For our last few weeks before the summer holidays, our songs were based around the topic of music and movement - the kind of songs that don't really fit in with other topics but are great fun to sing and move about to :0)
The songs I chose for this topic were: ainsi font, Sur le pont d'Avignon, enroulez le fil (wind a bobbin), dans mon chateau un robot vit and regarde les petits lapins (sleepy bunnies). We also looked at the song petit papa in hounor of Fathers' Day.
Our crafts for this topic included making our own shakers, the children had lots of fun filling empty plastic bottles with rice, pasta, cut up straws, lentils and split peas and then decorating them with items from the craft boxes. And of course, they were a great musical accompaniment to our singing :0)
To accompany the song 'enroulez le fil' (wind a bobbin) we had lots of fun making patterns with paint by printing and rolling cotton reels on paper :0)
Our robot song required a robot craft and we used shapes to create our own robot pictures :0)
Ainsi font is a song about puppets (les marionettes) and so our craft had to be making puppets. These felt glove puppets were ready stitched for our little ones to decorate :0)
And what could possibly be better to make Daddy for Fathers' Day than a crown? Here are our fabulous creations :0)
Classes have now restarted for the autumn term and our new topic is "sous la mer" (under the sea).
Happy singing and crafting :0)
