re off!!
