The Nursery children have had lots of musical experiences recently. As part of Creative Arts week they joined in with other pupils from Springfield and Madley Brook for a drumming workshop – some of the drums were nearly as big as the children! We pretended to be animals in the jungle with little tapping footsteps or big stamping ones getting louder and louder.
When the ‘Inclusive Folk’ project visited the school, we listened to the band playing in the hall then had a workshop where we were able to join in and explore some new instruments. The piano accordion was particularly intriguing to feel. We bounced different animals on a big stretchy ‘parachute’ as the musicians played and sang different songs.
In the Integrated Nursery we are learning songs about Springtime and Easter. We have lots of percussion instruments that the children can play and everyone enjoys making different sounds on the keyboard!
