We will do a warm up over zoom in the morning at 9am.
Here is a link to the lesson we will be doing in the hall tomorrow:
In school we listen to the audio tape and follow the movement instructions that are given.
We appreciate that you don't have as much space as we do but if you try to find an area suitable for the children to move around in that would be great. If this is not possible, there is a summary of the lesson and you can ask your child to do the actions below.
Part of the lesson includes group work. Siblings could get involved or parents you could as well if you are feeling up to it! You could even skip that part if easier.
We would love to see videos of you in action or pictures.
In today's programme we learn about creatures, which are often found in the snow. We experience some very cold weather and meet the robin, the snow fox and the penguin. We explore how they move and how they search for food.
• Warm up: flutter your fingers up and down and bend and straighten your knees, as though the snow is falling.
• A blizzard is coming: continue to flutter your fingers and move around the space, as the gentle snowfall turns into a blizzard.
• Robin in the garden: puff out your feathers.
• Hop as a robin: hop around the space and stop to flutter your feathers and peck.
• Robin flies away from the cat: flutter your wings and fly up into the air.
• Snow fox searches for food: creep around the space as the snow fox.
• Waddle like a penguin: waddle with a partner, one behind the other.
• Penguin slips over the ice: slip and slide, following your partner. Everyone waddle like a penguin - waddle together as a whole class in a long line.
• Cool down: lie back and relax, imagining you are looking up at the night sky.
• Body: arms, legs, hands, feet and whole body.
• Action: hopping like a robin, creeping like a snow fox and waddling like a penguin.
• Dynamics: responding to different rhythms in the music and moving slowly and quickly in time.
• Space: exploring the whole space, moving, body low to the ground, reaching up high • Relationships: single and pair-work
