Learning in Kingsley Class - Spring

Even though the Spring term was very disrupted and a bit strange, Kingsley Class still managed to complete some great learning!

For Science Day we tested out different brands of toothpaste to see which one was the best before having a go at making our own:

  

We had great fun dressing up for World Book Day and doing lots of book related activities:

  We particularly liked how coordinated some of our costumes were!

To finish off our Dragon topic, we designed and made our own dragon traps before presenting them to the rest of the class:

            

We have also started our Djembe drumming lessons which are going really well and we are looking forward to showing you what we have learned at some point!

 Everybody is concentrating really hard!

 Learning in Kingsley Class - Autumn Term

In the second half of the Autumn Term we have continued our learning about the Ancient Greeks. We learnt about the fall of Troy and lots of other myths. We were inspired by a famous ancient Greek called Aesop to write our own fables - a story with a lesson. 

We enjoyed getting outside to plant some trees in the Forest School area and we are looking forward to seeing them grow over the next few years.

            

In science we have been learning about electricity and having a go at making our own circuits. We investigated different materials to see which were electrical conductors and which were electrical insulators.

      

For DT this term we have been designing and sewing our own Christmas stockings. They look great and the children are really proud of them!

        

        

Autumn 1

We have been loving learning about the ancient Greeks this half term. We have written our own Greek myths and have made theatre masks using balloons and papier mache.

   

 

In multicultural week we have been learning about Brazil. We have learnt about the geography and culture of the country. We enjoyed learning how to samba dance and making carnival masks!
