We have had a super last day of term! Here’s what P4/5/6 have been kept busy with!
First thing, we all did a Double Doodle Soft Start activity. Double Doodling is a great way to be creative, relax and stay in the present moment, only concentrating on where you want to guide your two pens. You draw with a pen in each hand and use them simultaneously. What one pen draws, the other mirrors. This activity is a fantastic way to engage both sides of the brain so is particularly useful before written or reading tasks. Why not watch the clip in the link and try this at home too!
Once our brains were active, we continued to write our National Poetry Day poems. We are still typing these up but hope to share them with you soon. Here are some starting lines to whet your appetite!
If music had the power to heal the world I would … play the piano and the piano should give the world hope. (Scott)
If music had the power to heal the world I would play every note, sing every song.
Think of the words to nature’s tune. (Georgia)
Every time a note is struck on an acoustic guitar,
A bit of litter is replaced with sand, so fine and smooth. (Ruben)
We were in for a musical treat after break when Joy came to do drumming with us. We even managed a dance outside as we moved and drummed to a Swahili song.
The afternoon saw us reflecting on what we’d enjoyed about Term 1 and what we need to keep working on next term.
Then we got the oil pastels out and created a moonlit sky background ready for a Halloween picture first week back.
It’s been a pleasure spending this term with you all! Have a wonderful holiday!
