We have worked together to write our class charter. We thought carefully about our rights, looking at the United Nations Convention for the Rights of the Child. Some of these rights for every child include being safe, having shelter, access to clean water, having enough food and health care, and a right to an education. We decided our rights were to have a classroom where we can learn, be free to share our ideas, and feel safe. We then needed to think about our responsibilities to make our classroom like we wanted. This is our final class charter. We added our aspiration to each of the wing feathers, and now we are working hard to make sure we succeed!
Kingfishers Class has had a suspected alien invasion. Under the instructions of Professor Roswell, an expert in Alien behaviour, an investigation of the crime scene was carried out. Working in teams, evidence was gathered and sent to the Alien Investigation Unit at Porton Down.
News Reporters in Action...
Following the alien Invasion in Kingfishers Class, we have been working in groups to produce and edit our own news reports. Each group had to allocate roles including a producer, news anchor, roving reporters, eye witnesses, camera and sound crew. Working together, they produced news scripts and then filmed their news report. Finally, using iMovie, the reports were edited and improved.
The Power of Practice!
Kingfishers Class have been using the Power of Practice to experiment and learn new techniques in Art. The final Kingfisher designs were used to illustrate their narrative poems.

Fire and Rescue in Action!
Kingfishers Class had a great time learning all about the role of the Fire and Rescue service, and fire safety. It was great to have the opportunity to see inside a fire engine and use the fire hose.
Take a look at some of the amazing Moon homework projects!
How can we use the Sun to tell the time?
We have been finding out all about our planet Earth and how our Solar System works. As part of our learning, we have been discovering why we have day and night, and investigating how the movement of Earth affects the angle of the sunlight hitting our planet. As part of the investigation, we had to plan, design and make our own sundials. We were amazed at the speed of Earth's movement, and how quickly the angle of the shadows changed over time.
Children in Need 2017
Here are some of Kingfishers Class' Children in Need T-Shirt designs!
Kingfishers Class had a great afternoon making Christmas Crafts with Parents, Grandparents and families. Everyone was busy making salt dough tree decorations and a reindeer snow scene. Hopefully, they will be decorating your trees at home very soon.
Six fantastic musicians from Kingfishers class have had the opportunity to perform on the clarinet, showing us the skills that have learnt during ten weeks of musicianship lessons. We really enjoyed the concert and hope that they continue to aspire towards improving their musical abilities.
