Welcome to Kingfisher Class
We are a mixed-age class of Year 3 and Year 4 children. Our teacher is Mrs Low and our teaching assistant is Mrs Straughan.
We love to have fun while we are learning and we explore an exciting range of topics over a 2-year rolling programme. These include topics such as Arctic Adventure, Prehistoric Britain, Robots, Rainforests, A Little Bit of Magic and Ancient Egypt. We start each topic with a 'Wow' Day and have at least one school trip each term, where we get the chance to have lots of hands-on experience to bring the learning to life.
We are passionate about reading and books play a very important part of life in Kingfisher Class. We love to welcome authors to school and have our own weekly reading recommendations in class.
Our Forest School area is fantastic and we are lucky enough to go there every week. We learn teamwork, problem-solving and communication skills through lots of interesting activities that link to our topics. These include making a wattle & daub wall, creating magic nature potions, creating obstacle courses and famous landmarks from natural resources.
We hope you enjoy learning more about our wonderful class in the information and photographs below.
As part of this exciting topic, we had a visitor from Portals to the Past who ran an Ancient Egyptian workshop for us. We learnt about Pharaohs, Gods and Goddesses, handled real artefacts, played Egyptian games, did code-breaking with heiroglyphics and much more. In the afternoon, we mummified a body and carried out the burial procession. It was a great day!
