Welcome to Kingfisher Class

Year 1 and 2

Term 6

     Go Wild!


This term in Kingfishers we are going to be learning about Animals. We shall be looking at different animal life cycles and considering what animals (and humans!) need to stay healthy.

We are looking forward to the arrival of some new friends!



Mrs Gurr taught us how to play the Ukulele.

We have loved looking after the chicks we don't want them to go!

We had lots of fun playing Cricket this morning

Captain Jim's visit

Can you write a set of clear instructions?

Pirate Day! Blackbeard has been captured!

Finally, we have heard from Blackbeard. Rodney and Arlo are safe. Blackbeard will only return Rodney and Arlo  if we write him a letter telling him why we need them back in Kingfisher Class. We sent our letters off to Blackbeard, but we haven't heard anything! So, we have decided to set a trap to catch him!


The search begins...
