Junk Modelling instrument homework fun

On Thursday the 27th of February, the we will be having a Mardi Gras celebration day. The colours of Mardi Gras are Green, gold and purple, and we would like all the children to come to school wearing one, two or even all of those colours on that day.

On the day we will have a parade around school wearing our masks and playing our instruments, plus lots more Carnival fun.

Over the half term we would like children in Class 1 to make a musical instrument to bring into school on the first week back.  We would love to see what they can create using empty cereal boxes/tubes/ food packaging etc.  Don’t forget to put photos up on Tapestry of their creating.

The children will then get a chance to show the rest of the class their handiwork and the whole class will use them as part of our Mardi Gras celebrations.

We are also collecting junk modelling so that the children can do more junk modelling during Child Initiated times.

For ideas –

Thank you
