How are the classes structured?
Singing and warming up
Singing and warm up movements are designed to encourage a fun start to classes. Framing the class with a structure is important for children to feel comfortable and confident. The start of a class also gives children the chance to expend some energy and noise before they start their art activities! We begin with our very own Red Jelly song, follow the words below! You can also preview this on our latest video.
“Red Jelly, Red Jelly
We’ve all come to Red Jelly
To paint and stick and make a mess
We’ve all come to Red Jelly!”
Playing with art
Activities are designed to encourage children’s natural curiosity and children are allowed to ‘free flow’ between them, according to what they enjoy. Activities include: sticking, painting, decorating large, cardboard structures and giant wall murals, messy play, building, drawing, colouring and chalking. More information about what you can expect each week can be found in the ‘theme’ section of this website.
Each class closes with a snack and short story. Our 'tidy up' song starts playing before story time to indicate that it's time to wash hands, put dirty smocks in our laundry bin and grab a snack! Story time gives the children time to wind down and understand it is the end of the class.
