Every child in years 2,3 and 4 had the opportunity to work with Dave and Tim to explore sound and music. We explored pattern, rhythm, pulse and tone. We made musical pictures and images and then created and played our own compositions together using a selection of different instruments. Look carefully at the images… What do you think?
We are nearing the end of a fantastic year four and are about to finish your reports. We would like to include your own comments. What have you enjoyed the most about year four? What has been your greatest achievement? What are you most proud of? What would you like to achieve in year five?
What a fantastic day we all had. Your behaviour was excellent and a real credit to the school. Thank-you, we all felt very proud.
Here’s a link to the Great Yorkshire Show.
I thought it might be interesting to find out even more…
What did we learn today? I found out a lot more about Yorkshire. I saw many different places on our journey and I thought some places were very different to Bradford. What did you think? What was your favourite moment? Is there anything you would like to add to your sketchbook?
Now we are all getting ready to go to Nell Bank, why not spend some time finding out about habitats? Try this game and then do your own research about a habitat. It could be a pond, a forest, or a river. It could even be your own street or garden. What sort of organisms (living things) live there?
Can you continue our playscript? Remember to use all the features we discussed. Good luck!
Hansel and Gretel
Belladonna, disguised as a Magpie
Scene Four: Deep in the Forest
In a small farm next to a dark, dark forest
Hansel:It is still dark. Where are we going so early, Father?
Gabriel:To the forest. No noise now. I don’t want to wake Belladonna.
Narrator: As they walked deeper and deeper in to the forest, the father realised that he really should explain his dilemma to his precious children.
(The sound of twigs snapping and an owl hooting)
Gabriel:I’m so very, very sorry children, but there is no longer enough food for us all to eat. Belladonna has decided that you must go. She wants me to take you both deep into the forest and leave you there, forever.
Gretel: But how will we survive without a home? Without food? Without you?
Gabriel (whispering): Listen carefully. I think I have a plan…. Fill your pockets with these white pebbles and drop them behind you as you walk. When the moon rises high in the sky, the pebbles will shine and light your way back home. Good luck children.
