Orange Class have been enjoying their weekly lessons in the music studio. We usually start these sessions by listening to some relaxing music. Sensory material is available to help the children to feel comfortable in the studio.
Each class member is then asked to describe the music that they have heard. We use the Picture Exchange Communication system for this exercise. A verbal response is also encouraged by Miss G and her music team.
Each class member then takes it in turn to welcome their friends to the lesson using the African drums. We bang out the number of syllables in the names of our friends as the drum is passed around the room.
The Picture Exchange Communication system is then used once again to ask for an instrument. The Turney music studio has a large selection. The Orange Class children are asked to make a choice, and also to think about sharing the resources.
