Xylophones Glockenspiels Glissando!
Wow! Yet another super fun packed week for Meadows!
We have been super busy getting into the ‘Animal Carnival’ spirit and moved our bodies to the beat! We also made some fabulous musical instruments which we used to perform in our Meadow’s Orchestra and to calm our bodies and minds, we took part in some scarf Yoga!
We will continue to build on last weeks focus and enhance our learning environment with more festive activities!
