  • PSHE 

    In PSHE we explored things that are safe and things that are not safe to share online. We took part in a quiz, actively answering questions. We folded our arms when we discussed things that we should keep to ourselves and opened our arms wide if we could share them with others.

    Music 

    One part of our music lesson is to Listen and Appraise the song Let Your Spirit Fly and other songs such as:
    ? Let Your Spirit Fly by Joanna Mangona
    ? Consider Yourself from the musical ‘Oliver!’
    ? Ain’t No Mountain High Enough by Marvin Gaye
    ? You’re The First, The Last, My Everything by Barry

    The children really enjoy exploring the different songs and givingtheir opinions on them. They aslo like listening to try to identify what instruments they can hear in the songs.

    We have learnt and performed the song  Let Your Spirit Fly by Joanna Mangona. Watch this space for our final performance that we will upload.

    We have also been exploring using musical intruments alongside the song. The children really enjpoyed using the glockenspiel.

    We have been very lucky to have a visit from our local Morris dancing group. The children loved it and can't wait to build on our dancing in our next PE dance topic.
