    Music - Appraisal

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    Today we leant the second half of our song. We thought carefully about how we need to sit properly so we can produce our best singing voices. At the beginning of the session we listened to 'The Fresh Prince of Bel Air' by Will Smith. We reviewed the song by thinking about what we liked and disliked and Year 1 thought carefully about it today - "I liked the song because it made everyone dance".

    Not a Stick - Painting

    Posted by Miss L Heward
    After exploring the book 'Not a Stick' in the morning, we actually used sticks just like the main character... as paintbrushes! We could only use sticks for our paintings and thought about how it helps us to create different textures.

    In music, Class 1 began learning they words to the song 'Hey You!'. We began with learning the rap section and will move on to learning the singing verse. We also listened to another hip hop song 'Me, Myself and I' by De La Soul. Year 1 really enjoyed dancing and finding the beat to this song!
