Today Pre-school have been singing their hearts out and building cogs, Mobilo and stickle bricks into microphones!
So we decided to make our own instruments. The children went off to the modelling station and found lots of bits that looked ideal and like they might make lots of noise!They chose lentils, pasta and rice and set the messy table up all by themselves! We discussed ways to keep the materials inside the tubes and using glue and card covered the ends so that we didn’t loose anything – we hope it wont be long until the glue is dry. The children are so excited to use their instruments and get singing at the top of their voices!
