Welcome to Kingfisher Class. We are a mixed class of Year 3 and 4 children. Our Teacher is Mrs Low and Mrs Straughan is the Teaching Assistant. We have a varied and exciting curriculum with a 2 year rolling programme studing a range of topics such as Romans & Celts, Robots, Dorset home & away and much more! We go on lots of trips to enhance our learning and have a biannnual Residental trip to PGL at Osmington Bay, Weymouth.
Lifesaving in Kingfishers
Kingfishers had great fun learning the basic skills of rescuing and helping people in the water.
The children used 4 different methods: dry, talk, tow and wade.
All of the children had a go at rescuing an unconscious casualty to by working as a team.
Well done Kingfishers!
The topic for this term is Robots and during DT the children had to design and build their own 3D robots which could stand independently. As you can see they did so very sucessfully.
WW1&2 Forest School Trip
On Tuesday 8th November Woodpeckers and Kingfishers travelled to Moreton Forest and became soldiers for the day. The children had to carry rifles (plastic hockey sticks) all day. We marched, built dens, threw grenades (pine cones), went on an assault course and searched for an injured soldier and used a stretcher to carry them back to base. The children had great fun and really got into character.
Travelling by Tuba
On Friday 8th July the whole school were lucky enough to take part in a music workshop and performance. It was a fantastic day with every child playing a musical instrument. Here are some pictures of Kingfishers having a go and their performance to staff, parents and rest of school.
PGL Trip 2016
Harry Potter Creative Writing Day.
Kingfishers entered their potion lab with bats eyes, wiggly worms, mice tails, edible eye balls, insect jelly and magic coloured liquid all on the tables ready to create their own potions. They had to decribe each item using alliteration and then produce a set of instructions describing what they had created and the equipmenmt used. In the afternoon we played Quidditch and had a party where we ate worms, mice, raven claws, huffle puffs and tasted fizzy potions!!
On Friday 13th November our Year 3's went to Moreton Forest School. They did a variety of activities a environmental walk, den building, animal print moulds and fire building. It was a fantastic day and the children loved it.
These pictures are of us at The New Barn Educational Centre where we learnt about the Romans & Celts.
