Welcome back! This term we are learning about farms and we will be growing vegetables and flowers in our planting beds. These are in the playground outside Chesterfield and London class. This week we have planted carrot seeds and French marigolds. It was really hard work to prepare the planting beds but we worked as a team and created a perfect environment for our veg and flowers to grow in.
This term we will have a focus on music with a new music area in London class and during topic work your child will be playing a range of musical instruments including multi-cultural instruments. We are really lucky to be working with Bridged Fraser from the Derby and Derbyshire Music Education Partnership. She will visit our school to deliver the Musical Gems workshops where your children will improve their sense of the music around them. Children will be introduced to key musical concepts including:
Pulse - keeping a steady beat
Rhythm - patterns of sound a silence
Tempo - awareness of musical speed
Pitch - distinction of high and low notes
Dynamics - distinction of loud and quiet
Silence - awareness of no sound at all.

Children in FS2 have had lots of fun this week reading Aliens Love Underpants. We have looked at the rhyming words in the story and thought of our own rhyming words. We are going to be using our imaginations to act out parts of the story at the end of the week.
Looking forward to next week
Next week are looking forward to making Rudolph out of play dough, playing with figures in a snow scene, decorating a tree branch to look snowy and icy, sorting 2D shapes and lots more..
We will be learning about winter festivals and focusing on the Jewish Festival of light Hanukka. You could use books and the internet to find out how Hanukka is celebrated and about the menorah which is a special type of candle holder.
