Welcome to Willow, Rowan and Olive
The children had a great time exploring the many different modes of transport London has developed from past to present. After getting hands on with special objects from the museum collection, they had the opportunity to build their own bus for London’s future!
Today Year 2 went to the Barbican to watch the London Symphony Orchestra perform. They learned about the sections of the orchestra and sang songs with an orchestral accompaniment!
London’s Burning! Rowan class created their own Tudor houses just like those built in London in 1666. They worked together in pairs to cut out windows, attach doors that open and attach the roof securely. When they were finished, we took them outside to burn just like in the real Great Fire of London! The houses were very close together and although the weather was not as hot or dry, the wind was strong so our fire spread quickly. Luckily Mr Paul was on hand with his hose to put the fire out!
Rowan Class have learnt to sing ‘London’s Burning’ both in unison and a four part round. This week they began to learn how to play the song on the glockenspiel and it’s sounding good already!
