What a great Poetry Week we are having!  We hope you enjoy our performance of 'The Rhythm of Life', by Michael Rosen.  Click here and enjoy! 

In Kingfishers, we have been learning about The Gunpowder Plot & non fiction texts this half term. We have been working hard to produce a text map, to help us remember key facts and features of an information text. We’ve used expanded noun phrases, conjunctions and a range of punctuation to add description, detail and effect.  Click here to watch our super video!

Fire Brigade Visit

On Tuesday 5th November 2019, Kingfishers class were lucky enough to receive a visit from Wirksworth Fire Brigade. They arrived in a fire engine, which the children all sat in, told us all about their roles in the community and showed us the equipment that they use. We talked about how this equipment compared to that used back in 1666 when the Great Fire of London broke out. The children were fascinated and asked some fantastic questions to help us learn even more!

Great Fire of London

Over the half term holidays, we asked the children to create a model of a 17th Century house, from the time of the Great Fire of London. Here are some of the fantastic models that they brought in to share with us!
