Music with Mummy | Katie Cater

musicwithmummywotton@hotmail.com 07912 617818

Hi, I'm Katie, I'm a former Primary school teacher and mum of three boys; twins who are 6 and my littlest one who is 17 months. When I'm not busy chasing them around, I have the privilege of running Music with Mummy and Jolly Babies classes in the Wotton-Under-Edge and Dursley areas! I absolutely love my job and it is lovely getting to know all the little ones and their families each week while we sing, dance and have loads of fun!

Each week in Jolly Babies we start with a hello song so we can get to know each other, then we sing a variety of traditional and original action songs, use fun props, play instruments, dance or bounce, have listening time with bubbles and lights, and finish with a lullaby and a goodbye song. It's half an hour of loveliness! Each week builds on the previous week so you get to know the songs to sing at home as well!

In Music with Mummy classes, we begin with a hello song where children can continue to develop their social skills, confidence and independence. Each term we focus on key musical concepts such as loud and soft, long and short sounds etc through termly themes such as 'Toys', 'Colours', 'Light', 'Family' and we continue to have fun using lots of props, instruments, dancing, action songs and listening time. We use a mix of traditional and original songs and build on the learning carefully each week so you can both get to know the songs and the learning can continue at home too! We finish each week with a fun goodbye song that everybody loves!

As well as running classes for babies and toddlers and their parents/carers, I also teach 2 preschool groups in Wotton and I am really enjoying helping them develop so many key skills too! On Wednesdays and Fridays I also work with Claire in the Dursley area where we have classes established daily. Please see the Dursley page for information on our timetable there.
