Year One: Linking to our topic, Paws, Claws and Whiskers the children went down to the Jungle! They were encouraged to join in with songs and join in with repeated phrases. They were encouraged to use and move their bodies in the way an animal would and had to think about how to position their body (small , big or tall). The children were introduced to various animal themed songs and were able to join in with them enthusiastically.

In drama, we have continued to take the roles of Mr and Mrs Grinling as well as the seagulls from our class text The Lighthouse Keepers Lunch. The children enjoyed singing various sea related songs and using actions to link to the songs. The children looked at the next part of the story and were encouraged to get the lunch to Mr Grinling as fast as they could so the pesky seagulls could not get it. By the end of the session, the children had a better understanding of the story and how various characters may act in certain situations.
