Miss Green and Mrs James welcome you to Kingfisher Class!
We had a wonderful time showing our special adult helpers what we have been learning about this term. Our inspire was a morning filled with chocolate activities to fit with our Charlie and the Chocolate Factory theme. The children had a great time and produced some excellent work with their adults. A big thank you to everyone that came and made the morning special!
We have been learning about particles and what happens to them when a change of state occurs. We had fun pretending to be particles in a solid, liquid and gas!
The Year 5’s were invited to Easton Academy in Bristol to visit their pen pals. We have been writing to our pen pals and were extremely excited to meet them in person!
We had a great time visiting the school, making friends and trying new food. We also got to look around Easton and visit the park and mosque. The children had a great day, were very polite and were excellent ambassadors for the school.
We were lucky enough to receive weekly clarinet lessons and have been busy learning how to read music as well as play. We were then invited to perform in a concert at the Cheese and Grain in Frome. The children played as part of an orchestra and were fantastic and sounded great!
Kingfisher have been busy studying Africa. We researched some African animals, looked at their migration and wrote non – chronological reports about some of the animals. We also enjoyed looking at African artists and produced some impressive artwork.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Kingfisher Class!🎅🏼
Christmas Carol Service
The Year 3 and 4 children from Swallow and Kingfisher Class put on two fantastic carol services at Holy Trinity Church, Coleford. We retold the Christmas Story with poetry and songs. The children sang beautifully and recited the poem confidently.
Thank you to all that turned up to watch the carol service. It was great to see the church full of family and friends.
Christmas Jumper Day
Kingfisher Class looked very festive in their Christmas jumpers and have raised a lot of money for the Save The Children charity!
Bath Christmas Market
The school choir, which included lots of Kingfisher Class members, sang at the Bath Christmas Market on Monday 3rd December. The children sang their carols beautifully and attracted a large crowd. We are proud of the Kingfishers that took part and it looks like they had a fantastic time!
As part of out Tudors topic, Kingfisher class had the opportunity to make and paint clay Tudor roses. We worked very hard they all look brilliant!
The Somerset Poppies
Children from Bishop Henderson School joined children from many surrounding villages to create poppies in memory of the servicemen who lost their lives during World War I. They were then put on display at The Bishop's Palace in Wells. Children from Bishop Henderson School were then invited to sing at the opening of The Somerset Poppies Installment
We have been busy creating a sculpture for our new sculpture trial. We decided to make a bird and decorate it with bottle tops. The children had lots of fun decorating our sculpture with Mrs James and our bird looks fantastic! You can find it located on the running track next to the pond
During arts weeks, we looked at the landscape artist Angie Rooke. We went to visit her in her home studio and got to see where she created her art work. Her house were situated in the picturesque village of North Wootton and it even overlooked Glastonbury Tor. We were inspired by her beautiful artwork and had a go at painting like her when we got back to school.
