Spring Term 2018
The children in Kingfisher class have really enjoyed their ‘London’ topic this term. In English they read and retold the story of Katie in London which helped them to learn about some of the famous landmarks of London. After reading the story of Paddington at the Palace, the children wrote a newspaper article about the Changing of the Guards.
In Maths the children explored how to find halves and quarters of shapes by cutting up different pieces of food, and used apparatus to find halves and quarters of quantities. They also learnt about addition and subtraction and the inverse relationship between the two operations.
In Science the children learnt about the properties of everyday materials. They investigated which was the best waterproof material to make an umbrella for Paddington Bear.
In Geography the children looked at atlases and identified the four countries in the United Kingdom and their capital cities. They then used this to label a map.
Everyone really enjoyed the trip to London and seeing the different sights of London from the London Eye and the river boat. The term came to a close with performances of the ‘Spring Extravaganza’ to the rest of the school and their parents.
The summer term topic is ‘Rainforests’ and we look forward to sharing our learning with you.
