CONGRATULATIONS, WELL DONE AND THANK YOU to each and every child in Peacock class. You were AMAZING in your class assembly and you should feel VERY proud. Have a fantastic half term holiday. Love Mrs Spicer and Mrs Malyon xxx

We got off to a great start visiting Tesco for their behind the scenes tour. We also tasted some delicious, healthy fruit and veg! It was lots of fun.

 

We have completed many exciting science experiments this half term. We completed the glitter experiment to see how easily germs spread. We put glitter on one person’s hands (germs) and they then went around touching different people and objects. Eventually we all had germs (glitter) on our hands… yuck! We also looked at how to wash our hands properly and when we should wash our hands.

 

We also looked at how mould grows on bread. We put a piece of bread in a bag with gloved hands, one with washed hand and one with dirty hands. They all grew mould but the one with dirty hands had a lot more!

 

We have tried out different exercises during our PE lessons including yoga, aerobics and circuit training. We were also lucky enough to have two martial arts coaches in to teach us some things. We looked at how our heart rate changes when we exercise.

 

We loved making mini beasts out of fruit and vegetables and a rainbow pizza… yum!

 

We have loved this topic and learning how to keep ourselves healthy and be the best we can be!

Please look through our picture gallery to see all of the exciting things we have been doing :)

 

 

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!
