Kingfishers

Welcome to Kingfishers Class!

 

Welcome to our class page, our teacher is Miss Wheatley and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs McCarthy. We are a mixed class of Year 3 and Year 4 children. 

In our Summer Term we are learning all about the Anglo-Saxons and the Vikings.

We will be venturing off on our residential trip to The Ancient Technology Centre where we will be transported back in time to the Viking period. We will wear traditional clothing from that period, prepare, cook and eat a typical Viking meal and spend the day learning Viking skills and crafts. Bedtime will see us snuggle down in the Longhouse on sheepskin mattresses with traditional stories being told. Look out for pictures to appear in our gallery.

 

This term we will also be looking at rocks and fossils in science and we will include some amazing artwork for ammonites during our special art week from 17th to 21st June.

 

Please look at our gallery to see what we have been doing.

Kingfishers enjoyed their recent trip to The Ancient Technology Centre in Cranbourne. We all had an amazing time! When we arrived we dressed up in traditional Viking clothing. We then set about earning our keep by making the vegetable stew for our lunch and dinner, grinding the corn into flour to make bread and making butter and cheese. We had to chop the wood for the fire to cook on, dig and clear the land for the vegetable patch and wash wool by making soap from a plant called soapwort. We relaxed in the evening playing traditional Viking games, learning to be Viking warriors, before listening to an ancient legend story in the earth-house. When bedtime finally arrived, we all snuggled down in the Viking longbarn lying on sheepskins.

The following day we transported ourselves back to modern times and enjoyed a days fun and exploring at Moors Valley.
