|Briefly describe how the activity / event added to the SMSC experience for the children.
|On Friday we had a Beatles WOW day as part of our Liverpool topic this term. The children took part in three activities to learn all about the amazing musicians.
1. They learned some 60s dance moves and wrote their own verse to the song I get by with a little help from my friend.
2. They listened to some Beatles records and produced an album cover after looking at some real examples.
3. They sang and played instruments to Yellow Submarine, while Mr Meir played it to them on his guitar.
The children also performed the song ‘Here comes the sun’ after learning the words and some dance moves. It was a fantastic day and made even more special with 60s themed dressing up and a special school dinner menu.
