Beat,band,boogie - Autumn 2

Our topic this half term is Beat, Band, Boogie. We started our topic by going into the ‘4D’ classroom and watching and listening to a marching band. They were amazing! They were able to play their instruments (some were very big and heavy!) and march all at the same time. Wow!!

They played some songs from Disney films and created pictures from those films using their bodies and position’s as a group. We clapped, marched and danced along to the music. It was great fun!!!!

Why not watch the video and see if you can recognise which songs they are playing and identify the pictures they create. Could you clap, march and dance along too? Why not have a go?

Year 2 thought of innovative ideas and created their own musical instrument. They demonstrated their instrument in front of the class and Father Ged.

Father Ged used the children’s instruments to perform his little musical show.

                                                           Feet Painting            

For our Art & Design subject, the children of year 2 stomped their feet in trays of paint and marched across rolls of paper forming coloured patterns. We talked about the patterns created and the formation of more colours as they blended together.

Why not try some feet stamping with paints at home !

How to make a balloon drum

We each made a balloon drum by following a set of instructions we had written ourselves using sequential words. See if you can make a balloon drum too by following these instructions.

You will need: a balloon, rice, scissors, rubber band, container, sticky tape.


First- Cut the mouth piece off the balloon using a pair of scissors.

Next- Put a handful of rice into the container.

Then: Stretch the balloon over the top of the top of the container

Finally: Secure the balloon using a rubber band and some sticky tape.

Here are some of our balloon drums.


We have been playing Dodgeball in P.E. with Miss Boyle and Mrs Woloszczuk, it’s really good fun. Team A from our class took part in a mini tournament at Shadsworth Infants. Miss Boyle, Mrs Woloszczuk and Mr Frankland all came too and were very proud of us because we played brilliantly and we only lost by 1 point. The final score was Shadsworth Infants 10 – 9 SMSJ.

What have we been up to?
