Warming Songs for Winter Days: private showing in hall 2 at Sage Gateshead

Posted by | November 30, 2013 | Latest News | 2 Comments

Battle Hill Nursery have just enjoyed their own private showing of Warming Songs for Winter Days in hall 2 at Sage Gateshead as our final celebration of the More Tuneful Tots music project, which has now come to an end.

This musical show was brilliant!

This is an interactive show for younger children, which has been created by professional musicians who also work as early years music leaders at Sage Gateshead.

As you can see from the photos, the children were captivated. We all enjoyed joining in with the singing and dancing, and it got us into the festive spirit.

If you click the first image, then the ‘play’ button, you will be able to view all of these images as a slideshow.

We loved this special version of ‘Moves like Jagger’ with the words ‘We got the moves like Santa’.

This Santa definitely did have some moves too!

The show was set up in such a child-friendly way. The children were free to move around, and dance and sing.

The bell song was sung in a more classical style, and the children were captivated by the beautiful blend of vocal harmonies.

We thought that the fact the children were keen to climb onto the stage was a good indication that they were enjoying the show and keen to explore the set!

      Gill, thanks so much for taking the time to post a comment.

      I am so pleased you enjoyed the show.

      I loved that all of the children could watch, engage and join in however they wanted to. It’s often the child who sits very quietly and seemingly isn’t joining in, who is actually taking the most from the performance and will then go on to reenact it in front of friends and family. Let us know if yours do any reenactments for you and yours.

      Have a lovely Christmas,
      Kate
      🙂
