WILLOW - Y5/Y6
Making Taotie Masks
The taotie is a motif commonly found on Shang and Zhou dynasty ritual bronzes. We started by making them out of clay first and then pouring plaster over the mould, before pulling the faces out.
Production of Peter Pan
Ines recently won the 'Best Supporting Actor' award when she took part in the Henley Drama Festival with her drama group. Well done and congratulations. Ines said it was an amazing experience and the adjudicators were really tough.
Learning the Recorder
Throughout the weeks of playing the recorder, we have learned how to position our hands and play note A and B. Every week we have been taken out in small groups and have enjoyed playing the recorders with our lovely teacher assistant (Mrs Venny).
We have been practising some songs e.g. bouncing balls, apples and bananas and the airplane song.
Also, we have been taught about tonguing and how to move from note A to note B in a song.
This has been a great experience and very educational. By Poppy & Katya.
