Mainly Music Group

This is a group for toddlers and their carers   featuring music and movement.

 

Our Mainly Music parent and toddler group restarted on Tuesday 28th August. It was great to see how our wee ones have grown and developed over the summer, and lovely to have fun, sing, dance, and chat together.
We are now meeting every Tuesday, from 10am to 11.30am, in the Small Hall.Tuesday 28th Aug
The dates we meet are as follows:
4th, 11th, 18th and 25th  September, 2nd, 9th October. We do NOT meet on 16th as it’s the school holiday week.
Then we continues 23rd and 30th October, 6th, 13th, 20th and 27th November.
Dates in December will be confirmed later.

We look forward to welcoming back families who have been before and welcome any new families who wish to come. Each session costs just £2 per family, regardless of how many children come, and includes music and fun, healthy snacks for the children, and cuppa and biscuits or cakes for adults, and much more!

When you come to mainly music, engage with your child and you’ll find they participate more and gain more educational value as a result.

PHOTO: eyes
Children will learn to name parts of their body as they interact with the songs and rhymes.

PHOTO: flying
The sessions contain a lot of movement, helping children use and develop their gross motor skills.

PHOTO: handmouth
Co-ordination and co-operation are two outcomes of many of the songs and rhymes.

PHOTO: looking
Children will listen for instruction and look to see what others are doing – then copy. Their ability to grow skills in this area ensures readiness for school.

PHOTO: marching
Marching is a contralateral movement – which involves opposite sides of the body working together. These movements stimulate both sides of a child’s brain – which helps to activate and strengthen nerve-cell pathways which link both sides of the brain.

PHOTO: rollaround
Hand/eye/body co-ordination is very important as children grow and develop. At first a child will not be able to achieve this movement. But as they practice and gain opportunity to perfect the movement (which happens at mainly music), their skills will develop and their brain will be strengthened. This rolling action is also a contralateral movement.

In a mainly music session, percussion instruments and props are used to assist children’s learning and engagement in the songs and rhymes.
