What have Blue Class been doing this week:
Year 1 are putting verbs into the past tense. They are learning that if a word ends with e, they need to add a d, and if not, add ed. They had lots of ideas for verbs in the present and past tense. They had a further challenge with some more unusual verbs that needed a sentence building too. In music time, the children are learning a very special song about the colours of the rainbow, sung in a different language. Can you guess which language it is? We are still working on arrays, becoming more confident with number of rows or counters.
Every week the children have a singing assembly. Mrs Thorpe and Miss Buckley are our resident music lovers and take the task of choosing songs to perform very seriously. They have chosen some songs for the whole school to sing in our summer concert and the teachers and TAs have chosen some individual songs for each class to perform. Although we have Mrs DaCosta in once a week, music plays a big part in our school life. Mrs DaCosta also shows the children how to play some instruments, including the ukulele and the recorder. Having access to music and particularly instruments, from an early age, fosters a love of music and sometimes performing too. All the different celebrations and performances that the children take part in have their own unique songs. Harvest, Christmas, Easter and the Christmas celebrations come round in a cycle making the childrens’ time here one that has a few long standing traditions.
