We have learned a lot from our story 'Superworm' this week. Superworm was great at helping others, we though about how we could do this too. We also used our listening skills to help us identify rhyming words. This week we have been exploring pitch, we can make our voices higher and lower to create effect. We enjoyed using 'Garage Band' to create and change our own sounds.
Measuring the different length superworms.
We had to practise cutting curved lines to make these look good.
Superhero H Q to the rescue!!
Making dragons for Chinese New Year.
We are getting good at reading and making words.
We had to try and roll in a straight line.
We practiced bouncing at our own feet.
Then we bounced the ball to our partner.
We tried closer together and further apart to find which was easier.
What do you think the characters in the story are saying?
Ordering the worms starting with the longest.
We explored ways to make 10.
Name making using carpet tiles.
Using garage band to explore pitch on the iPads.
We listened carefully so that we could hear the changes in pitch in our compositions.
Wearing red for Velindre.
Our red hearts for the people we love.
In R1 we have continued learning through collaboration. 'Superworm' was a inspirational book to influence our thinking. We are learning both within and across areas as we build connections within our learning and combine different experiences, knowledge and skills. The children in our class have thrived from learning through play and experiential learning. The book 'Superworm' was a great starting point and children knew the words as Mr Lock read the story. Energy was generated by the text and music and drama have filled our week. Beyond this we improved our personal ability physically in games and mentally by halving and making doubles. There is so much more, but here is a little look…
