Y1/2: Kind Kingfishers - Mrs Hauton & Miss Banks
This term the Kind Kingfishers have been learning how to use the school Chrome books. They have learnt to log onto the computers and open a word document. They have also learnt how to type a simple sentence and change the size, colour and style of the font.
The children enjoyed exploring the outdoor area and using different natural materials to make a dragon picture. After that they created castles and dragons with the construction toys in Miss Toyne’s class. Finally they listened to the story of George and the Dragon and carefully made a peg dragon for the classroom display.
The children have been learning about the properties of 3D shapes. We talked about their properties and then they created their own 3D shape snowmen. They sorted them into different shape families. The children enjoyed using the resources around the classroom to create different symmetrical pictures. They had one line of symmetry and remembered that both sides of the picture should be the same.
Reverend Penny visited school to help all the children make a Christingle. They learnt what all the symbols represented and talked about the Christingle Service at Church. The children’s £1 donation helped to raise money for The Children’s Society. After school many of the children attended St Edward’s Church in Sudbrooke and enjoyed singing carols by candlelight.
The children enjoyed sorting the different coins and talking about their value. They also created some fantastic pictures with all the coins. They moved on to count out different values using the numicon to help them.
Science Week During science week the Kind Kingfishers learnt about their bodies and how to keep them healthy. In PE they completed a fitness circuit and talked about how their bodies felt. Over the term the children have also had a go at improving their stamina by jogging for 4 minutes without stopping. They talked about healthy food choices and took a tally to find out the most popular fruit. They created their own block charts to help them interpret the results. They learnt the main body parts and labelled each other. They also used the iPads to label body parts. Finally, they learnt about the five senses and completed challenges in the classroom.
The Kind Kingfishers have absolutely loved getting to know the FEBA Forest Area with our Forest School Teacher this term. They have created train tracks and trains for magical creatures. They have used charcoal to design a flying machine. Finally, they were able to cook marshmallows on the campfire. I can’t think of a better way to start a Monday morning! Throughout these tasks the children have shown great team work, listening skills and imagination.
