Communication and Language
Children in nursery enjoy playing musical games, where they listen to instructions and copy the adult. Children listen to different musical songs and clap along to the different elements of the song, they use different tempo, to clap faster and slower. Children are beginning to listen more attentively as they are able to follow two part instructions ie stamp your feet and clap your hands.
In nursery we are looking at different ways of how we can look after ourselves and keep healthy. Children have been labelling the different parts of the body and using the language they learn in everyday play ie when they are role-playing doctors and nurses, they ask each other what part of their body is hurting and they point to it and label it correctly. We have learnt new songs to help children learn the names of the different body parts, children have thoroughly enjoyed singing, ‘head, shoulders, knees and toes.’
