Stan and Mabel

We are very proud of our work so far.

We have also worked hard on our Stan and Mabel sketches. We have been learning shading techniques and how to add lots of detail to our work:

What an incredible experience . . .

This afternoon, as part of our music case study, we have been lucky enough to give the children the most incredible experience. We have had a visit from one of our fantastic parents, Mr Lamb – who just so happens to be a very talented Opera Singer.

He shared with the children his life as a singer, taught us some vocal exercises, talked about singing all over the world and performed a piece from Carmen for us.

The children and staff are feeling very lucky to have had such a magical experience as part of our expedition.

Hook Week Fun

We are having great fun learning all about music this week. We have enjoyed listening and dancing to Abba songs (our musician of the week). We have also made our own songs up and have been exploring musical instruments. We are looking forward to an exciting expedition this term.

XP on tour!

Today, we were really lucky, Geoff and Dave came to perform for us. We really enjoyed experiencing live music. We even got to join in and become musicians – we sang a Beatles song!

Musician of the Week

As I’m sure the children have told you – as part of this expedition, one of our ongoing case studies is going to be Music. To help us ensure the children are exposed to a wide range of musicians and genres, both past and present, we are going to be having a musician of the week.

We will be listening to music from the artist/s each morning as the children enter the classroom and we will be learning more about the artist as the week goes on.

Each week we will add a playlist to our website and ClassDojo pages, this will enable you to share in the Musician of the Week and listen along at home too!

We had a great time this morning dancing around the classroom to our first musician/s – Abba!
