Today we would like the children to copy a body percussion sound or a pattern of sounds.
The adult begins by producing a body percussion sound such as a clap, stomp or beat of chest.
The sound is then passed to the child such as clap, clap , clap
Do you think the sound stayed the same? What changed? Did it get faster or slower?
Make it more difficult by introducing a simple sequence of sounds for the children to pass on. This is a pattern of sound.
(e.g. clap, clap , stomp, stomp, tap your head)
Can you sort the washing by colour and size?
Understanding the world
Tonight the 21st April we are expecting an meteor shower.
So why not have a late night night and look up high by star gazing.
