🦩 Let's talk about 💥 PREDICTION ⭐️

🧑‍🎓 This is such an important part of your child's language development, and one of the reasons that singing songs and rhymes is soooo helpful for building speech.

👶 Babies use familiar rhymes to help them work out language patterns, where one word ends and another one starts and so forth. They also learn conversation patterns, timing and turn taking.

😍 On Monday, one of our babies kept beating me to the "POP!" at the end of "Bubble... bubble.... bubble...!" What a clever little squidge: he's learnt where it comes, to form the word, and to shout it at the right time! 🫧

🦩 Greetings and Happy New Year, oh lovely followers!

I hope that you have all had a wonderful couple of weeks, and that if you were celebrating Christmas that you enjoyed yourselves!

I am slowly pulling myself out of a mince pie and cheese induced stupor and back to reality 🫣🤣

Classes are back NEXT WEEK and emails will be coming shortly to the email list… just got to sort out a GP appointment and take kids to the dentist first 🙄🤦‍♀️

See you soooooon!!!! 🎉🎉🎉

🦩 Gentle nudge to transfer please if you haven’t yet done so for the Christmas bonus session 😘 I’ve got to pay for the turkey later 🤣

20/12/2023

🦩 Well, Christmas sessions are over, and my children and I went home via Tring Brewery… which led to some interesting car packing 😂 Sadly none of the beer is for me 😢

I’ll probably be a bit quieter over the next few days as I’ll be spending some time with —mince pies— family, but I’ll be dipping in and out… and I’ll be back! 😘

18/12/2023

🦩 Quick turnaround today from Singing Santa Gwen to Marshalling Gwen… pointing the children the right way at my son’s Santa Fun Run.

I took off the full Mrs Christmas regalia… I thought the hat and a tambourine would probably be embarrassing enough for him, don’t you?!

16/12/2023

🦩 Term has officially ended at Singalong, but we have a Christmas Bonus session still to come! 🎄🎅🥳

Come and join us for some more Christmassy fun - suitable for 0-4s, although if your little one has an older sibling who's already on holiday, they're welcome to come too! You don't need to have come to Singalong before - new faces also welcome!

🦩 I was sent these lovely photos yesterday: same child, three years of Singalong Christmases! That gorgeous little nine month old is now a wonderful singer and dancer 😍

🤩 What a total joy to see your children grow 🥲

🦩 I intended to swing by my friend’s bookshop after classes.

🎄 I realised I didn’t bring a change of clothes 🤶

Should I just style it out?! 🤣

🦩 Late post - it’s been a long day 🥱

So I think this now qualifies as a “throwback” to this morning 😂 Happy face Gwen after a brilliant two sessions with loads of energetic little pickles and a whole host of achievements!

What happened this morning then?

❤️ Fab jumping from our toddlers!
❤️ Awesome listening skills with those sleepy bunnies
❤️ A first time hopper!! Congratulations young man on your one-legged achievement 😍
❤️ Brilliant quick actions standUPsitDOOOWN
❤️ Oh so cute clapping from the babies
❤️ And every single baby did more real drumming than drumstick chewing!
❤️ Plus some really super knee patting in Wind the Bobbin
❤️ And those goodbye waves 🥰 Melt my heart!

Can you relate?! 😍

26/11/2023

🦩 We're getting in just before the Advent Calendars this week with a bit of revision of our NUMBERS!

Don't worry - I'm not going Christmas crazy just yet really 🤪 We'll be doing some dancing to the beat, some jumping with the froggies, cremating those poor old sausages again and maybe we'll fit in a quick trip to the moon... 🚀

I'm counting on you to be there 😂

🦩 It's Black Friday!

Deals and offers galore! 🥳

🤑 This is easy to do if you're a big company with big profits. It's not quite so straightforward for small businesses where every single customer through the door is genuinely helping to put food on the table!

❤️ So with that in mind, I wanted to create a bit of a thread of small businesses that my lovely customers would like to recommend. You might be thinking of Christmas gifts, or you might just want to bring a business to people's attention for use whenever they need it!

🎉 Hurrah for Small Businesses! Hurrah for their customers! 😁

22/11/2023

🦩 Lovely to see you this morning! Well done for searching us out 🔍 😂 Back to normal next week!!

Yesterday I called in on my friends at The University of Buckingham Bookshop to get ahead with my Christmas book orders 😇 (What do you mean “not ahead”??! This definitely still counts as “ahead”!!)

Alison and Adam offer a *fantastic* service based in the Vinson Building, with gazillions of gorgeous children’s books to browse through (and grown up books too, but the kiddies’ ones are my faves!). If it’s not in stock they’ll order it pronto, and even wrap it too if you need!

Happy Bookshopping!

The sun is rising on a beautiful new day.

I am in the shop today and tomorrrow and ready and waiting to recommended books for gifts. We have already started compiling wish lists for recipients and fulfilling wish lists for the gifters.

We love it! (We offer free gift wrapping too!)

Happy to recommend even if you can’t pop in….just send an email to [email protected]

Enjoy the beautiful skies ☀️

We’re here!!!! In the little hall!

🦩 Join us this week for some finger shaking, toe tapping, drum banging, bell ringing, triangle dinging fun!

🦩 It’s my elder daughter’s weekend on duty singing in Oxford this weekend. Bit Harry Potter, don’t you think?

🦩 It's World Nursery Rhyme Week!

The last rhyme for the week is The Wheels on the Bus! Always a fave 😍

Where would you go on your bus? 🚌

🦩 It's World Nursery Rhyme Week!

🛶 Today's rhyme is Row, Row, Row your Boat. You can have loads of fun with this at home making up all sorts of crazy verses! Don't forget to scrunch yourself really small if you're in a tiny boat rowing across the puddle! 🚣‍♀️

Try to play with the rhyming words... but don't worry if your poppet thinks "outer space" rhymes with "pool"! That's totally normal 😍

🦩 It's World Nursery Rhyme Week!

Today's rhyme is Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes (Knees and Toes!).

We've had a lot of fun in classes this week "magic lipsing" this... it is of course a game you can play with pretty much any well known rhyme, but I find it works best with rhymes with a good beat and clear actions 😀
