Kingfishers (Yr 3 & 4)

Butser Ancient Farm

Still image for this video
Kingfishers have been learning about Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings and to further their understanding we all went to Butser Ancient Farm. It was an amazing trip, we started off by sitting inside an Anglo-Saxon house! Karen shared with us lots of very interesting facts about the way life was during the period.

A little while later, Karen showed us how to spin wool - this is much harder than it looks! However, Miss Hart discovered a hidden talent!. After that, we had a go at using wattling to build a fence, Karen said that Kingfishers were the best at doing this. Then it was lunchtime and we were able to eat inside the Saxon house with the fire going and sitting on furs.

The next activity was chalk carving, we used flint to carve good luck symbols into it. Finally, we went on an archeological dig, we found bones, pottery, pot holders and other artefacts.

The day was so much fun, we learnt a lot and experienced life as it would have been during the Anglo-Saxons and Viking times. We hope you enjoy watching our photo movie.

Home Learning Information and Grid

 

Greetings Parents, 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for supporting your children with their home learning, it really does make a difference to their understanding. As you are probably aware, there have been a few changes to the way home learning is given and completed in Kingfishers. Below are the main differences:

  • Children will have 2 weeks to complete home learning
  • If mini projects are set, a time period of a half term will be given to complete them
  • Home learning is explained on a 'Home Learning Grid'
  • 3 Tic-Tac-Toe spelling tasks to be completed per week
  • A times table and spelling quiz will be given after the hand in date and these will be completed at the back of their Home Learning books for you to look at
  • As a class, we will be marking home learning together where appropriate. I find that this allows children the opportunity to identify and resolve misconceptions, it also provides myself with an opportunity to give one to one feedback
  • A copy of the Home Learning grid and any task sheets will be on this website so that you have access to the information. You may notice that your child has slightly different spellings, sometimes individualised spellings which are identified from their writing

Please can any loose paper be stuck in their books and a gentle reminder about presentation would be great. 

Again, thank you very much for your support and patience whilst these changes were being implemented.

Miss Hackett

Our Christmas Performance

Our Christmas Performance 1
Our Christmas performance for parents this year was a journey back through the ages. The children sang popular and traditional songs, performed with ukuleles and we enjoyed keyboard and a violin solo. Well done to everyone involved.

To start our 'What a load of old rubbish!' week, Ms Davis brought in mysterious items that she found on the beach. We thought about what they might be. As a class we decided that they must be items made from iron.

 

We listened to a small extract of 'The Iron Man' book. We listened carefully to the description of the Iron Man, this helped us with creating our own drawings.

'What a load of old rubbish!'

Our home learning project was to create a model out of recycled material.

Thank you for taking part, they are beautiful.
