Ladybirds

 We have been reading the book "Ladybird on a Bicycle" and doing some art and drama to go along with it. Here are the ladybirds we made.



We made a map of the ladybird's journey from the book "Ladybird on a Bicycle". Here are pictures of the map.

Have some fun with Sound

Thank you to Miss Wynne in 4th class for creating this fun activity. Some of you might find it interesting.

Sound

Foley artists are the people who make sound effects for films, cartoons etc. Their job is to create sound to match the scene; watch this video to see how it’s done.


Task 1: Read the classic children’s story We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.

https://en.calameo.com/read/003334310f5a757af882d   (this is the book online)

Notice where there are opportunities to add sound effects.

Think about the sound and experiment with making the sound.

Try reading the story in a storytelling way (i.e add lots of intonation and interest to your voice)

Add the sounds.

Can you make a recording? 

Take some pictures of what you used for sound.

 

Task 2

Find materials to make the following sounds:

The idea is that you do not go and record the actual sound e.g of wind or fire or a horse, but you use different things to make the sound as realistically as possible

Ø  A horse trotting

Ø  Wind rustling through trees

Ø  A train

Ø  Tiptoeing along a wooden floor

Ø  Birds flapping wings

Ø  An arrow being shot from a bow

Ø  Walking up creaking stairs

Ø  A crackling bonfire

Ø  Can you add to the list?

Friday: Water Safety

Water Safety Lessons


Now that summer is here, it is very important for children to be aware of water safety. This is a short water-safety course that is aimed at the first and second class age-group. Look through the lesson with your child and then give them the quizzes below to see what they have learned. It could save their life some day.


Now that you have completed the water safety lesson, do these quizzes to check what you know.
