Hi, I’m Katie, I’m a former Primary school teacher and mum of three boys; twins who are 7 and my littlest one who is 2. 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 Cam & 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!
About My Classes
Since the arrival of Covid-19, things have had to change slightly with our classes but we are so pleased to be able to offer Covid-secure sessions with all safety guidelines and social distancing measures in place! We also continue to offer our sessions online so even if you can’t get to a face to face class, we have the virtual option as well so you never have to miss out on the fun! Hooray!
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!

Me and my son have been coming to Jolly babies since he was 9 weeks old and have both really enjoyed it. The music and props, alongside Katie’s enthusiasm keep my son entertained. Would highly recommend to others in the area, it’s a lovely start to our week!

Such a lovely class. Katie is really friendly and my son loved it. I highly recommend for anyone looking to spend a bit of extra quality time with their little ones.
