What we've been up to...
Baby room revamp!
We have made some lovely changes to our baby room.
With a new sofa and cushions in our book corner, it makes it feel much more cosy and homely.
Moving to music
The children enjoyed dancing and moving to the music we made whilst reading books and singing the songs.
The practitioners all joined in, demonstrating different actions to different songs and how we could move our bodies to make different sounds with the musical instruments.
The children loved joining in with this so much that we then put some different songs on the speaker and started to interpret our feelings towards the music into actions.
Listening to music throughout the day enables the children to express themselves when and how they want to.
This week we have enjoyed dancing along to music with different coloured ribbons.
The children chose the coloured ribbon they wanted, exposing the children to the language of different colours, identifying the different colours and labelling them for the oldest children.
The adults encouraged the children to dance to the music, move their ribbons and express themselves.
The children loved moving their bodies to the different beats.
Ribbons are a great open ended resource for children and can be used in many different ways.
