Gloucester Toddlers have been exploring with natural resources, using all their senses and looking at, listening to and feeling all different types of textures and colours.
They found that some items makes noises and discovered that it’s really fun to hear sounds that were made when holding shells up to their ears. We extended this activity by listening to different sounds made when we played musical instruments. We heard the bang and beat of the drum, the shake of the rattle and the clash of the symbols! It was super fun listening and making all these sounds!
