Music -  This week we will be looking and listening to songs in the Latin style.  We will be giving our own opinion on today’s style of music and using our bodies to find the pulse of the songs that we explore. Today we will be singing back to small rhythms and sounds and performing again at the end of the session.  Remember if you want to send any videos in of your child singing or moving to the pulse, you’re welcome to.
