This Set of Maracas will support children’s coordination as they play and experiment with the sounds that these traditional musical instruments create – moving their bodies as they dance to a beat and rhythm. As children explore percussion instruments they will begin to recognise the texture of sound and the tone an object makes.
The music provision is an invaluable area for active learning. Exploring sound, dance and rhythm is a highly creative experience where children can express their ideas and feelings through another media.
Boost creative expression and support personal, social and emotional development in your classroom with this inviting early years resource set.
