It’s all about making music at St Norbert’s Academy in Crowle.

Music Bugs, run by Julie Wilkins, holds sensory sessions for parents and children to learn songs and enjoy familiar ones, using props from finger and glove puppets to parachutes or hobby horses.

The fun classes are intended to help children to mix with others and develop their skills. Sessions take place at venues around the Isle.

Julie Wilkins said: “We use action songs that encourage fine motor skills for finger awareness, to gross motor skills for moving and jumping around. Props and songs vary each week to keep sessions fresh and interesting.”
