A message from Joe – “Parents are going to be under pressure to keep their children occupied, so for 30 minutes every weekday I can take over and inspire and energise kids to get active, bounce around and have fun. You can even join in with the kids.”
We couldn’t get the Body Coach on YouTube in school today, so we did Oti Mabuse’s Jungle Book dance class! It’s a good little work out, and it gets your brain thinking (especially if your co-ordination isn’t particularly good, like me!). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SboNzLZea0o
Firstly, I must apologise about last week’s songs – I didn’t realise that you would have to log in to Sing Up to view them until after I had posted. I’m afraid you have to have a subscription to view their songs – as we do in school. So here are some songs that I have chosen for this week from YouTube – 3 are from Sing Up that they release to the public, and one is a Sesame Street song.
Don’t forget to sing along – try and get the family to sing together, and follow the actions, or make up some of your own!

Please visit www.5-a-day.tv to log in using these details. When your children becomes really confident with different dance moves, why not ask them to design your own exercise routine. Take turns teaching an “exercise class” to your favourite music.
Hello reception! I’ve chosen some songs for you to sing this week, and I hope that you enjoy them. Spring has begun and the sun is shining. Plants are growing, there are spring flowers and blossom on the trees. Have a look through your windows or in the garden and see what you can see.
Here is the link to Sing Up. I have set up a playlist called Spring.
A note to parents – please sing along with your children – it’s good to sing together to get the whole family involved. Make up some actions – the children will be good at this. The song about the frog was created using children’s ideas – why not try to add an extra verse – make it up together.
