Year 1

Music 

Our Music lessons are themed alongside our topic of Dinosaurs. We will build upon on the skills and knowledge in music each week. 

 

In today's session we will be learning how to sing alongside a melody. 

 

Task 1:

 

Today we are thinking about being musicians and singers. What do we need to be good musicians and singers?

Can you make a list of what we would need to be good musicians and singers? 

Possible answers could include ideas such as:

We need ears for listening, eyes for looking at lyrics, mouths for speaking and singing, arms for playing instruments, brains for thinking about what to do and say.


 

 

 

Task 2:

Today we are going to make our own dinosaur song. Let’s recap the dinosaur knowledge we have from our topic lessons. Can you note down anything you can remember from our topic sessions about dinosaurs? For example, the T-Rex has short arms and powerful legs. 
If you need some ideas for Dinosaur information the Dinosaur eBook is below. 
We are going to use this information to make a dinosaur song. Use the link below for your melody and add your dinosaur lyrics to the melody to create your own song. You can send your song lyrics or performance of your song to your class teacher on dojo to earn points.

Mindfulness 

 

Mindfulness focuses on paying attention to the present moment (thoughts and feelings) as well as the world around you. This can improve mental wellbeing. The link below is to a guided deep breathing session in order to support relaxation and mental focus.

R.E (Religious Education)

 

Today we are going to be learning more about Judaism. What can you remember from the lessons we have already done?

We began to explore the importance of Moses and Abraham to Judaism. We also looked at a special symbol for Jewish people- The Star of David. Afterwards, we focused on the place of worship for Jewish people (the Synagogue) and how they show their beliefs.

 

Today we are going to be recapping what we know about Synagogues and then we are going to explore other religious artefacts that are important to Jewish people. 
 

Task 1: 

Recap the information about the Synagogue, you could do this by watching the video link below or look at the PowerPoint resource below "Places of worship Jewish Synagogues".
