Today we listened to different types of music. We heard sounds that were loud and quiet. We also talked about how we could make with our voices load and quiet. We then looked at  sounds around the environment and sorted them into a set of  loud and quiet sounds. We made up some fantastic tunes …

Over this half term we have learnt a lot about ‘Ourselves.’ We have settled well in to our new school environment, made new friends, talked about our families and celebrated how unique we all are.  Today we made our own little faces talking about all the different features.

This week we have designed our own puppets. We worked in small groups and talked about the texture, colour and features of our designs. We then acted out our own stories and made a puppet theatre using the blocks.  

Today Wrens and Robins got together for some festive cheer.  The children worked together to make marshmallow snowmen. The children were really excited and worked well as a team.  It was lovely to see the Christmas spirit. Well done everyone.
