Kingfishers

Kingfishers are taught by Mrs James (Teacher), Mrs Southwell (TA) and Mrs Stanton (Teacher - on a Monday afternoon).

Well Kingfishers, we've said goodbye to 2020 and 2021 has arrived! This new year may you be blessed with courage and confidence to spread your wings and turn each day into an adventure of learning and fun.

This term we will be going on a Polar Adventure! I'd like you to think about the sort of clothing you might need to wear if you visited the Polar regions.  

Homework will be set on line. Times tables will be available via the TT Rock Stars website and should be practised daily in readiness for a test on Wednesdays. I can monitor who has been logging on. You will be given spellings to practise along with a weekly task and sentences to write. This will be in readiness for a test on Fridays.  You should also read on a daily basis and I will be setting you reading tasks too.  

PE will be on Monday afternoons with Mrs Stanton.  This term's focus is Football and we will be continuing with The Daily Mile and our Mindfulness sessions.

Best wishes,

Mrs James

Sewing: Christmas Tree Decorations
 
Putting their sewing skills to the test, Kingfishers designed their own Christmas tree decorations.  They all used overstitch and running stitch; some of the Kingfishers even sewed a zigzag design.  
World War II:  Pack Up Your Troubles in Your Old Kit Bag ....
Kingfishers walked into the classroom to the sound of an air raid siren sounding and a table set for four.  What could this scene be representing ...?  The Kingfishers decided to investigate.
Rationing and Food
During WWII, the government appointed a Minister of Food, Lord Woolton.  His job was to educate people into better eating habits.
 
As more and more supply ships were being sunk by the German U-boats, additional home grown food was needed.
 
The 'Dig for Victory' campaign saw people turn their flower beds into vegetable patches.  
 
Kingfishers made some nutritious Trench Stew and dumplings.  What do you think the meal tasted like, Kingfishers?
