Wow-kelele Class 5!
Class 5 have thoroughly enjoyed this half term's Music lessons and learning to play the eukelele. As you can see, they are improving all the time and have loved being able to incorporate the use of Makaton, when singing along to the music.
To consolidate our learning of last weeks lesson on transport, the children completed a Treasure Hunt Challenge in small groups, by looking for clues to find an anagram. This proved to be a huge success and a more fun way to learn.
We also combined their I.T skills, with their current learning, to give instructions in Spanish to their partners to help them complete a computer game by giving directions.
This half term, to link with our previous topic of "My Town", we are looking at transport and how we use the verb "to go". The children are currently focussed on their Spanish aural work, where they have to listen to the spoken word and recognise the words.
