Kingfishers learning about fossils for our Stone Age topic. Mr Stratton kindly brought in his fossils for the children to see and touch real fossils.
Our class discussion and work on our class story 'The Lost Happy Endings'.
We have had a very busy week in Kingfishers exploring and learning about lots of new subjects.
In literacy we have been reading our class book which features a character called Jub who has six fingers and scatters 'happy endings' so that the children all have a peaceful nights sleep. We have just been introduced to a new and sinister character and the children have been busy writing descriptive phrases and similes to describe her.
In maths we have been strengthening our place value knowledge and have worked on our partitioning numbers in a variety of ways. We have also spent a lot of time improving our reasoning skills.
In Art we have been learning about 'line' and how some artists such as Paul Klee and Picasso were fascinated by line drawings. The children have used a range of graded sketching pencils and have tried to draw with a single unstopping line.
In Science we have been learning about the human body and this week we were learning about the skeleton and also the brain and the nervous system.
In History we have been learning about Early Man and have studied the changes from the Mesolithic to the Neolithic period. The children learned how Early Man began as nomadic hunter-gatherers but then developed into farmers who began to build simple but permanent homes and raise animals and crops.
Finally we have enjoyed learning about Hinduism and how people of this faith worship and the key festivals in their calendar. This week we have learnt about Diwali and Holi.
