A themed Sing in honour of St Patrick's Day.
Another Home Ed Big Sing session continuing to develop the idea of musical contrasts, learning new songs and getting to grips with some instruments and boomwhackers. Fingers crossed for good weather to allow the kids into the garden too.
Our Christmas co-op will be a mix between Christmas crafts and Christmas party. We will have party games, carol singing and lots of crafts to try. This is always a popular one and a great chance to meet other home educators or catch up.
Please could each family organise a craft to bring as well as a contribution to the party food. Vegetarian food only please!
The cost is £5 per family if you pay between now and Wednesday 7th December.
From Thursday 8th to Monday 12th December the cost is £6 per family or £7 cash on the day.
Our first home ed Big Sing- everyone welcome. We will be learning how to warm up our voices and bodies for singing, trying some familiar and some unfamiliar songs, and attempting some rounds and part singing. The emphasis will be totally on fun. Families attending will split the cost of the room but it won't be much. The Racquets club is very near Wallace Park, and Hilden Train Station. It's on a bus route and has parking. I'm so excited!
