Beat Bang Boogie!
Bah-dum TISH! Let Spring term begin!
We have invited a drummer to school and the children will see how the drummer’s hands and feet work at different times and in different ways. Can the children do the same? Your children will be performing for you so tune in to their stirring sounds and beats. The children will find out the difference between pulse, rhythm and perfect pitch. They’ll be listening carefully to explore how different rhythmic patterns are created and developed.
We will also be making our own instruments throughout the term.
So watch out for your invitations and get ready to move to the beat bang boogie!
This Spring term it's going to get messy!!
Our topic is Muck, Mess and Mixture. We will be having a ‘Messy mixtures afternoon’! This will allow the children to experience a variety of weird and wonderful mixtures that they can feel with their hands and feet. Create messy mixtures from cornflour and water, paint, jelly, shaving foam, body lotion, soap flakes and clay. The children will be able to ladle, pour, touch and explore with their senses (but no tasting). We will be asking the children to come to school in old clothes and be prepared to get messy!
There will be a lot of artwork this term. In literacy we will be writing our version of George's Marvelous Medicine and having a go at making our own marvelous mixtures.
