Rainforest Musical

This week Team 5 have been focusing on sounds of the rainforest! We plotted a route along the Amazon River and what sounds we might hear along the way. We decided we would hear rain dripping, wood cutters, trees crashing, animals reacting, rain pouring and tribes people. We then used a variety of instruments to create our own musical with our very own conductor, Miss Walton!

 

We hope you enjoy watching our musical we much as we enjoyed creating it!

Times Tables Workshop

A big thank you to all the parents and carers that attended our maths workshop on Tuesday 8th March. I was really impressed with how everyone got stuck in and had a go at the different games. Well done to Rebecca’s mum (T4) and Darcey’s mum (T5) on winning the Easter eggs!

There are packs available from this session if you were unable to attend but would still like the information please ask me (Miss Denham) and I will get one straight to you.

 

I hope to see many more parents and carers at our next session.

Rainforest masks

Team 5 have been very busy creating their own rainforest masks! The children looked at a range of masks from rainforests around the world then sketched out their own. They used a range of materials to complete their design.
