Musical Gems is a scheme of work that helps to develop children’s musical and listening abilities.
During Musical Gems we play games, sing songs and use musical instruments to develop our awareness of rhythm, pitch and beat. We also develop our listening, attention and social skills by taking turns, working with others and tuning into sounds. This then helps us in our phonic lessons to hear the sounds we need to read and write.
Musical Gems takes place every Friday in the Reception classes.
