Travelling to the Arctic
This week our rocket has taken us to the Arctic. We have learnt about animals that live there. We have read a story about a polar bear and we wrote our own stories about a polar bear too. We all got very cold playing with some ice!
We listened to some ' Nasa Space Sounds' - https://www.youtube.com/watch?=Qr4BnW_GlfU Then we created our own piece of music, telling the story of a rocket's space adventure. We drew some pictures (see below) to show the things that we could meet on our space journey and this became our 'musical score!' We then created sounds using our voices to represent the different parts of the journey - video to follow! Why don't you ask your child to do a performance for you at home...
Thank you to 'Help a Hedgehog Hospital' (http://helpahedgehog.org/index.php) who came into school and taught us all about hedgehogs. We were very excited when they introduced us to one of their hedgehogs 'Ward.' Thank you to all the parents who sent in the donations of cat food, they were very gratefully received. After the visit, the Year 1s wrote some facts that they had learnt in their English books, some children chose to make Hedgehog pictures using forks to make 'spines' or leaves to make hedgehog beds and we even sang a song about hedgehogs. I've attached the words so that you can sing along at home!
