Time Conjunctions

I wanted to share some pictures of the class working brilliantly together in our English learning this morning. The children were asked to work to identify missing time conjunctions in sentences that had been given to them. As the pictures demonstrate, the children did this wonderfully and there was lots of amazing teamwork on display.

 

Titanic Museum

The class had a fabulous trip to the Titanic Museum in Liverpool on Tuesday. They had a great time looking at all the displays and absolutely loved the workshop that the museum ran for us. The children behaved themselves brilliantly as always and represented the school fabulously. Well done Kingfishers!

 

More Titanic homework!

Ahead of our trip to the Maritime museum in Liverpool tomorrow, it was great to be able to showcase some more great Titanic homework from members of our class. The children really are putting in a great effort with their topic homework, and it’s super to see them all so proud of their efforts.

 

Year 5 Harvest Assembly

A huge well done to everyone in Year 5 for contributing so brilliantly in our Harvest assembly today. The children sang brilliantly and everyone spoke their lines clearly and confidently in front of the whole school. Thank you also to all the parents who attended and for all the generous donations we received. All the items will be passed on to Urban Outreach who will distribute them to those in need in our local communities.

 

Negative numbers – tug of war game!

We played tug of war in maths on Wednesday to help us with our understanding of negative numbers. Starting at 0, the children took it in turn to roll a dice to generate a number. One person was subtracting and trying to get to -15, one person was adding and trying to get to +15. The children played the game brilliantly as they always do in activities like this one.

Literacy detectives

As part of our unit on news broadcasts, Kingfishers spent part of this morning trying to identify the 5Ws (who, what, where, when, why) in written and verbal news reports. The children were that good that they also added a H (for how) to our list of information to include in our own broadcasts. They worked absolutely brilliantly in their pairs and did themselves and their teacher proud.

 

Home achievements – part 2

Well done to all the children who spoke about their home achievements in the second of our class discussions today. We heard all about what our avid readers, gymnasts, dancers and sports stars get up to outside school. The children listened politely and respectfully to their classmates which was great to see. Good work Kingfishers!

 

Home achievements

Well done to everyone who spoke in front of the class about their home achievements on Tuesday. It was great to hear what the children get up to outside of school. Who knew we had such brilliant farmers, performing artists, Thai martial artists, water skiers, and enthusiastic home readers in our class?!
