Love Music Trust spent the morning with us today. We composed a piece of music based on the book Lost Words. We learnt about dynamics, crescendo, texture, timbre and mood. We also learnt about ostinato which is when phrases are repeated.
Today Year 5 visited Barclays Bank in Northwich. We learnt about using ATMs, PIN numbers, cash back, cheques, direct debits and standing orders. We also learnt about life skills including: self-esteem and confidence, assertiveness and how our emotions and reactions dictate our outcomes. We had a tour and saw lots of employees working mainly on the telephones to customers.
This morning was our last time Reception visited Trinity Church Cafe as part of their project ‘As Time Goes By’.
The children talked about how they have grown and changed so much in their first year at school.
The children and adults made face biscuits and enjoyed eating them at snack time too!
There were some birthdays today too…it was Judith and Judith birthday. So we celebrated with a birthday cake for them and we all sang Happy Birthday.
We finished our session with our Rhyme Time. The children also performed their Teddy Bear Rock n Roll song and dance for everybody.
The children had made a card to thank Derek for letting us spend time and activities with everybody at Trinity Cafe.
During this Summer Term the children in EYFS have had music lessons delivered by Love Music Trust as part of our learning in Expressive Arts and Design. The project has been based around the character of Barney Bear at the Seaside. The children have learnt lots of different songs and music skills.
On Friday to celebrate our learning and development within the area of music Reception and Nursery went to take part in a celebration concert at Clonter Opera and a Teddy Bears Picnic. The children all had a great time and they performed in the celebration concert brilliantly.
Yesterday the children in Reception went to their next As Time Goes By session at Trinity Church.
The children took along some games to play with the adults. All children and adults enjoyed playing the games.
