W/B 12.02.24 - Music


We have been concentrating on using our voices and changing the pitch of our voice. We have sung a variety of songs and followed the pitch and changed accordingly. 

We drew a line that was to represent our voices and then made a noise like a bird following the pitch being dictated by the line.

The children in shark class have been learning about emails and how they are used to communicate. They are progressing on opening, composing and sending emails. 

The children received a special email from Mrs Westley to help her track down the cake thief! In groups the children composed their own reply on a shared laptop. They then as a class wrote a reply and sent it. We are awaiting another email - it is very exciting!
