Activities in Kingfisher class 2022/23
Your class teacher will update this page at least once per term with photos and information on recent events or activities.
Here's a selection of activities we got up to in 2021/22
Party & ice cream fun in the woods
Here are the beach huts we made for design and technology. First we designed our huts and then learnt how to turn a box inside out using old boxes. We did this so we can recycle boxes and also be able to paint them. Finally we added lollipop sticks to complete the beach huts.
Commonwealth Day 2
Today we tried boxing, yoga, balloon volleyball and outdoor activities in the woods.
Day 1 Commonwealth Games.
Opening ceremony, wheelchair basketball, goal ball, netball and bowls.
Commonwealth Games Music
We listened to music from around the world and talked about how different it is. We were inspired by the musical 'Stomp' to make our own music. We made our own bands and used items found around the classroom and parts of our body too. We had great rhythm!
What a harvest we have grown in our courtyard over the last term. We picked and washed our strawberries and raspberries today and ate them before lunch. What a treat!
Stinging nettle crisps - did you like them?
Cress head sandwiches.
Outdoor Learning Day
We had a wonderful time exploring Berkhamsted Castle.
We climbed the Keep and kept a careful eye out for any dangerous enemies approaching. We found the kitchen to make lunch, looked down the wells and even found the royal palace.
We also walked around the outside of the castle to see the double moat.
On our return to school we could take part in a Battle of Hastings game and try some Medieval Stew that we had made.
Today, we had a visit from Sharon Fowler, the children's worker at Sunnyside Church. She talked to us about Easter and asked the children what they knew. She then read a story and helped them to retell the story with a quiz.
Afterwards we went outside to make crosses in nature and eat some delicious hot cross buns too!
George's Marvellous Medicine.
Red Nose Day.
Welcome to Australia!
We all loved dressing up in holiday clothes and bring suitcases ready for our adventures to Australia for cultural week.
We set up a airport scene, made our own passports, made and ate fairy bread ready for our long journey on the plane.
We tried to bring the rain with our very own rain dance.
Dacorum Sport Festival
