One of the exciting things that happened in Nursery this week was the children met the beat babies. This is an activity that encourages important speaking & listening, pre-reading and phonic skills. The children are encouraged to take turns and sing a special song, whilst keeping the beat to encourage the beat baby to awaken. The children then have the opportunity to hold the beat baby and pass her around the circle. We are encouraging the children to have ‘kind hands’ and are fostering important social skills which include: waiting patiently, taking turns and sharing and being gentle.
