This is Fun Week! Today is ‘Music and Dance Day’.
I am including a variety of music and dance links on Seesaw and here.
You can choose which ones you would like to listen/dance to.
Hope you enjoy them!
The music is to listen to and enjoy. I am attaching the words of the songs below so you can sing along if you wish to. I am also including a basic lesson on playing the spoons, if you’d like to try that out or just have a look at it.
Song 1: Kodaline's 'Saving Grace'. At the start of lockdown they asked people to send in images of what they were doing to pass the time and the video shows some of the clips they received. Hope you enjoy it!
Song 2: Maroon 5 sing the song 'Memories'. This is a cover of that song, sung here by One Voice Children's choir. This choir is an American children's choir. Their songs share positive, uplifting, and inspirational messages. Have a listen to it.
Song 3: 'From a Distance' is sung here by Nancy Griffith. This song is about the difference between how things appear to be and how they really are. This is very true to life at this time. At the beginning, being in lock-down at home appeared impossible - no activities to go to, no going to school , no mass, no play-dates. How could we get through this?
We now realize it is possible to do these things, all be it in a different way!
Song 4: Our last song today is 'Lovely Laois' sung by Trudi Lalor. Some of the video is recorded at the river Nore in Castletown. Isn't it nice to know our village is part of 'Lovely Laois!' Sing along with the chorus.
Playing the spoons: We all have spoons in the kitchen so this is something we can all try, if you want to. Click on the link and learn how to play the spoons. Try not to hurt your fingers and legs!!
