Music from around the World

Music from around the World

This week in nursery we have been listening to a wide variety of music from all over the world.  We have listened to the tempo, the different instruments and then thought about what they reminded us of.  We listened to bagpipes from Scotland, steel drums from the Caribbean, bongo drums from Africa and others too.  After that, we did some dancing and moved our bodies differently to the different music.

This week we are reading a great book about different coloured animals.  We’ve each painted one of the characters from the book and made a Brown Bear mask, using scissors to cut out a big circle and a stapler to attach the ears. After that we had to mix paint to get a brown colour before painting the mask.  Finally, we acted out the story using our masks.

Elmer and elephant counting

In Nursery, we have been reading different Elmer stories and talking about how all people are different.  We’ve also been counting elephants of different colours and trying to recognise some numbers.

Today we were very lucky in Nursery and we met the Owl man, Iona and Winnie. Winnie is just 1 year old, she flies around during the night and eats rats and worms!
