Sweetpea’s Song Bag!


The Sweetpea’s have loved using our song bag at nursery! The song bag is filled with different objects that relate to a nursery rhyme and the children love looking inside and seeing what they can find.
We start by singing “What’s in our song bag, come and have a look” and the children take turns with their peers and come and choose an object from the bag. Once the have chosen, we encourage the children to guess what it is they have chosen and what song it is they think we should sing. This encourages the children to learn new language and sounds.
We then sit together with our peers and sing a nursery rhyme while doing the actions to the rhyme we our singing. This activity promotes communication skills aswell as social skills as the children develop taking turns and sharing, we also use our fine motor skills while doing different action songs.
Lots of love,
Everyone at Leighs xxx
