Missing

Written as an additional solo opportunity to add to the amazing ‘Edith’s Wartime Scrapbook’ written by Mick Riddell and published by ‘Edgy Productions’. (I highly recommend this as an end of term production.) The song works as a stand alone song too for KS2 to tie in with a topic on ‘War.’ Extension activities include creating a piece using a melodic ostinato and writing topical songs and raps.

A fun song written for a Reception class to be performed with actions and instruments to enhance their assembly about ‘Chinese New Year.’ but it would be suitable for the whole of KS1.

The Magic Nativitree

The Magic Nativitree

This is a Magical Christmas Nativity play in more ways than one. The story starts when the teacher announces that the local priest has asked Years 1&2 to provide a tree for the Christmas Tree Festival in his church but the tree has to tell the story of the nativity. As the children are dispatched to the hall to create their decorations magical things happen when the children put their decoration on the tree. The decorations come alive, sprinkle magic glitter on the children and the song and dance begins. Cohesion is added to the play in the form of the 'Cutting and Sticking Song' which the children loved and the songs are cheerful and varied ranging from the 'Country and Western' style of the 'Animals Song and Dance' to the 'Rock and Roll' genre of the 'Shepherd's Song and Dance.' As the final song says......'The Magic Nativitree.........helps us see.........what Christmas means for you and me.'

Open the Door to Your Heart in Advent (A Service of rhymes, prayer and song for Advent)

Open the Door to Your Heart in Advent (A Service of rhymes, prayer and song for Advent)

Written in 2011 and performed by the juniors in two separate schools. This is a thought provoking service with rhyme, readings and reflections including a mixture of old and new carols to help us all prepare our hearts for Christmas. This is not a passive service as each class takes a theme and creates art work to depict this theme, sings or dances to their theme and writes their own reflections to make every child feel a part of the event and hopefully reflect on their own actions during Advent.

An Acrostic Advent Service

An Acrostic Advent Service

Written in 2012 and performed by St Joseph's R.C. School in Hertford, Advent themes are explored by spelling out the word Advent. Each child plays a part by singing, reading, listening or writing original reflections whilst hopefully examining their own Advent journey. A combination of musical styles makes this a heart-warming and thought provoking service.

Circles of Light (A thought provoking Service for Advent)

Circles of Light (A thought provoking Service for Advent)

Everything you need to produce a thought provoking Advent service for Junior Children. Each class owns a circle of light ( four purple candles in a wreath each with a theme.) The children then write their own bidding prayers, reflections or poems to accompany their own circle of light. I chose a mixture of old and new carols and songs to bring the sometimes 'tired' traditional carol service up to date and make it really relevant to the children in their Advent Journey. The service can be adapted to suit your own needs. This one was written to be performed in St Joseph's Church in Hertford. Hope this helps you create a really meaningful service in amongst the secular build up to Christmas.

Nativity Crackers (A Christmas Musical Nativity Play for KS1)

Nativity Crackers (A Christmas Musical Nativity Play for KS1)

A delightful Nativity Play with a modern day twist. An enlightened Parish Priest determined to make parishioners focus on the real meaning of Christmas hands each family a box of Christmas Crackers as they leave Midnight Mass. These are the 'Nativity Crackers' and each riddle and gift reveals something about the Christmas Story. As the crackers are pulled and the message dawns on the family, they freeze frame and we are transported back in time to the events of the first Christmas Story. The children, staff and parents of two Hertfordshire schools loved this play. The songs in a variety of styles offer much scope for actions, dance and solos and the script can be adapted to suit your needs.

The Nativity Band (The Christmas Nativity Story told using musical instruments)

The Nativity Band (The Christmas Nativity Story told using musical instruments)

An original re-telling of the Nativity Story giving the children the opportunity to play classroom percussion instruments as well. In the story the 'teachers' ask the children which instruments would best paint a musical picture of the characters in the story. As the instruments are selected and played the characters take centre stage and the story unfolds. The children, teachers and parents from Sacred Heart School in Ware and St Joseph's in Hertford really loved the performances.
