We have had a great World Book Day in Kingfishers. We have talked about our favourite book characters and stories and we guessed who each other had dressed up as by looking at our costumes. Can you guess who we all are below?
This week in Kingfishers we produced our own weather forecasts in pairs. We have learned a lot about the different kinds of weather so far this term. First, we researched our activity by watching different video clips of different weather presenters. We noted the language they used and the visual prompts and symbols. We rehearsed our forecasts first before presenting them to Miss Grimshaw and the rest of Kingfishers. Miss Grimshaw recorded us and also took pictures which you can see below. We had lots of fun pretending to be weather presenters for the afternoon.
We had a fantastic day on our whole school trip to Chester Zoo. We saw lots of different animals. Miss Grimshaw’s favourite was the giraffes. Well done Kingfishers. You were a credit to the school! Have a look at our pictures below.
Kingfishers have enjoyed their Christmas party today. We had games, pass the parcel, party food and a special visitor came … Father Christmas! He gave us all a special gift. Merry Christmas from Miss Grimshaw, Miss Karen, Mrs Lees, Miss Jo and from 29 very excited Kingfishers.
What a week we’ve had in Kingfishers this week. Christmas jumper day, Christmas dinner, two nativity performances as well as solving algorithms in Computing, lighting Christingles in RE and finding waterproof materials in Science. Kingfishers have worked extremely hard. Well done!
This year our nativity was about a bossy King .
We had such a fun time singing, dancing and acting.
Thank you to all our parents and other family members/ friends for coming to watch.
The Owls all ready for the dress rehearsal. They were very excited and did an amazing job with the Robins and Kingfishers! 😊🎄🌟 …
Robins, Kingfishers and Owls have all borrowed a book today from the Infant Library. They are keeping them in their trays to read independently in class. They were very excited and showed us how much they love books! 😊📕📙📘📗
This week during Enrichment Week, Kingfishers have been learning about Roald Dahl and Helen Sharman. Did you know Roald Dahl use to be a fighter pilot before he became a writer? Did you know Helen Sharman was the first British astronaut to fly in space? We have really enjoyed producing lots of work across the curriculum around these two people and creating our display in the hall this afternoon. Have a look at our science pictures below where we had to investigate which paper was the best for Roald Dahl to write on. It had to look nice, be strong and be easy to fold to make lines. Other pictures also show the children making their own Mir Space Station which Helen Sharman flew to space on in 1991.
This week Kingfishers have been exploring poetry. We have been looking at different sounds in different poems and exploring features such as rhyme and repetition. We wrote a verse of our own version of the ‘Sound Collector’.
In Maths, we have been reading and writing numbers to 20 in digits and words. Our phonics segmenting and blending skills have really helped us with the number words.
In Science we finished our body senses with sight. We labelled the different parts of our eye and used a scarf to blindfold us to experience what it would be like without sight. We realised it was very difficult and that you rely on your other senses a lot more.
Kingfishers have worked very hard this Autumn half term and should be very proud of themselves. We hope everybody has a lovely half term!
