We have kicked off Black History Month by inviting back friends of the Nursery, the Iroko Drummers. Children were introduced to the djembe drums and had time to explore playing the drums as well as listen to them being skilfully played by the musicians. Some children heard the story of Fanta and all children danced, listening to rhythms and beats. The children all displayed the willingness to have a go at something new, share their ideas and responded to what they saw and heard with excitement.
We also have stories in different language planned, cooking experiences and more music when our families are coming into nursery to work with children and share their skills and knowledge.
