Woodpeckers - Music
This week we have been learning about Jack and the Beanstalk. In our music lesson we created our own musical scores altering the tempo of the music as we played it. Next week we will develop this further by considering the dynamics for each part.
Kingfishers - Mapping Skills
We have been learning about maps in Geography. We used a giant grid to help us move using the compass directions- North, South, East and West to help us reach our destination. We also created our own map to challenge our friends on their directions.
We have been learning about The Great Fire of London and Chinese New Year. We made houses to demonstrate how the flames spread quickly from house to house in the wind. We also made Chinese fans and dragons.
Kingfishers - Swords and Shields
We have been studying materials and their properties in science. We have designed, made and tested swords and shields. We had to think about which materials would be suitable to make these items and why.
Woodpeckers - Gymnastics
We have so much fun developing our gymnastics skills each week with Rob. This week we have developed rolling, jumping, balancing and have used our upper body strength when climbing.
Mrs Newland was very impressed with our improvement since the beginning of the term.
