October 2019

Year 1 – Exciting start to the half term.

What an exciting couple of weeks it has been in Kingfishers! We had a wonderful trip out to Smithills Farm and linked this to our literacy lessons. We have been learning how to write letters and recently wrote a letter to Smithills thanking them for our amazing trip. In math’s we have been learning about addition and how we can add two numbers to find out how many there are all together. 

Over the last two weeks we have also been learning all about health and well being. We have took parts in lots of amazing activities such as mindfulness meditation, yoga,  healthy eating classes and many, many more. We can’t wait to see what the rest of this half term is gong to bring!

October in Year 2

We have had another fun month in Year 2.
We have been working on our 10 and 5 times tables and our spelling of common exception words. In Literacy we have read the enchanted faraway tree and created our own lands. We then made our own versions of google buns and pop cakes and enjoyed them for reward time. We enjoyed our class trip to Bolton ERC and went pond dipping and located many different habitats. We can’t wait to see what fun we will have in November!

October in Year 4

Year 4 have been busy learning lots of new things. 

The children enjoyed going on a minibeast hunt around the school building. They were fascinated to find a range of different creatures living in the school grounds and particularly enjoyed digging in mud! 

We had a visit from the road safety team who talked to us about keeping safe on the roads, particularly as it is getting darker outside much earlier. 

The children enjoyed writing letters to Mrs Whiting based on the class text ‘The Lost Thing.’ They have also produced some lovely adventure stories. 

We are all looking forward to our class trip to Chester in a few weeks time.

October in Year 3

We have had a great October in Year 3 and the children have been working very hard in all subjects. 

This week we have had a very busy week with a road safety workshop and a trip to Southport Eco Centre. In the road safety workshop we learnt all about how we should behave near a road and the steps we should take to cross the road safely. At Southport Eco Centre, we learnt all about Volcanoes and Earthquakes and completed lots of interactive activities about these topics. We all had a great day and can’t wait to start learning more about Earthquakes and Volcanoes in our Geography lessons.
