Learning By Topic KS1: Mermaids and PSHE / PE / Music

PSHE: In the story of ‘The Little Mermaid’, Aerial felt different to her family, as if she didn’t belong. Have you ever felt that way? Discuss this with an adult. What did you do to overcome this?

Music/Dance: Choose a song/s from The Little Mermaid soundtrack (Top Tip: find it on YouTube or Spotify) and compose some dance movements that suit the tempo/beat. Top Tip: You could retell parts of the story through your movements.

PE: If possible, visit your nearest swimming pool and practise butterfly kicks, this is a close imitation of how mermaids move! Top Tip: You may like to wear pair of flippers, possibly even mermaid shaped ones!
