Happy New Year! This half term we will be learning all about the Anglo-Saxons in our learning adventure: Tales Around the Table. The children loved creating shields, swords, flags and crowns on the first day back and they are engaging with our learning brilliantly. We've started learning about the myth of King Arthur and the children are looking forward to another exciting drama workshop with Alive and Kicking next week.
We're having loads of fun so far this half term. Everyone loved the drama workshop with Alive and Kicking and we're doing some great writing as a result, such as diary entries in role as a knight, instructions on how to be a great knight and our very own quest story. This week, we were also lucky enough to take part in a Dogs Trust workshop where we learnt all about how best to take care of dogs. In music, everyone has been loving our new Boomwhackers...keep an eye out for a video of us playing them!
We've been watching examples of songs that can be performed using boomwhackers as inspiration.
