Parents/carers to stay with children during the workshop
MUSIC BOX workshops are joyfully led by Mrs Lucy Chewins, a teacher in Yarrells Early Years. (She may be known to you as the founder and leader of the popular Carver Music School in Parkstone.)
The session is held in our EARLY YEARS CENTRE. If you wish to arrive 10-15 minutes early please do so as children can play in the NURSERY PLAY GARDEN (under their parent’s watchful eye) if weather permits. It’s a good opportunity to burn off some energy before we settle down inside.
NOTE: You will need to come to the front door and walk through to the Early Years Centre.
MUSIC – Key to Learning
Through music, children experience a host of learning skills: rhythm, pattern, sequence, effective listening, co-operation and the joy of learning. Singing helps to develop memory and concentration. Action songs help motor control; dance aids co-ordination; mime stimulates the imagination. Children enjoy a wide range of age-appropriate resources in each session including: puppets & masks, scarves, balls, beanbags, hoops, bubbles, parachute and MUCH, MUCH MORE.
