We invite you to browse the following sites and resources to select some music activities that are appropriate for your tamariki. We encourage you to include some music in every aspect of your programme.
Our focus through this time is on Well-being/ Mana Atua in order to ease the stress some children may be experiencing and to bring some joy.
Many of the goals in Te Whāriki can be met through a rich and diverse music programme.

An important focus of music learning in the early years is an understanding of and experience in the elements of music. These elements can be experienced through the aspects of music, listening, singing, playing, creating, moving and reading and recording.
We encourage you to view Nathan Wallis’ video about why it is so important to embrace the arts during this time.
We also encourage you to review the ‘Best Online Safety Tips’ from Netsafe for home learning with your child.
