Arts Week Drama with Mrs Grant and Mrs Turner

This week we had an Arts rotation with the Year 1 teachers. 
Mrs Grant and Mrs Turner got us to use some great Drama techniques called Freeze Frame, mirroring and role play.

We listened to the story "Funny Bones" by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. It is about 3 skeletons, one is a dog skeleton. They try to find someone to scare at night time.  The skeletons can't find anyone to scare so they end up scaring each other.

Tinker Time

This week we have been using Tinker Time a lot in the classroom. 
We had a go at using Osmo on the iPads. We had some children who learnt how to do it very quickly!




We also had some time with Beebot. We had to code him to get to different letters of the alphabet.
