GO!GO!GO! ELECTRO WELCOMES NEW MEMBER

 
 
GO!GO!GO!+AMY
 

We hope everyone will give a warm welcome to the newest member of Go!Go!Go! Electro, Amy!

We wanted a wonderful new friend to sing and dance with, and Amy fit the bill perfectly.  Amy is bubbly, happy and never stops dancing! We've had so much fun in rehearsals and we have become the best of friends already. We can't get enough of that beautiful voice.

London born Amy was only six years old when she got to perform at Sadler's Wells Theatre and the Royal Albert Hall. She discovered her love of performing and hasn't stopped since.

Amy has already had her first pair of socks stolen by the Fluffalope! We'll need to remind her to hide them from our fluffy monster friend in future. Welcome to Go!Go!Go! Electro, Amy!

Resident artists, Go!Go!Go! led the crowd in an interactive version of the super, catchy rave tune.

Just as the smiles couldn’t get any bigger, the screen raised to reveal the pawesome leader of the Squirrel Club himself, Duggee! Duggee hit the legendary Ministry decks to spin a few of his favourite tunes, before heading outside for a meet and greet in the Colouring Courtyard, so his fans could collect their Duggee hug!

Hey Duggee is based around 'The Squirrel Club' run by a big lovable and huggable dog called Duggee. It’s a place where children take part in all kinds of activities, have adventures & earn activity badges all along the way. Duggee teaches the Squirrels about being responsible, working as a team, taking acceptable risks and most importantly having fun!

Go!Go!Go! are delighted with their new huggable friend, Duggee. What an amazing rave!

 

WHAT HAS THE FLUFFALOPE BEEN UP TO?

FLUFFALOPE+SOCKS+GOGOGO+GOGOGOSHOW

Hello everyone!

Did you make any new year's resolutions? Let me explain in case you don't know what a new year's resolution is. A new year's resolution is when you decide you're going to do something better in the new year or stop doing something that you don't think is good. Grown-ups make new year's resolutions all the time and so can we. It's like a promise that you try really hard to keep.  

My new year's resolution was to steal less socks! I love socks so much! They're cosy and snuggly and warm and I especially love them when they're brightly coloured. They also taste really good! I think it's only Fluffalopes that like to eat them. I haven't met anyone else that eats socks. I haven't done very well at keeping my new year's resolution. Never mind! There's always next year.

Lots of love from your friend, 

Fluffalope xXx

LEGO DUPLO CREATE VIDEO ALL ABOUT RAVE-A-ROO

 
 

As you probably already know, we are resident artists at the truly awesome family event, Rave-A-Roo. Rave-A-Roo is held at legendary, London, superclub Ministry of Sound. LEGO DUPLO were intrigued when they heard about this kids rave and the more they found out about Rave-A-Roo the more they liked the idea!

Check out this amazing video they made all about Rave-A-Roo to see what goes on inside the event.

 

SHAUN THE SHEEP BAA-CK AT RAVE-A-ROO!

 

Back by popular demand, it is with shear delight that we inform our mini-ravers and their grown-ups that Shaun the Sheep is returning to Ministry of Sound for our first rave of 2018. On 27th January, this family favourite will be raising the roof alongside the amazing Go!Go!Go! with Shake It With Shaun.  

Shaun the Sheep headlined for Rave-A-Roo last year and received glowing reviews. Go!Go!Go! stars, Jade and Carl and the amazing electro dancers sported flat caps, as they played farmers during this dynamic stage show. These Nick Jr. regulars brought their special brand of contagious energy to the stage, as they taught the eager audience how to Shake It With Shaun.

Our new favourite farmers [don’t tell the farmer at Mossy Bottom Farm!) busted out Shaun’s favourite dance moves in front of a big screen of Shaun performing them himself. Breaking the routine down into bite-sized chunks, these seasoned dancers coached the whole audience, until everyone could Shake It with Shaun.

After the roaring success of these events we felt we had to invite Shaun back to Rave-A-Roo to kickstart the new year for us. The pairing of Shaun the Sheep and Go!Go!Go! is a match not to be missed. Check out this awesome video to see what happened last time Shaun came to rave with us at the legendary London superclub.

 

How To Improve School Results

The Guardian newspaper published an article in October 2017, reporting on a primary school in Bradford that had experienced a surprising improvement in the results of their students SAT exams. 74% of its students achieved the required standard for reading, writing and maths. The national average is 53%. Not bad for a school that was in special measures in 2000. The reason for this drastic improvement? The school’s headteacher, Naveed Idrees, believes that this improvement is due to music, drama and art becoming an essential part of the school week, with students devoting up to six hours a week to music alone.

“Children learn rhythm, hand signs and movement, for example, in a way that will help their reading, writing and maths” says Naveed. As a bare minimum, each child gets a 30-minute music lesson, a half-hour follow-up lesson, plus a one-hour music assembly with a guest musician and group singing. The school’s attendance has risen to 98%.

Now there’s a few reasons to make music an integral part of your child’s life.

Singing & Dancing Promotes Child Development

Did you know that recent studies have shown that singing and dancing aids learning development?

Psychology professor, Patricia Riddell, of the University of Reading reports that “singing and dancing with children has been shown to increase brain connectivity and benefits child-parent interactions.”  

Singing is excellent for communication, language and literacy as well as giving children an early understanding of the world. Dancing is recognised as helping children in their social and emotional development as they interact with other children – as well as their physical fitness, creativity and coordination.

It is not only the child’s brain that benefits from these activities.  “Parents who sing and dance with their children are creating a fun and relaxed space to interact.  This improves communication and can help to relieve stress.”

A good reason for you all to sing out loud, dance your feet off and most importantly, to Go!Go!Go!
