What we have been learning about this week

This week has been our first full week back and we have been busy in Kingfisher Class! 

In Maths, we have all been using practical equipment to develop our understanding of Place Value with great success. In English, we are working towards writing a story based on 'How to be a Viking' - these are going to be amazing! 

P.E. and swimming have started properly. Our P.E. is Tennis so we have been practising footwork and aim. Our Viking topic is under way - we have learnt where the Vikings came from and why they are compared to pirates. 

This week, Kingfishers have been learning about Vikings and how and why they travelled. 


We have also continued to use repeating patterns as part of our artwork, to which we will add portraits of our families for display in the classroom and hall. We are looking at the work of Sonia Boyce. 


In English, we wrote stories and started to look at the features of non-chronological reports.


The children are getting really good at 'drop shots' in tennis!
