Fun with Drumsticks

This week Mrs Howells came in to Nursery with some drumsticks. We had lots of fun singing and tapping!

What we didn’t know is that this kind of play is helping to develop rhythm, pattern awareness and cross body co-ordination which helps us to do all sorts of things like holding a pencil and recognising patterns in words and sounds. It also improves our ability to follow instructions and to listen carefully. But mostly, we just had fun moving and making noise!
