Dance workout

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!).

Why not have a go yourself?


Answer these funny questions with a yes or a no:

Is the sun wet?

Can a van go up a hill?

Has a cat got a web?

Is a lemon red?

Can a duck quack?

Are fish and chips food?

Is a thick book thin?

Can coins sing a song?

Can a coach zoom into the air?

Use these words and make some yes/no questions up for yourself:

nails shops hammer chop dark night cows car

fit can is are teeth fingers arms sail road bees buzz moon food hard mix win wig get

cat web jet robin

Of course, you can use any of the words from the questions as well. Write them down on some paper or in your book, and don’t forget to draw some pictures. Ask your family to answer the questions!

Some songs to sing

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!

Visit Chester Zoo

Today Chester zoo will be throwing open their virtual gates. This might interest some animal lovers today. Maybe you can find out some new animal facts or draw some pictures of your favourite animals 

People can ‘visit’ the zoo live from 10am on today (Friday) and will tour various habitats every hour until 4pm.


Rhythm sticks

The children are used to making music with rhythm sticks – but you don’t need proper sticks, you can use anything in the house you can bang together – wooden spoons, twigs, pencils or pens and so on…

Have a look at this link on Youtube – the people from Makin’ Music will take you through the song. Everyone in the family can join in and have fun.

And here’s another song with movements for you from Pinkfong on Youtube.

Have fun!

from Miss Middleton


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.

What are these flowers called?
Perhaps you can spot some cherry blossom from your window…
A frog with its frogspawn.

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.

Have fun and let me know how you get on.
