Alongside our topic learning this half term, we completed our very important booklets (SATs) We impressed our teachers with how sensible we were and how amazingly we achieved.

Just recently, we have been studying the country of India. We explored the food they eat, the clothes they wear and created our own art work based on Indian traditions. One of our favourite activities was making (and eating!) a vegetable curry. It was delicious.

Our last topic of the year is called: My Big Home. We will be looking at all sorts of different creatures and their habitats and we have a very exciting trip to Chichester Harbour planned! Watch this space for more information to come.

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!
