Year One had a lovely time in the woods this week. They were very busy, some children made ‘campfires’ and others made ‘leaf soup’ and ‘mud potions’ in the woodlands kitchen. They explored the woodlands for signs of Autumn and we discussed how they thought the woods would look different in each season.

Music makers

Year One have been exploring rap music, we used their bodies to keep up with the pulse of the music. They clapped in time with the pulse, marched along with the pulse and danced along to the pulse. Then we used the xylophones. We talked about the features of the musical instrument, including keys, notes and pitch. Then we used the xylophones to play along with the pulse. They tried hard and enjoyed using the instruments.
