Year 2 - Spanish

This half term, children in year 2 have been learning the names of various animals in Spanish and have started building sentences using “I have”. They have made their own animal masks and perform their sentences.

Music and Science

This week we were visited by the team from Conductive Music. Their MakersBOOST lessons combined music with science and we explored conductive materials, circuits, makey makey software and music. Using crocodile clip cables, makey makey boards, graphite pencils, fruit, computers and music software, we were able to make our own electronic musical instruments. We learnt how to compose different rhythms using notation and how to play tunes on our homemade instruments. We had a lot of fun!
