We loved using the musical instruments to add music to the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. We discussed the different elements of the music needed and created these elements with the percussion instruments!
We listen to a live streaming of a story called ‘What do Monsters Munch?’ We joined in with the actions and even got 4 of our ideas read out by the presenter!
After the reading we were told about a competition to win a Giglets class box with helpful reading prizes in. If anyone would like to enter this competition you need to design a monster cake. This could be a drawing, painting or 3D model (Lego or junk modelling possibly?). If you do want to do this please bring in your entry of the Monday after half term. Happy creating!
For literacy enrichment day, we looked at ly and simile sentences then used these to write some poetry about autumn. In the afternoon, we then created artwork to accompany our poems. We really enjoyed our day.
We have had a wonderful morning of wellbeing activities. The children have loved developing their circus skills, painting symmetrical butterflies, modelling with playdough, playing games and baking cupcakes!
We have created a meadow as a class. We drew minibeasts that would live in the meadow and thought about the different habitats within the meadow. We are a team of conservationists, that have been asked to find out about and take care of the minibeasts in the meadow.
