Wednesday 22nd November 2017 - Look what I found

Sliding the twitter posts across the screen, pausing to watch this (but you MUST watch the video on the link below)

I tripped across this, of more serious and scientific interest;

You can see the website where the Table comes from - it is a free download! I love all the little pictures for each element.

Apart from that, today was a day like many Wednesdays, full of piano pupils (8) and class music lessons (3). 

Reception and Year 1 was a raucous rendition of barely understood Christmas Songs ready for the Christmas Advent Service at the end of the term (Why would the Baby Jesus come to rain on us?). The double meaning of "render" frequently comes to mind in music lessons.

Year 3 and 4 were wildly enthusiastic in creating the storm music for the story of "The Princess and the Pea". It was touch and go whether anyone would hear her knock, knock, knocking at the castle door.

Finally Year 5 and 6 were supposed to be working in groups to interpret the phrase "sailing along on the morning breeze, using a selection of (more or less) appropriate percussion instruments. Some of the groups would have sunk any battleships, cruisers and aircraft carriers within the vicinity. Heaven knows what will happen when they start trying to interpret "Moving at the speed of light" next week.
