Early Years Magazine - Issue 6musical notes

This month’s magazine has a definite musical flavour. Did you know that every nursery day begins with a song in Sweden? Jenny Goddard focuses on maths through music, rhythm and rhyme, and we take a look at the Spring 2010 issue of the DCSF Early Years magazine, subtitled The Music Issue. This month’s research article focuses on encouraging you to undertake some action research of your own. Will we be reading about your project in a future issue? 


Editor's Entrée
Explore two musical education charities and their work with young children. Find out about the forthcoming National Day Nurseries Association Conference and how you might study for Early Years Professional Status.
Ideas Box
We've set up the Ideas Box at your request so we'd love to hear your ideas for resources, activities and actions in the Early Years.
Focus on...Maths through music, rhythm and rhyme
Jenny Goddard highlights the fact that many of our early songs focus on subtraction, and suggests that we should begin children’s journeys into the world of mathematics by consolidating their knowledge of number names and their values and developing a facility with these concepts, before we begin more advanced mathematical processes like subtraction.
R4U - Research for You
For this month only, R4U is focusing on Research by you, RbyU. The NCETM offers you the opportunity and the funding to carry out your own mathematics research project. Read about what is on offer and put your application in.
Case study
Lesley Webb, Early Years Adviser at the London Borough of Newham takes a look at using Treasure Baskets with babies for rich sensory experiences through exploratory play.
