Kingfisher class

Miss Moore, Mrs Burns and Mrs Koike

Kingfishers have worked incredibly hard over the last term and should all be very proud of their achievements! As we move into Spring term, we will be leaving the railways behind, and going even further back in time to answer our enquiry question – Is a 21st century child healthier than a Stone Age child? 

In English we will be reading How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth, tying in nicely with our work on the Stone Age. We will also be looking at the comic strip style book The Stone Age: Hunters, Gatherers and Woolly Mammoths, by Marcia Williams and reading the children’s classic Stig of the Dump together as a class. In Maths, we will be moving onto multiplication and division, money and fractions. 

In our History lessons, we will be exploring how life changed in Britain through the Stone Age, the Bronze Age and the Iron Age. We will be focusing on daily life for children during these times and comparing what we discover with our own lives today. In Science, we will be looking at plants and animals, particularly what both need to keep them healthy and strong.  

In DT we will be making a soft toy for a Stone Age child, and possibly tucking in to some Stone Age delicacies too!  

PE will be taught by Miss Moore on Wednesdays and Fridays. Mrs Morton will teach Art on Tuesday mornings and Mrs Stoodley and Mrs Gomes will continue to teach RE and Portuguese respectively. 

I am looking forward to another fantastic term of learning!
