Calypso Kids in Schools

Calypso Kids specialises in high quality music & arts education for pupils in the EYFS and Key Stage One. We provide creative, interactive classes for both long term curriculum delivery for PPA, short term projects such as topic-based workshops and extra-curricular clubs. All our classes reflect the EYFS Early Learning Goals (16 and 17) & the National Curriculum programmes of study for music and art. Children learn to:   

sing songs & use their voices expressively, make music through experimenting with sounds on tuned and untuned instruments;  develop a wide range of art and design techniques in using colour, pattern, texture, line, shape, form and space; appreciate the work of a range of musicians, composers, artists, craft makers and designers.

 

Storytelling Workshops

As a deputy head, Emma-Jane had extensive experience of booking workshops to enhance areas of the curriculum so we know what schools want. Calypso Kids provides tailor-made workshops that can incorporate music-making, story telling, drama, art & dance.

With our percussion instruments, props & musical mats, unique to Calypso Kids, your children will be sure to have a memorable experience.

Workshops include:
