The children had great fun singing Christmas songs especially written for Rhythm Time and enjoyed exploring toys in Santa’s sack and bouncing reindeers, Father Christmas’ and snowmen on a sheet of lycra. Finger puppets were also used to sing a song about a Robin.
The floor was covered in pretend snow and each child took turns in placing a foam shaped snowflake onto the snow while singing along to well known Christmas songs and carols.
The music classes culminated with a dance around the Christmas tree followed by juice, biscuits and mince pies!
Rhythm Time teacher Kate Maddock said: “Everyone had great fun and really got in the Christmas mood. The children particularly enjoyed seeing my flashing Rudolph nose and antlers!”
Rhythm Time differs from other early learning classes because its music classes have been developed in parallel with the National Curriculum by a former head of music at a Scottish school.
Rhythm Time was created 15 years ago in Solihull by mother of two Kathy Doolan who trained at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music & Drama in Glasgow.
For more information about music classes for babies, toddlers and pre-school children, please contact Kathy Doolan on 0121 711 4224, www.rhythmtime.net. The new term starts in January and places are still available.
