The children have been learning a song in Music over the last few weeks called 'Big Bear Funk'. They thought about how they could move their bodies to the music and also how instruments could be incorporated into the performance.
The children in Badgers class were exploring the different shapes they would make with their body, how they could move when they were in these shapes and if they could balance on a piece of apparatus in one of the shapes. The children tried to make themselves as tall, small and wide as possible as well as exploring travelling over and under the apparatus.
The children in Badgers class have been learning the story 'We're Going on a Bear Hunt' as part of their theme 'Let's Pretend'. Over the course of the week they created backdrops for different parts of the story and added actions to the words. Here is the final performance of the story including scenery changes and actions.
This week in PE the children had to pretend to be stars. They used their bodies to represent a star with five points (head, 2 arms and 2 legs) and then twinkled around the school hall. They then put the movements they had been practicing to a piece of music.
