Miss Green , Mrs Chalk & Mr Lyons Welcome You To Kingfisher Class!
The Year 5 and 6 children had a fantastic time on their 'Mission to Mars'. The children worked in teams to program their robots, demonstrating great communication throughout. The teams competed in a variety of out of this world problem solving scenarios and they thoroughly enjoyed the puzzles and problems put before them.
We have particularly enjoyed learning about women’s rights and the Suffragettes. The children had lots of fun writing persuasive letters arguing for and against women voting and we debated whether the Suffragettes should have used violence or not. I was very impressed with the level of maturity and enthusiasm the children showed whilst learning about this topic.
As part of Investigating India topic we visited Monkey World. We had lots of fun learning about all the different monkeys and the species you would find in India. The children were super ambassadors for Bishop Henderson and were a pleasure to take on this trip.
