music sessions

music-manThe children have been enjoying music sessions for some time now and this enables the children to develop in the specific area of the Early Years Foundation Stage known as Expressive Arts & Design. Early Education (The British Association for Early Childhood Education) states “This area includes essential skills and knowledge for children to participate successfully in Society”. During these music sessions the children have used percussion instruments to teach them how the play “in time”.

Drums and shakers are also used to teach the children to play at different times in different rhythms. The children have also been looking at listening skills.
John says “Not only is singing songs, dancing and using instruments fun, I do believe it has a positive impact on the children’s education as a whole and having the chance to work with the children at Victoria House is without a doubt one of the highlights of my working week”.
