Welcome to Pine, Almond and Lily classes ...


Much of our key information can be found in the 'Transition to Year One' presentation and the 'Meet the KS1 Teaching Team' presentation which includes staff, topics for the year, maths, reading, writing, spelling, homework, PE and contact information.

Our Autumn 2 Topic - Beat Band Boogie!

Here comes the marching band. Left, right, left, right. Step in time to the beat: 1, 2, 3, 4; let's make sounds, high and low. That sound is loud. That one’s quiet. What can you hear? There are sounds all around. What’s making each one? Name all the instruments in the band and be part of a ‘body orchestra’. Pat your knees, clap your hands, tap your feet, let’s move to the beat. Now march up the hill with the Grand Old Duke of York, beating your drum or shaking your shaker. Then it’s time to perform. Your audience loves you, so let’s take a bow.

Making Instruments which can play different volumes and pitches

We waited for the fuse to burn by playing to a slow beat. The tempo got quicker and the volume increased as the firework flew up. It all went silent before the firework suddenly exploded!

Exploring materials - the fun way!

After exploring the materials, we had our first go at animating some clay.  We have reviewed our work, thought of improvements and we hope to implement these soon.


The children asked if they could do this at home, which they can.  Just download the free app 'I can animate' Lite and have a go!
