The children change their books on a daily basis. Please ensure they bring a water bottle into school for fruit and drinks time after play time. Our PE day is a Thursday - please ensure your child comes in PE clothes and a school jumper.
An Island Home
In Term 2 we really enjoyed learning about Katie Morag and her island home. This topic gave
us the opportunity to explore many different subjects!
In Term 2, we took part in our whole school 'Celebrating Differences' week. We read the story Elmer and wrote excellent diary entries imagining we were him. We discussed that he tried to hide something that was different about him to fit in but found out that the thing that made him different was the most special thing of all.
As a part of this week, we all had a jar and then different members of the class wrote nice comments on circles and filled our jars. We then discussed how this made us feel when we read the comments and the power of the words we use.
Look at the photos below to see us reading all the lovely comments!
London Through Time
The Great Fire of London
This half term, Kingfishers have been working hard on this topic from home. We began this topic by looking at 'Homes through Time' and created timelines. We then focussed in on the Great Fire of London. We learnt about the main events of the fire e.g. where it started, how long it lasted and significant people. We also wrote excellent setting descriptions using our senses describing London in 1666.
We also had a virtual visit from the Fresh Water Theatre Show and loved acting out the different parts of the fire. We also got to look at a range of artefacts and met a range of eye witnesses!
As a part of this topic, one of our topic lessons was to research the fire and then present our understanding using either art (a model or picture), a poster, a fact sheet or a PowerPoint. Look at our great work below:
Term 4 - Through the Key Hole
This half term, we will completing a range of writing:
Building on our work on The Great Fire of London, we will be looking at what London was like in the Victorian times. Over the term, we will be looking at Victorian homes, daily life and food.
For our first week of home learning we looked at what they ate, Victorian toys and Victorian houses in our local area. Have a look at the photos below to see what we got up to:
