Kingfishers  2018-2019

Our topic for the first term was Superheroes.  We read the story of Supertato and made our very own Supertato to take home.

Instruction writing and making pizzas

In English we wrote instructions and followed them to make delicious pizzas. Using our knowledge of food groups, which we learnt in Science we tried to make sure our pizza was a balanced meal by choosing a food from each group.

Superhero dressing up day  19.10.2018

To finish our topic we had a superhero dressing up day. We wrote our own superhero story, designed outfits for a superhero and built Superhero Headquarters using different construction. We looked great and had a fun day.

Celebrating 100 years since the end of WW1

We celebrated 100 years since the end of WW1 during the week 5th-9th November. We learnt about life in the trenches, created poppies, collaged the flags of the countries involved, wrote poems, created silhouette soldier pictures and many other activities. We looked great dressed up too!

Church Visits

As part of RE we visited two churches in our local area, United Reformed Church and St Marks. We thought about why people would visit the church and compared them thinking about similarities and differences. Thank you to Father Ben and Susan Scott for sparing time to talk to us.

The Great Fire of London

Our topic for the second term was The Great Fire of London. We learnt that it started on Sunday 2nd September 1666 in a bakery on Pudding Lane. We wrote diary entries and newspaper reports. To finish the topic we had a WOW day where we made our own bread and recreated The Great Fire of London on the playground.

Merry Christmas to you all

Everyone in Kingfisher Class wish you all a very Happy Christmas.

Recycling Day 15.01.2019

We were very lucky to have  visit from Joanne Atherton, an artist who creates pieces using items of plastic, washed up on shore, that she collects from various beaches. She showed us some of her incredible artwork, then we were all given a piece of clay which we rolled, used plastic items to decorate and finally cut into shapes. When the clay is dry we will paint the clay tiles and create a whole school piece of artwork. We can't wait to see the finished piece. In addition to working with Jo we also researched the importance of recycling, which bin is for which rubbish and designed recycling posters.
