Full Script of  a play/musical of Oliver Twist

Full Script of a play/musical of Oliver Twist

This is a script that has been performed successfully by primary school aged children with adults, but can be performed by high school age and above. It's 1 hour without an interval but has been written as two 30 minute Acts. Including the music adds about 10 minutes on each Act. The lines are suitable for children to learn (in our performance Oliver and Dodger were 8 years old) and has a suitable ending for a children's production. The cover picture gives you an idea of costume and staging. I have had media consents to use this picture.

Pass the ball around the ring: A rhythmic game song for the Early Years.

Pass the ball around the ring: A rhythmic game song for the Early Years.

Musicbuds offers 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 to encourage children to work as a team and concentrate for extended periods of time so that the flow of the ball is never interrupted. The anticipatory part at the end of the tune (when children don’t know how many times they are going to be asked to pass the ball on!) makes it fun. The strong pulse encourages young learners to pass the ball in time to the music. Can be used as a stand-alone game song; to establish the concept of pulse in music; as part of Circle Time; to enhance physical development such as crossing the midline or as Song 2 in Pack 2 of 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  -illustrated children’s lyrics suitable for a Songbook
