Pyramid homework:

This week, children brought in and presented to the class their fantastic pyramids they had made for homework. We were treated to a wide variety: lego, wooden, craft, edible (very tasty!), cardboard and even a film trailer. WOW! Well done Kingfisher Class!

WOW event to kick-start our Egyptian topic: making scarab beetles out of clay and taking part in an Egyptian dig.

Take a look at some of our work and sometimes us in the classroom. You are always welcome to come into school and take a closer look. You can see from the displays in our classrooms the variety of topics we cover. As the year progresses, the displays change. By July, you will be able to see the whole range of subjects we have covered. Our Working walls help us learn – the content builds as the term progresses.
