This week the children have started their music topic. The children have been learning about different genres of music and listening to different instruments. They identified that De La Soul was rap music and that they could hear drums, guitar and trumpets. Today they have been learning how to listen and appraise songs.
This week our topic has been art. We are currently looking at and appreciating the works of Vincent Wan Gogh. Whilst using different coloured pencils to get different tones we used Starry Night painting for our inspiration. Whilst colouring we listened to the soft voice of Don McClean singing Starry Starry Night about the life of Vincent Van Gogh.
As part of our ‘Talk for Writing’ topic we have learnt to retell the story of The Three Billy Goats.
During our ERIC (Enjoying Reading In Class) time today Miss William’s was incredibly kind to bring the children some brand new books.
