Made possible with the generous support of:
1, 2, 3, Sing With Me!
The 1,2,3 Sing With Me! programme was
a partnership project involving HMDT, Shoreditch Trust, Groundwork
East London and the Early Years and Play Service in Hackney. Ten
local residents were referred to the programme from Shoreditch Trust,
the area's New Deal for Communities initiative, and offered a comprehensive
training programme aimed at enabling them back into full time employment
as nursery play-workers, which included working towards an NVQ in
Early Years Care and Education. 1,2,3 Sing With Me! complimented
the training package by offering musical training through an exploration
of multi-cultural musical forms and traditions to enable the trainees
to use music as a tool for play and development when working with
children in their own nursery.
The programme was specially designed to offer
the trainees, and the children participating, a range of participatory
music and movement activities with which to create music from different
cultural traditions to encourage self-expression and provide a language
for emotional and creative development.
Led by tutors Alison Blunt and Sian Davies, training
was delivered within the nursery environment at Comet Nursery, the
Round Chapel Nursery, St. Paul's with St. Michael's Nursery, Comberton
Early Years Centre and Phoenix House Montessori Nursery School.
1, 2, 3 Resource Pack
A resource pack for the project was created
for the trainees, teaching staff and parents/carers to include
a repertoire of music suitable for nursery aged children offering
advice on delivering music sessions, exercises and games, and
references to encourage further musical development.
ONLY £10 (including postage within the UK) Excellent value!
