Where the wild things are

This week’s book has been ‘Where the wild things are’ by Maurice Sendak. The children have explored the story through Art and Music. They enjoyed learning to draw the monster hanging from the tree and added a watercolour wash effect too. Using their voices, body percussion and instruments they created a soundscape to accompany the picture of Max walking through the wood at night. There were lots of skills to remember including listening to each other, playing your instrument sensitively and watching the conductor.
