The children have been singing many songs about animals such as Slippery Fish, I Have a Little Turtle and Ika Ika to name a few. But Old MacDonald is the favourite.
Occasionally the Academy rooms will treat us with a mini concert so I thought we could do the same. I asked the children if they would like to give the Tuataras a concert. I was welcomed with a loud YES. We excitedly made our way to the Tuatara room, we weren’t quite as orderly as the older children. What a performance! I was so proud of these young stars. They sung with heart and passion. Well done tamariki ma.
Where to from here?
More mini productions! I wondered if we could sing “Old MacDonald had a Zoo.” It will be interesting learning about the sounds wild animals make. I’ve always wondered what a Zebra sounds like. We could use sign language to name the animal too.
