We’ve not focused on music much this month. Although with Christmas coming, music has been high on the agenda by default.
This month we’ve
N had his nativity play which was ‘There’s a miracle in town’. He was a villager, but that meant singing virtually all the songs along with the actions. He loves to sing and I’ve been able to hear him practising around the house. I don’t recognise any of the songs, apart from Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes which I’m presuming wasn’t part of the nativity play.
I never thought I’d hear a song from him called Razzle Dazzle, including jazz hands, but he was singing it to me even after the show was over.

I’m a little snowman. Think the tune of I’m a little teapot. His class sang the song along with actions at the school Carol Concert. I love watching N. He’s come on so much even since harvest festival back in October. Back then, he half-hid behind another boy next to him, but now he’s standing in line singing along and seemingly happy to be performing. I just need to get him up to speed with Christmas carols and their words now.
This isn’t too unusual given N’s been playing my Christmas cds all year. But we’ve been spotting the Christmas songs on the radio, singing along and N’s been announcing which he likes best….John Lennon’s War is Over. Uh, I’m not a fan, but it’s the first track on my Christmas compilation so of course N loves that one the most.
French. And singing along to his La Jolie Ronde cd that he had when he was at nursery.
N doesn’t do french any more. They do have a french club at school but he doesn’t go, and won’t then do french formally until he’s 7. I’m hoping he doesn’t forget it all, but I was impressed he could still remember some of the songs on the cd.
What’ve you been up to musically this month?
