In Topic, we have learnt about the life of another nurse, Edith Cavell. We learnt how in a war situation she cared for soldiers injured from both sides. The children enjoyed acting out caring scenes from her life.
In music, we continued to learn about strong and weak beats found in music using African drums, claves and our bodies to march and move to different beats of 2,3 and 4. The children enjoyed acting as the class conductor. Conductor Harrison's rather speedy beat of 2 kept us alert!
In art with Mrs Mottram, we have made a coil pot from clay which we painted on Friday. I have been so impressed how the children's skills using clay has progressed over this half term.
Finally PE, I wish I remember to take pictures form Mr Barnes' and my PE lessons. I'll try to next week. In my Thursday Playground Athletics lesson, the children have been improving their pull and push throwing skills. Using the foam javelins to throw using the pull techniques, children are improving. Special mention to Lucas who threw over 8 metres.
