This week in Music, KS1 have listened to the song Hey you and have started to learn how to perform it as a rap. They have clapped different rhythms and created their own to perform to the rest of the class. Next week, we will be starting to learn Nativity songs ready for our performance in December. Some children will be bringing lines home to learn so please can you practise these with your child.
In computing, KS1 learnt how to identify someone that they can trust e.g., someone that they know such as a parent or teacher or a police officer. Here is the link to the cartoon we watched if you would like to watch and discuss trustworthy adults with your child Hector's World Ep.2 - Bing video
In science, KS1 identified different types of crocodilians and investigated how they have adapted to their environment. In outdoor science, KS1 went on a hunt not for reptiles but for an amphibian...newts! Just a reminder, as the weather becomes colder, please could you send hats and gloves for outdoor learning on a Wednesday.
In history, KS1 are continuing to research about Walter Tull and this week have found out about his childhood.
