It has been a busy term for the Kingfishers. In our topic work, we learned about the collaboration between Quentin Blake (illustrator) and Roald Dahl. The children recreated art works in the style of Quentin Blake. We also created our own abstract mosaics. Our science work focused on different sorts of rocks, their origins and properties. Many children had fascinating fossils to bring in. We learned about the pioneering work of the little known Mary Anning, who discovered some of the most important fossils ever found.
Our maths work concentrated on multiplication and division, especially on applying these in new and unfamiliar contexts. In P.E. we created dance sequences based on natural disasters, such as tsunami and volcanoes. We studied Roald Dahl’s ‘Revolting Rhymes’ in detail, and this led to the children creating their own humorous poems and fairy-tales ‘in reverse’, imagining events seen from the points of view of the traditional villains!
