Nursery - Phonics with the boomwhackers
In Nursery the children were very excited to explore using the boomwhackers! They had lots of fun exploring loud and quiet sounds, fast and slow sounds and even using them to syllable clap each of the children's names in the class.
In Music 6NW have been learning how to play the steel pans. This has been a musical instrument that the children have loved playing! They have learnt how to change pitch and volume on a steel pan as well as various different notes.
Mr Robins came into our class to join in with our music lesson. We started off listening to a really lively piece of music that made us feel really happy - some of us started dancing and we all pretended to play the instruments we could hear. Even Mr Robins joined in playing some imaginary drums.
After moving to some rhythm games on Charanga, we copied Miss Heszelgraves who tested us on copying her clapping rhythms. Some of them were really hard.
We even had time to get the boomwhackers out and once Mr Robins had told us that the bigger the tube, the lower the sound, we tried to play Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. Here is the video below. We hope you enjoy listening to it.
