 Our learning in Kingfishers

  • We started a new DT topic all about food. We looked at Spanish cuisine in Spain and various other countries which show aspects of Spanish culture in their cooking. We also talked about eating a balanced diet.
  • We have been learning about the Islamic story "The legend of the fish basket" and represented key scenes through freeze framing.
  • We have been learning about measuring and classifying angles in Maths, and have been working on our protractor skills!
  • We had a great Music session with Miss Dally. We listened to a classical piece of Music and thought about what we liked and disliked, and used musical vocabulary to describe the tempo and volume. Then we compared it to a more modern version and thought about which version we preferred.
  • We are finding out about the Battle of Britain in History. We have been learning about key countries that were involved and used atlases to find out the names and locations of the countries on a world map.
  • We worked hard on text exploration this week, identifying why we use different texts for a variety of purposes.
  • As part of Internet safety week, we learned about AI and the advancement of technology through time. A great mix of Computing and History!
  • We have been working on composing a piece of Hip Hop music using YuStudio, a Digital Audio Workstation and have created some drum tracks.
  • We have been dancing with Miss Dally! We have been working on listening carefully to the music and moving in time to the beat in order to put together a fantastic expressive group piece.
  • We have been looking at diary and blog writing in English. We identified key features and practiced how to use these in our own writing.
  • We supported our Snowy Owl buddies with their work in Computing. We helped them to practice logging in to Purple Mash and navigating around the program.
