Music, movement, sound etc topic

Discussion in 'Early Years' started by helen_earlyyears, Feb 25, 2011.

  1. Hi,

    I am doing music, movement and sound in nursery. I have covered musical instruments for 1 week- lots of identifying & matching sounds.

    This week I was going to focus on lots of listening to sounds. Was wondering if anyone would be able to just have a look at some brief ideas I have.

    Day 1: listening to sounds being made & identify - instrumental & a few environmental. Also play sound lotto where children listen & match to sounds.

    Day 2: Play sound stories from Letters and Sounds. Play some sounds in a sequence and the children have to select picture cards & put in correct order they heard the sound. Listening to body percussion sounds. Pass a sound around a circle. Add sounds (i.e. clap. then clap, clap).

    Day 3- listen to different sounds. Loud/quiet sounds, fast/slow sounds. Can the children identify loud & quiet sounds? Can they make those sounds?

    Day 4- listen to the percussion part of an orchestra. what instruments can they hear? Tell them a little about an orchestra. I pretend to be the 'conductor' and children play instrument when I say.

    Day 5- listen to clips of musicals/films. Can they identify them.

    I'm not very sure about this so was wondering if anyone has done these activities or am I way off the mark for nursery? The orchestra day would be very simple- children watch me- if I point to them they play instrument.

    Many thanks everyone,
    H
