Learning About Occupations!


Recently we’ve been learning a lot about different occupations which has been so much fun! The Snapdragons have loved making their own musical instruments and role playing bands. They used their fine motor skills to transfer the different objects into the sensory bottles to make their own shakers. They then experimented with different sized elastic bands over tissue boxes to make guitars. We spoke about how the sound changed depending on how we manipulated the materials.
The children loved joining in with this activity and took turns in sharing the instruments! They were very pleased with what they made and communicated this beautifully with their friends!
Lots of love,
Leigh and the team xx
