We have loved starting our art project by testing out different types of paints, water colour washes and vivid colours. We are looking to building up our skills to create some Edward Tingatinga themed art.
We loved our last session of the year in Skip to be Fit. The children were giving their all in our Box to be Fit session! Well done everyone!
We are loving Times Tables Rock Stars! The children enjoyed having a practise in our Friday games morning. Make sure you are practising at home so that the children can build up their scores, the children will move onto the next timetable when the system recognises that the children are competent at the times table they are practising.
Sparrows loved listening to Mrs Watkinson and Samuel play the piano. The children loved having a go at themselves! What a special treat!
This week the children had a go with an Indian drum. We loved listening to some authentic Indian music and having a go at beating the drum to the music. Even Freddie our music mascot got involved.
In science, we learned all about germs. We used glitter to show how quickly germs can spread diseases. We then tried to get rid of the ‘germs’ with just paper towels, just water and then soap and water.
We found that the best way to get rid of germs is to use soap and water.
I wonder if the children can tell you how to wash their hands so that they are hygienic?
In English, we had a go at retelling one of our favourite class books by acting out the whole story!
The children are loving using the games bench, today we played snakes and ladders 🐍🪜
Today, we had our second music session with Mrs Watkinson. The question of the week was “Can you make rhythm sequences?”
We made different rhythm sequences and then performed the sequences by clapping the pattern or using various instruments.
The children were so brilliant at remembering the names of all of the instruments they used last week. I wonder if they can tell you all about the instruments they used?
On Wednesday we had our first music session of the half term with Mrs Watkinson. The question of the week was “can you sing different pitches: high, middle and low?”
We explored pitch and rhythm using lots of different instruments and our voices.
