Children in Need
Thank you to everyone for coming in dressed up and for your kind donations to Children in Need! Keep an eye on the school Facebook page to see how much we raised!
We have been learning about writing instructions. We had a go at following a set of instructions to make a balloon drum. We decided that instructions need to have pictures, numbered steps and a list of equipment. The kingfishers said that instructions also need to be clear or things might go wrong!
For our sparkling start we watched Stomp! which inspired us to make our own music. We started by walking around the school grounds finding different everyday objects that make a noise. We then became geographers and used a map of the school to plot our journey and mark where we found interesting sounds. In the afternoon we formed our own kitchen band and made music using items such as spoons, trays and a biscuit tin!
