Each Peach Pear Plum
This week in nursery we will be looking at the book, 'Each Peach Pear Plum.' We hope you enjoy the story.
To experience and develop awareness of sounds made with instruments and noise makers.
- New words to old songs – Take a song or rhyme your child knows well and create new words for it based on your child’s interests. Use percussion instruments to play along to your new song/ rhyme.
- Which instrument? This activity uses identical instruments. You could make your own or use ones you might already have at home. Hide and play each instrument one at a time. Encourage your child to listen carefully to the sound each one makes and then play the matching instrument in their pile.
- Develop the activity above by playing a simple rhythm or by adding a familiar song to accompany the instrument. This time your child will need to listen very carefully to discriminate between the singing and what instrument is being played.
- Adjust the volume – Explore the instruments you have made or using the instruments you already have at home. Try playing them loudly and quietly. What instrument do you like the sound of best? Why?
Please look at the document, 'Additional activities to support your child's learning in 30-50 months' and the new document 'Summer 2 parent support activities 30-50 months' for more ideas how to support your child in the different areas of learning.
