Friday 15th September 2017 - Music with Mrs. Baker

Mrs. Baker came into school today to teach us music. We used paper plates to help us create music. We learnt all about musical notes that were worth 1 beat, 2 beats and 4 beats. We then used these to create bars of music that had 4 beats in them.

Wednesday 13th September 2017 - Roald Dahl Day

Today is Roald Dahl's 101st birthday! Roald Dahl wrote so many wonderful children's book: my favourite is Matilda. We spent the morning looking at the fantastic descriptive writing in the books, and thinking about Matilda's special power. We acted out what we would want our special power to be, and then wrote equally fantastic descriptions. Then, in the afternoon, we watched Revolting Rhymes to gain inspiration for writing rhyming poetry, and the live link found here.

Friday 8th September 2017 - Outdoor Art

Today, we went to explore the outdoor area. We worked independently to collect a range of natural materials and create a piece of artwork. See if you can guess what we have made.

Thursday 7th September 2017 - Brass Taster Session
