WOW Day – The Beatles theme

Lower Key Stage 2 had a WOW day focusing on the Beatles to link with our topic day. We worked on Beatles themed activities, and the children had the chance to hear lots of different Beatles songs throughout the day.

We designed our own Beatles album covers, and what we thought they should look like if the Beatles brought out any songs now. We also practised learning some Beatles songs – ‘Yellow Submarine’ and ‘Love Me Do’. We learnt a dance to the song, ‘Twist and Shout’, and we had to re-write part of the songs – ‘I get by with a little help from my friends’.

In our own classes, we had to practise and record a new video for ‘Help’ and the teachers even had a go at showing the pose from ‘Abbey Road’.
