Our music this term has been based on the pop song Happy by Pharrell Williams. We've listened and appraised to other songs with a similar theme and made comparisons. Using the glockenspiels, we performed and composed our own music to accompany the song. Here is a clip of us singing the song with our composition.
The Kensuke class have made a fantastic start to Year 6 and we're really pleased with the way the children have settled back into school life after the long summer break. We've been busy reading our class book - Kensuke's Kingdom - and taking part in learning activities based on the story. In writing lessons we've explored the main characters and will write a biography based around the main character. We've been exploring vocabulary and making predictions during our guided reading time. We've used our sketching, cutting, painting and pastel skills to produce some fabulous art work inspired by the book.
