Beat Band Boogie
This half term, we’ll be stepping in time to the beat and learning all about music. We’ll listen to a music ensemble, identify pulse, rhythm and pitch, and move in time to the music. Leading and following instructions will help us make percussion instruments and we’ll also design our own. We’ll learn nursery rhymes including The Grand Old Duke of York and read the story of The Little Tin Soldier. Our bodies will turn into instruments as we try to master the art of body percussion. We’ll learn lots of new songs and write lyrics and tunes of our own.
‘Muck, Mess and Mixtures’
This half term our topic is 'Muck, Mess and Mixtures'. We’ll have a messy afternoon to create crazy concoctions and marvellous mixtures. We’ll enjoy the story of George’s Marvellous Medicine and write recipes, leaflets, lists and stories of our own. We’ll use our science skills to explore everyday materials, investigate soap products and understand why mixtures freeze and melt. We’ll taste a wide variety of foods, learn about healthy eating and follow recipes to make some yummy treats including smoothies and ice cream! Our artwork will also rely on our mixing skills. We’ll use marbling inks to make unusual patterns, create food landscapes inspired by Carl Warner, paint with ice cubes, model clay into exciting shapes and use a variety of materials to make mixed media collages.
This term Mrs Sibson will be teaching the class Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning, and Mrs Cartwright will be teaching the class Wednesday afternoon, Thursday and Friday.
