Welcome to Kingfishers! 

 

Term 3

We can't believe it is half term already!

Here are some photos from our Number Day.  We had great fun writing clues - can you guess the number?

We made 'double bugs' and painted symmetrical pictures.  There was some time for Maths games too and lots of measuring!


 

 

 This week we have held our KS1 Maths information sessions for parents.  Below are the PowerPoint slides for the Year 1 and 2 workshops.

Term 2

What a great term we have had! Thank you so much for all of your lovely words, cards and gifts.  We hope you all have a very happy Christmas and look forward to seeing everyone again in the New Year.

We have said very fond farewells to Miss Dyke, our PGCE student.  She will be working at St.John's in Trowbridge until March, when she will return to complete her final placement with us.  

This week we have had a really fun filled Christmas party with lots of games and delicious party food.  We have enjoyed making lots of Christmas crafts and Christmas themed Maths and English activities.

Here we are performing some Christmas poetry:

Term 1 

Day of Many Colours

What a fun day we have had to mark our Day of Many Colours!  We have thought about what God looks like to us, written beautiful prayers of thanks and painted some amazing pictures.  We have made gifts to show our love and made colourful prayer catchers.  Look at our amazing world map too!

 

Children's Literature Festival 

We had a great time at the Children's Literature Festival, meeting the illustrator of Giraffes Can't Dance, Guy Parker-Rees.  Here are a few pictures of us and some of the amazing characters he inspired us to draw!

 

Term 6

Welcome back to all of our lovely children and families. We cannot believe it is Term 6 already but are excited for a fun-filled, busy final term!

9th July 2019 - The children had a fantastic day at St Gregory's. It was full of sports, fun and team work! A brilliant Sports Day - well done Kingfishers, you were all fantastic! 

Today Natwest joined us to lead a workshop as part of our Enterpise topic. We reflected upon what we see as a necessity and what is a luxury. We also thought about how much things cost and how long it takes adults to earn this. The children were shocked that a trip to the cinema could often take a whole days earnings. 

Kingfishers had a fantastic day at Noahs Ark Zoo farm. Thank you to all of you for helping to make this happen! 

Term 5 

Nature Detectives Project 

We came back to school to do a nature hunt as part of our new project "Nature Detectives". We went searching for signs of spring, new life and different animals, birds and insects. We used what we found to make Easter gardens.

Welcome back. We hope you had a restful and an enjoyable break!
