Hartbeeps brings nursery rhymes to life with music
August 29, 2012
A rapping crocodile is bringing nursery rhymes up to date for pre-school children at a new music class.
The creature is one of a number of puppets used by Liz Smale in her Hartbeeps music and sensory classes at Jennett’s Park Community Centre.
Liz launched her new classes on Thursday, August 2, with a fairies’ tea party. Each child was given a pair of wings and a plastic cup and saucer. Liz, who trained in baby yoga, said: “We sang nursery rhymes, which are very important for language development.
“At the end of sessions we have a snuggle time when I use a laser light projector to create stars and we all sing Twinke Twinkle.”
The classes are every Thursday and begin at 9.45am for walkers, at 10.45am for babies who are sitting and at 11.45am for babies from birth to sitting age.
