Sound journey

The staff at the Bath nursery enjoy accessing as much continued professional development as possible to ensure that they are offering the children the best possible start in their education.

Two members of staff recently attended some music training, which set them thinking about the opportunities we create for children to explore sound, as music isn’t just about songs! We provided different resources for pouring colourful rice on to, which lead to children describing the sound and talking and tuning in to the variation in pitch and discussing the sound.

It did lead on to a couple of songs about rain as the children thought that the rice sounded like rain!
