|NURSERY SCHOOL - FLOWERS
Children... we're going
to do our nice 'Moving to Music' this morning, so let's make
a lovely fairy ring, shall we? And then we'll all be flowers
growing in the grass.
Let's make a big circle - spread out - wider - wider - just
finger-tips touching - that's it.
Sue, let go of Neville - Because flowers don't hold hands, they
just touch finger-tips. SUE. Let go of Neville.
And Sue, we don't want GRUMBLERS in our fairy ring, do we? We
only want smilers.
Yes David, you're a smiler - so is Lavinia - and Peggy and
Geoffrey. Yes, you're all smilers.
Don't get so excited.
And Sue is going to be a smiler too, aren't you Sue? That's
George... don't do that!
Now then, let's all put on our Thinking Caps, shall we,
and think what flower we are going to choose to be.
Lavinia? - What flower are you?
A bluebell. Good.
||A red rose. That's nice.
A wild rose. Well done, Neville!
Sidney? - Sidney, pay attention, dear, and don't pummel Rosemary
- what flower are you going to choose to be?
A horse isn't a flower, Sidney.
No children, it isn't funny, it's very silly. If Sidney can't
think of a better flower than that we'll have to go on to someone
else until he can.
Now then Sue, what are you?
Another rose! Oh I have got a lovely bunch of
roses, haven't I? Peggy is a red one and Neville is a wild one, so I expect you are a beautiful white one,
Oh, you're another red one! I see... Now then Sidney?
A carrot isn't a fiower, Sidney. Think dear, and
don't blow like that. How about a tulip?
A holly-leaf isn't a flower, Sidney. All right, you'd better
be a holly-leaf.
Now, children, listen very carefully. Elvis, stop bouncing,
No, bouncing isn't dancing, Elvis. Don't argue, dear - just
stop bouncing. You watch the others - you'll see.
When Miss Boulting plays her music I want you all to get up
on to your tipmost toes, light as feathers, and dance away all
over the room where-ever the music
