Kingfishers - Year 3/4

Welcome to Kingfishers!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to our exciting new class page.  I will be updating it with news, children's work, achievements and much more very soon.  Our class newsletters will now also be available here too.  I am really looking forward to receiving your feedback.  Please let me know if there's anything you'd like to see here on our class page.

Below will be the latest homework. This will be renewed fortnightly on a Friday. Please can your child complete this on a double page spread in their books.
As well as this homework your child has a Mathletics login where there will be new tasks regularly.

This week in Kingfisher class, we have been designing our own volcanoes (thinking about materials we might need and why they are the appropriate choice, technique that we needed to create the layers of the volcano that weren’t too soggy!) and creating a chemical reaction that replicated the eruption of Mount Vesuvius. This linked perfectly to everything we have been learning about in Geography.

We then evaluated our designs and thought about how our volcanoes could have been improved, some children wished that they had put more layers on their volcanoes so that it could have been thicker! Everyone enjoyed seeing their volcanoes explode! J

This activity led into the children writing their own instructions, from their own experience, to inform someone else on how to make a volcano!

*Please note that if you have not seen your child in any pictures, it is because we are waiting for the permission slips to be returned.


Congratulations to Ella Amess and Freya Haynes - read their stories on our Parents' Page under Latest News.
