Exploring animals through drama

We listened to music from ‘Carnival of the Animals’ by Camille Saint-Saens and used our bodies to show which animal we were. The pieces were ‘Elephant’, ‘The Aviary’ and ‘Kangaroo’. Later we imagined we could move and sound like different animals and we had to find our animal partner. We had so much fun!

Here are some links to the pieces we listened to and a couple more:

Time Travel Quiz

Today we used the Socrative app to do a quiz about what we’d learned this half term. We also had facts around us which we could use to help us when we read them carefully. It was challenging but great fun!
