The children in Year 1 enjoyed using the percussion instruments and explored how they made a sound. We then played our instruments loudly and softly. We experimented with different instruments.
We went to the woodland to listen to rainforest sounds to help us to experience what it would be like in a rainforest.
A great time was had by all! We danced, played pass the parcel and musical statues. Thank you for all the party food supplied.
Thank you to all the parents that attended.
The children learnt about the Hindu festival Diwali. They made diva lamps from clay and listened to the story of Rama and Sita. Mrs Fletcher showed us photographs and told us about when she lived in India. We danced to Indian music, made Diwali cards and did you know Diwali means ‘row of lights’?
Year 1 used the I pads to abc search for things beginning with letters of the alphabet. The children really enjoyed searching the internet independently.
