Our Summer term starts off with Yarra class (year 2)! They talk about what they’ve been up to over the Easter holidays, tadpoles, pond dipping adventures and their favourite hobbies. They also review the book Rosie Revere, Engineer and talk about the Dodo – an animal we’d all like to meet.
Featured music in the broadcast this week:
The Shape of Water by Alexandre Desplat
Heart of the Country by Paul McCartney
Sail On by The Commodores
Build Me Up Buttercup by The Foundations
The Hudson River flows through New York. There are many industries located along the Hudson, and they dump their waste into the waters of the Hudson thus polluting it. The government has taken action and passed laws to stop this pollution.
This week’s class broadcast by Hudson (year 4) is all about stories, poems and fables. First, listen to the children read the poem Girl and a Tree by Carol Ann Duffy (you can also read it here) and then write their own stories.
Later on the children play a game of 21 Questions (can you try to guess the animal before they do?), talk about Miyazaki’s film Spirited Away and read two of Aesop’s Fables. And finally, listen to Mr. Sheffield’s choice Desert Island Disc.
Featured music this week:
Girl Under A Tree by Sweet Baboo
Above The Clouds by Paul Weller
Spirited Away – One Summer’s Day by Joe Hisaishi
Chopin’s Nocturne No.2 by Elisabeth Leonskaja
