Weather forecasts in Kingfishers

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.

Enrichment Week in Year 1

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.

Another Super Week in Kingfishers!

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!
