Other areas of the curriculum.
In PE we have been using our skills of timing and coordination to throw and catch small pieces of equipment such as small balls, beanbags and quoits.
In music we continued with our exploration of our voices, and we also started using actions to experience a steady beat.
In assembly we were learning about how to ‘take a moment’ when we feel stressed or angry.
In the book Polly Jean Pyjama Queen, the animals all have very special pyjamas. We enjoyed designing pyjamas that show something special about us.
We also discussed how we would like to learn more about animals and we planned some questions. We will begin to work on finding the answers to some of these questions next week.
