Pull the circle out - A giant elastic song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

Pull the circle out - A giant elastic song for early years’ learners (0-5 year olds)

At last! Musicbuds is here offering an exceptional range of original and well-crafted resources underpinning common musical objectives whilst focused on prominent EYFS themes. Aimed at all Early Years’ practitioners from class teachers, music specialists, teaching assistants, playgroup leaders to EAL and SEND support teachers. This song was written for ‘Circle Time’ or ‘Emotional Literacy’ time – a reflective period during the week when children are faced with objectives regarding their personal, social and emotional development. Inspired by some of the Orff-style circle activities including the ‘cup song’, this was written to encourage children to work as a team. It introduces a rock ’n’ roll walking bass providing a solid, rhythmical underpinning. Children can feel the pulse as they follow the actions which are mirrored through distinctions in pitch (e.g. ‘up’ is sung an octave higher than ‘down’). Can be used as a stand-alone giant elastic song; as part of a lesson on prepositions; as part of a physical lesson developing muscular strength and body awareness or as Song 7 in our 30-minute music and movement session. Each song includes: 1) A comprehensive lesson plan -highlighting EYFS and Music objectives covered -directions on classroom management -recommended list of props/visual aids -ideas for Extended learning  -inclusive planning for children with EAL/SEND profiles -different ways to deliver the material from Music/EYFS perspectives -formatted to allow easy cut-and-paste options into planning documents 2) Audio tracks - vocal & backing 3) Sheet music - for piano & guitar 4) Lyrics  -teachers’ lyrics with directions for classroom management  -children’s lyrics suitable for a Songbook

Fine motor Activities

Fine motor Activities

Whether there is a specific medical reason or late development, a child who struggles with fine motor control can become frustrated, angry or suffer low self-esteem. They may tire quicker than their peers when attempting fine motor tasks. Some of the tasks may include, resisting drawing and writing, having trouble holding a pencil correctly, slow handwriting and struggling to use scissors. These activities are designed to be fun and improve fine motor skills. I found that having a small box of tricks to draw upon for quick 10 minutes interventions worked well, can be used 1:1 or as a small group.

As a SENCO I found it extremely frustrating constantly having to remind teachers about specific students needs and how to support these. Despite having access to an inclusion register. I have created this booklet that has been given to all staff to ensure they are fully aware of all students with additional needs and how to support these fully in their lessons. The contents have been collated from various websites and sources for ease of use in one document. Including key documents made by myself. The booklet contains: 1. An introduction to the booklet and how to use it 2. Key and Acronyms 3. Broad areas of need explained 4. List of students identified with SEND (anonymized ready to input your school's information into) 5.
