Over the past few weeks, children have been supported to create their own musical instruments. Having already explored music and movement, children were introduced to a range of instruments from around the world. They experimented how sounds were made: looking, listening and touching carefully.
Children were then encouraged to think about and talk about their ideas. They planned and designed what they wanted to do, researching and mark making. Finally they made their own instruments using a range recyclable materials. Children revisited many methods and tools they had used previously. Some children showed they had mastered joining skills: using the hot glue gun ,PVA glue, string, tape and bands.
Let’s make some music together!
Are you going to make an instrument you can shake, strum, blow or tap?
