Welcome to Kingfishers Class!
Kingfisher class is taught by Mrs Newman and Mrs Gale. Other adults in Kingfisher class are Mrs Mattinson and Mrs Carruthers. Mrs Reed also comes in regularly to help with Art and D&T.
Spring Term 2020
This term our topic is 'Around the World' where we will be learning about different countries, cultures and people. It would be great if the children could bring in any souvenirs or artefacts from different places for us to discuss and display.
We will be learning about volcanoes and will be making our own erupting volcano!
Max was very proud of two scientific words he had learnt, one was velocity the other was related to centrifugal force. We investigated this with Mrs Newman spinning a bucket of water around her head, the children were amazed that the water didn't fall out.
We will be exploring Aboriginal Art using symbols and dots to create patterns and pictures. We will discuss the use of colour and look at how the Aborigines use their art to tell stories.
Free Choice time
Ellie made a princess castle using the blocks. She spent time making sure all of the blocks were balanced and it looked perfect.
At playtime Joshua and Henry made a seat from some of the equipment. The perfect place to watch the world go by! They were very pleased with themselves.
Hannah enjoyed making Lowther Castle during the wet weekend. She made it with cake and iced it to look like The Lost Castle.
Autumn Term 2019
This term our topic is 'Change'.
The children will learn all about changes in relation to food, plants, animals and different environments.
They will learn many facts but will also explore the creative and fantasy aspects of change through English, Art, Drama, Music and Physical Education.
In our science we have looked at how foods can be changed through peeling, cutting and cooking. We have also looked at plant bulbs and discussed the changes that take place to grow beautiful flowers.
We have explored the changes that happen during Autumn through our tree art. We have also made pieces inspired by the sea and our trip to Allonby.

We enjoyed a lovely day out at Maryport Aquaria and Harbour followed by a trip to Allonby Beach. We compared the similarities and differences between Maryport and Langwathby and also learnt about lots of interesting sea creatures before hunting for treasure on the beach.
This term we have also been tasting different fruits and discussing our likes and dislikes to make our own healthy smoothies.
We have talked a lot about our school values of: Hope, Service and Compassion and have made a great display of how we can act out those values.
- Try to read with your child as many times a week as is possible, ideally three times.
- Practice their KIRF targets.

- Complete tasks from their Peri-ometre!
We have PE on Monday and Tuesday.

Running Club is on a Thursday lunchtime with Mrs Monkhouse and Mrs Wilson. If your child wishes to attend can they please bring suitable clothing and trainers. They will run whatever the weather so kit will sometimes get wet.
