Hi Year 1 😊 How are you all? We hope you have enjoyed the sunshine this week. It has been hot, hot, hot!!! As you can see above we have been busy in school creating a stone snake at each site. We would love it if you could add your own painted pebble to the snake.

Body percussion

You can make music without using instruments.

In this film, the young musicians begin to make music with help from British RnB singer Omar Lye-Fook.

They create their own melodies and rhythms from just the noises they can make with their bodies.

Activity 1:

Practice making sounds with different parts of your body.

Activity 2:

Watch the video to see how to play the Forbidden Rhythm game.

Forbidden Rhythm is a game that helps children develop a sense of pulse as a group.

The game involves you clapping a rhythm and the child repeating it back to you.

It can be adapted to play with one or more child.



Watch the video clips about different habitats.

Activity 1

Make your own habitat

Get creative: draw or make your favourite habitat. Can you include some animals or plants which may live there? What food chain would you find there? Think of including both carnivores and herbivores.
