Year 4 - Mrs Noakes

A fantastic day of music, rhythm and beat

Literacy unit in Year 4 with the aim of writing an information text about drums of all types. What a marvellous excuse to have a drum workshop. We had a great day – my son , whose school was closed that day, came in and shared his drumming skills. Then the ukulele tutor arrived with his violin and gave us an impromptu concert, which resulted in impromptu dancing! In the afternoon, when Year 3 joined us, one pupil’s grandparents arrived with a didgeridoo and various instruments from their travels. A fantastic day of music, rhythm and beat – the children claimed they had done no work!!

Light and Shadows

At last the sun put in an appearance on Friday. As we have Light and Shadows as our topic in Year 3 & 4 the dreary overcast skies of January have been a nuisance. We were outside like a shot and had great fun changing the shape and size of our shadows and working in pairs to draw around the shadows of our working partners.
