How do we do it?
Two experienced music leaders work with the children and staff to experience a fun and interactive music session. The sessions are sung with some guitar accompaniment, but not using backing tracks enables the leaders to work at the pace of the children, enabling children to take part and interact more easily. Over the weeks, the children build on the musical activities and songs and continue to learn new material. The children and teachers are encouraged to improvise with the songs and adapt them to fit particular topics and sing them throughout the day, developing maths skills, problem solving, co ordination and self confidence.
This unique workshop gives teaching staff the opportunity to observe and assess the children, along with guidance to interact and extend activities; increasing their own skills & confidence to use music and song in the classroom. Using Piccolo’s award-winning songs along with live instruments, we reinforce core numeracy, language and literacy concepts as well as supporting physical development and Personal, Social and Emotional Development.
In the sixth week, parents are invited to the workshop. This is not a performance but an opportunity for children to showcase their work and the songs, encouraging the parents to take part and sing with the children. This is an ideal way for schools to work in partnership with parents.
