- This month’s promotional offer…
How are you planning to celebrate Christmas at your nursery setting? Music and dancing are a great way to get into the spirit – after all, it is the season to be jolly (tra-la-la-la-lah…)
The Boogie Mites Arctic Adventure Workshop is a collection of 9 downloadable songs which can be practised throughout November and December with variation and progression ideas included in the teacher notes. It can be used to create a performance for parents, a singing assembly or just as a fun way to explore the Christmas theme. You can use it to teach children about the non-religious traditions of Christmas, but we have also included an optional song relating to the Nativity Story.
Along with traditional songs (which, of course, have a Boogie Mites twist) you’ll find catchy and fun BM originals. The workshop is suitable for children aged 2 to 5 and the props and instruments are craft made, making them accessible on a low budget! You can use pans or empty containers for drums and grab a couple pens or wooden spoons for tapping sticks – as long as everyone can feel the beat!
As with all Boogie Mites resources, the songs support the Early Years Foundation Stage, with a particular focus on the 3 Prime Areas and School Ready skills. They can be used in any order, in a one to one session or in a group.
We have even included a suggested performance order to get you started, with optional ideas for costumes and scripts suitable for older children.
The downloadable pack contains:
- Nine downloadable Christmas songs with additional instrumental versions
- Videos of six of these songs in action to model delivery
- Song lyrics with actions
- Suggestions for practising and performing each song
- Ideas for props and instruments
- A suggested performance order for a non-religious Christmas show
- A script for older children or adults
- ‘How-to-make’ sheet so you can make the instruments used

- Wave Hello Now It’s Christmas
