What musical learning is there? With the actions there is a lot of the Physical development & Movement, but this can also be done with clapping/stamping and instruments. For nursery, a simple rhythm could be tapped out such as: 1, 2, 3 + 4 Even simpler, just in strict time – 1, 2, 3 etc. Instrument wise you could start with shakers/bells/tambourine, then perhaps move onto other instruments like cabassa or guiro if necessary.

Health and Well-being – Food Learning Experiences I enjoy eating a diversity of foods in a range of social situations. I explore and discover where foods come from as I choose, prepare and taste different foods. Together we enjoy handling, tasting, talking and learning about different foods, discovering ways in which eating and drinking may help us to grow and keep healthy.
