Summer Term - Magic Carpet!
Our summer term topic is Magic Carpet!
In Kingfisher class we have PE on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Please can you bring in your childs PE kit by Tuesday 19th September.
Please make sure your child brings in a book bag, hat and suncream every day.
This half term we have been travelling on a Magic Carpet through different destinations. We have had lots of fun and travelled to Space, Dinosaur World, Under the Sea, India and a real life trip to the park. We have been very busy working hard during Literacy making ourselves independent writers!
When we visited space we got to make puffy planets, explore Tim Peake and his missions, make and write alien descriptions. We had lots of fun during independent activities with naming the planets, exploring non-fiction books and creating moan dust.
We loved it when our magic carpet took us to Dinosaur World! We all knew lots of facts about dinosaurs and amazed our teachers with how many dinosaur names we knew! This week we focused on writing dinosaur facts, labelling dinosaurs, making dinosaur paper plates and looking at dinosaur skeletons.
Under the sea was an interesting week, as we were all very shocked to see real fish in our classrooms! We used sketching pencils to draw the fish and all tried really hard to add in all the extra detail. We loved holding the fish and feeling their scales and sharp teeth. Outside we enjoyed playing the traditional game of 'hook a duck' and going on a under the sea hunt writing down the sea creatures we could spot.
In Kingfisher class we absolutely loved it when our magic carpet visited the country of India. This week full of colour, love, happiness and friendship. We enjoyed making coconut burfi's and especially enjoyed tasting them at the end of the day. We enjoyed making our white t-shirts colourful during the colour run to celebrate the 'Holi Festival', we enjoyed splatting our friends with painted handprints. To end the week, we made Rakhi bands for our friends to share our love for them.
To end our fabulous topic of the 'Magic Carpet' we enjoyed visiting our local park. We had lots of fun playing on the slides, swings and climbing frames, playing duck, duck, goose and enjoying a drink and special biscuit. We produced some amazing work after our trip to the park by writing a recount of all the fantastic things we did.
Our next topic will be 'Fun at the Farm'...

Infant Voices Music Festival
On Monday 19th February, Kingfisher class took part in the Portsmouth Music Festival alongside year 2 Peacock class. As a class we performed two of our own songs to the judges and other two schools who attended the event. We all sang beautifully with lots of actions and smiles. Everyone enjoyed our songs and we received lovely comments and feedback. For the rest of the afternoon we rehearsed the set songs which the year 2's will be performing at the Kings Theatre alongside other schools within Portsmouth.
As a class we had a wonderful afternoon with lots of singing. Below is the link to see the photos which were taken by The Portsmouth Music Hub if you would like to take a look at how much fun we had!
