LDC - Denmark
Welcome to Denmark class. We are the LDC (the Specialist Resource Base for Speech & Language) and our teachers are Mrs Wilson and Mrs King. Mrs Brown and Miss Maxam are our Teaching Assistants.
We have been busy creating lots of wonderful things to help us celebrate Christmas.
We worked together as a group to weigh and mix ingredients to make a Christmas cake. We made repeating patterns using stickers to decorate frill for the cakes and we iced the top of them.They were delicious!
We painted four trees in different colours to represent the four seasons. We put a calendar tab at the bottom.
We had lots of fun making our Christmas cards this year. We had our photo taken and used cotton wool pads to turn ourselves into Father Christmas!
To link with our story of ‘Daisy the Lost Cat’, we decided to make our own cat puppets. First we had to be designers and think about what we wanted our cats to look like. Then we used our sewing skills to join the felt together before gluing on the cat’s features.
We have really enjoyed playing with our puppets and have even given them a name!
Yesterday we had a visitor from Musical Keys and had great fun playing with sounds and technology! We used a special program on the iPads to record sounds around us and then we listened to them. We also had a chance to use instruments and again record them with the iPads. We put some of our sounds together to make a group composition.
We also had the chance to play our sounds to accompany a group chant, we gradually added sounds to the chant until lots of us were playing and then they were gradually stopped until it was only the chant left.
