Whether you are tapping, shaking, banging or blowing, musical instruments are a great way to get children engaged in music.
The children are exploring how sounds can be changed and learning how to copy a simple repeated rhythm.
Watch this space for some future professional musicians.

Would you go on a lion hunt?
They little lion hunters in Nursery 2 have been busy at work trying to see what they could find.
With their binoculars to hand, they went on a hunt around the school.
They found pictures of animals and even a lion cave.
It´s so much fun being an explorer!
The children in Nursery 1 have been improving their fine motor skills with this fantastic sensory activity. Using their hands, fingers and paint brushes they watched as they made prints with the bubble wrap.
Who would have thought bubble wrap could have multiple uses!
The children in Miss Elizabeths class have been having so much fun exploring and creating their own games.
Here´s one they made earlier…
As we passed by today through one of the Foundation 4 classes, we saw the kids just enjoying the afternoon and playing in corners. It’s a pleasure to see them relaxed and exploring different learning spaces, role playing and interacting with their peers!
Something magical happened last week in Nursery 3. The children created their own Mini Enterprise with the help from the GCSE business students in Pre-U. Both, the students in Pre-U and the children in Nursery 3 learned together to work in teams, to teach and learn and to take part in a collaborative business project.
It was amazing to see the children create their own Cookie Shop. They were involved in every stage of the whole business process. And that means a lot!
Within their teams, they were responsible for; market research, product design, buying ingredients from the classroom shop, baking and decorating the cookies, coming up with a brand name, decorating their shop for the big day and finally the role play part in which they would sell the cookies at their shop to the parents.
It is a great way to get the children to think of the bigger picture whilst paying close attention to the small details.
Getting the children to take pride in what they have created and worked so hard for was such an easy task as all of the children enjoyed the process so much.
A big thank you to the parents for showing up on the day and really embracing the role play task. Role play is such an important part of the young childs education and it means a lot to us that we could share this with you.
We cannot wait to do it again soon!
Nursery 1 are all set for their ´Easter Egg Hunt´ this afternoon with the parents.
They have their hats and baskets at the ready.
