Tiddely Pom Easter 1 April 2020

Hello, Tiddely Pom is a music programme for young children under 7 that I have been running for over 30 years. Through the year you’ll find lots of songs to sing and crafts to make but also musical activities that will help your little one establish good musical foundations.

I am a mum of 7 children who with my husband taught all of them at home up to the age of 13.

I hope you will find resources and ideas useful.

A lovely round we could sing together is – Hi Bonjour, Shalom, Gutentag….

And here’s a tune I’m sure you’ll know : If you’re happy and you know it clap your hands.

Now let’s do some rhythm names together

Here is some pussy willow in the Spring sunshine

CRAFT video – how to make an Easter Cross with twigs and wool

See you next time.

Making and weaving a paper heart

This craft activity has very simple materials but takes a bit of practice . Persevere and you will succeed . All you need is coloured paper of any type – (choose two colours) and a pair of scissors.

These sweet hearts make a lovely gift for birthdays, Easter, Mother’s day, in fact any celebration.

You can fill it with chocolates or other small gifts even money!

Artists 61-70

Dates can be learnt more easily if they are linked to a visual image such as the major memory system. Look back at Artists 1-10 to see how this is done. Note you have a key word like CHAT which is your word hook. CHAT is number 61 because CH stands for 6 and T stands for 1. Now use your imagination to place CHAT in the painting so you can link it to number 61 in your list of 100 artists. I think of the teeth of the dying in Gericault’s painting ‘the raft of the Medusa’. Do the same with the word CHAIN and so on……..
