Good morning Class One, it looks like it is going to be another glorious day!

Today, I would like you to listen to a piece of classical music written by a composer called Debussy. It is called Papillion (French for butterfly) and I would like you to quietly listen and imagine the butterflies around you. Then could you create your own butterfly dance to the music. Be creative!

In Science/Art, I thought we could investigate magnetic forces by creating our own butterflies and flowers. If you design and create your own butterfly (it doesn’t have to be big) and cut it out. Then pop a paper clip on the butterfly’s head with string attached so you can make it fly. The paper clip is important and if you do not have one, something small and metal will work like a bottle top stuck on. Then find a magnet, for example a fridge magnet or similar, and turn it into a flower.

Hold your butterfly by the string, move the butterfly nearer to the flower and see how to is attracted to it. Why do you think this happens? What force is taking place here? Is your butterfly attracted to plastic or wood? Investigate and see what happens.

Keep on with your reading and phonics games, watch Geraldine the Giraffe be silly. Have fun in the garden too!
