We aim to offer a warm and stimulating environment where all the children are encouraged to feel free and confident as to reach their full potential.
The classes aim to build trusting relationships with the educators as to build confidence and a sense of wellbeing before engaging and absorbing any information.
To achieve this, classes are interactive, authentic, and are taught with passion, fun and lots of magic! It is our responsibility as educators to understand how children develop and learn. Children do not learn in the same way. It is therefore the educator’s responsibility to be an effective diagnostician of children’s interests and abilities.
All Boogie bear teachers possess a positive, lively, calm and confident approach when teaching. All Boogie Bear staff undergo intensive training and are all DBS checked and hold their liability insurance and a music licence.
Week 1. 60 minute session.
Hello song, greeting each child..
(rain on the green grass) This poem teaches children the difference between Beat & Rhythm. We then choose varied emotions, e.g. sad, happy, crying etc to perform the poem.
Children are given various tongue twisters and are encouraged to use their memory and perform a tongue twister in front of the group. This week’s tongue twisters include; Little Lillian lets lazy lizards lie along the lily pads/ How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could/ Twelve twins twirled twelve twigs/ Each Easter Eddie eats eight Easter eggs. This is a very funny activity! Children love it.
This week’s story is; Goldilocks & the 3 bears. The children are all asked to choose a character, Daddy bear, Mummy bear, Baby bear or Goldilocks. Props are provided for the different characters.
Goldilocks went knock, knock, Knocking.
Boogie bear is passed around in a circle, when the music stops each child has to finish off the “question of the week” This week’s question is; What would you do if you landed on the moon?
Read a story that allows children to further develop rhythm, memory and observational skills. Other stories include, Brown bear.
