Don’t worry be happy

The next song we have looked at in music was ‘Don’t Worry, Be Happy’ by Bobby McFerrin. We spoke about the song as a class and compared it to our unit song.
Seth said that the song made him feel happy and was all about happiness.
Dehwa said the song reminded him of the beach.
Paige and Charlie both said that the song made them feel calm and relaxed.
For the rest of our music lesson we played some rhythm games, practised our singing and starting improvising using the glockenspiels.

‘On Top of the World’

Year 6 are enjoying music lessons this term. They listened to and appraised the song ‘On Top of the World’ by the Carpenters.
The children enjoyed the song and said it was similar to our unit song, Happy by Pharrell Williams, because they are both about feeling happy with yourself and the world around you.
Ryan said that it reminded him of Christmas and feeling happy.
The children then played some rhythm games with the glockenspiels before learning to play the song.

The Island

After reading The Island this week in English, the children completed a conscience alley. A child walked down the alley and the other children on either side had to give reasons for and against letting the man stay on the island. Once they had walked through the alley, the children then had to share their final decision after hearing lots of different opinions.



In PSHE this week we have been looking at different types of relationships.

The children started by discussing what relationships a person would have at different stages of their life in small groups.

The children then looked at three different relationship stories and considered how the people would need to behave in order to keep their relationship happy and healthy.
