Kingfishers

KINGFISHER CLASS
 
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.  
 
 
WOW DAY
Kingfishers took part in a Stone Age WOW day and the children came to school in costumes, made stone age necklaces and practiced survival skills hunting woolly mammals.
 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.
