Emotions and Feelings
Music is recognised as being hugely important to wellbeing and in difficult times like this we must make sure we help children through and with music. In this Emotions and Feelings Adventure the children not only explore how they are feeling, but how things make them feel, how they can express those feelings and also explore how others might be feeling and how we might know.
In addition to the cross-curricular learning, by joining in the children will:
recreate the sounds of words in musical actions and learn to keep an ostinato going;
play a game of expressing different emotions and exploring how we might portray these in our actions and our music;
play a game using lollipop faces to show the feeling they think music is expressing and witness first hand that we all feel things differently and that there is no right and wrong to how we feel;
use body percussion to relax to a Brazilian lullaby;
hear how tonality can change music from happy to sad with the Emotional Teapot; and
count along with our hungry frogs.
We also have a short animation of our popular song The Emotional Teapot which will be available shortly.
Which Areas of the Early Years Foundation Stage are covered
The information in this quick glance guide is SUPPLEMENTARY to how the Lesson Adventures cover the seven areas of learning as set out in the Harmony's Music Club and the Early Years Framework document which can be found here. It is not to be read in isolation.
We all know that accidents happen - that cups of tea and coffee get spilled, that pieces of paper get put in a pile never to be found again.. and consequently Harmony's Music Club does not limit downloads of Lesson Adventures.
We also do not require you to subscribe to access our material on a quarterly or yearly basis so that you have the freedom to pick and choose the material which you want when you want and because we know that not all schools have the same financial resources at their disposal.
However, in exchange for this, we do ask that you use your judgment in how many Lesson Adventures you put in your basket to reflect how many teachers will be using them. Please respect this so that we do not have to raise our prices.
