Hello Beech Class,
I hope you are all keeping well. Thank you for all of your emails this week, it’s great to see the hard work that you have been doing! I’m so proud of you all.
It has been lovely to speak to so many of you and your families on the phone this week, if I’ve not managed to speak to you yet I will be calling! Lots of you mentioned enjoying the BBC Bitesize videos, they are lots of fun so I’d definitely recommend watching those if you can!
It’s been so nice to hear about all of the things you have been getting up to; learning French, learning about space, baking and cooking, growing plants, taking care of animals, teaching younger siblings and one of our friends from Beech Class has even built a table! All of this on top of the challenges I am setting you! WOW!
Keep up all of your hard work! I can’t wait for you to all share your new skills with each other (and me!) when we get back to school!
Keep yourself active with your maths this week!
This week we are going to be thinking about music. We are going to be listening and concentrating on music. We will be exploring how music makes us feel and what it makes us think about.
I have added a video of some of the pieces of music that we would have listened to together at school but you could also choose some music that you enjoy too. I would like you to listen to the pieces of music and as you listen draw some doodles. Doodles are like little pictures, they could be of characters, a scene or setting or just lines that show how the music changes. You could do this for lots of different pieces of music, you could even ask your parents to share some of their favourite music with you. Enjoy the music! Dance and move with the music!
The first piece I have added is the full version of 'The Carnival of the Animals'. If we were listening to this in class I wouldn't show you the video and I would ask you to guess which animal you think each section is about. If you can, try not to look at your screen while you're listening to it!
In your literacy this week I would like you to write about how the music you have listened to made you feel. I would like you to think about the feeling words you have talked about with Mrs Kyne and use those to describe how the music made you feel. You might write, ‘It made me feel excited’ or ‘It made me feel scared’. Really think about the phonics you know and use the sound mat in the pack to help you to sound out the words that you would like to use in your sentences.
Last weekend, the weather was so beautiful! I spent lots of time out in my garden. While in the garden, we decided to play some games, we played some tennis, croquet and had a penalty shootout. We decided to keep score of who won each game. Take a look at my score card.
Keep up the hard work!
