We began our lesson by listening to the introduction of 'The Carnival of the animals' by Saint Saens, and thinking about how the music helped us to picture different animals. Then we used a range of instruments to explore different sounds we could make. We are aiming to make our own musical compositions by the end of Term.
We listened to the bible story of Noah's Ark and acted it out. We then helped to make a huge rainbow and drew pairs of animals to go in the ark. It was a colourful afternoon!
Quentin Blake Art
This afternoon the children were learning about the illustrator Quentin Blake. They looked at some examples of his work in the stories of Roald Dahl and watched a video clip to see how he creates his magnificent pictures. The children then had a go, following the same process and have produced some fantastic water colouring pictures. Next term we will display these in the corridor to celebrate their artistic achievements.
