Year 2 have been enjoying some recent drama work based around our current class topic of the rainforest. We have been learning about the different types of animals that inhabit this type of environment. Some of them are large and strong, others more fragile and may move around in different ways.
We introduced the pupils to the Carnival of Animals classical piece of music. This is a very enchanting suite, with many mood changes throughout. We asked the children to try and think what type of rainforest animal they might associate with the different sounds that they were hearing. We then acted out these movements in time with the music.
