We have been working very hard in Orange class at making marks on the new interactive prowise computer. We have been choosing different colours and touching the screen to see all the different marks we can make. It was great fun!!
We have also been working hard on our theme sound. We have been listening to different sounds and what kind of sounds different instruments make. We also listened to lots of different animal sounds. Its been a busy term so far!
We got good news at the start of the term, we had entered the Easkey Scarecrow Festival and we won second prize in the schools section with this fabulous creation…..
So we were delighted.
Now with Halloween a distant memory, we are focussed on our Christmas play. We have been listening to our song and practicing what we will do.
We have been working hard on this terms theme, sound. We listened to both indoor and outdoor sounds and tried to copy them, and guess what they were. We have also been exploring making sounds with various musical instruments.
Hope to see you all at the school play!!
