SCIENCE WEEK!

Kingfishers have had lots of fun this week! They have made 3D models of flowering plants, created slime, produced art from bubbles and even learnt about capillary action using kitchen roll and felt tips! Well done, Kingfishers.

READING CLUB!

A scrumptious hot chocolate and a good book - what more do you need?

Kingfisher Class love Reading Club!

We've had some excellent home-learning come in - well done Kingfishers!

Kingfisher Class have been super busy this week! We have created our own Kandinsky-inspired art and have started making balloon-powered cars to compare different forces and speed.

Christmas pompoms!

Clay fossil models!

We demonstrated the process of fossilisation using shells and clay!


First, we imprinted shells into clay to mimic animal bones leaving imprints in the earth.
Next, we imitated the fleshy parts of the animal rotting away by removing the shells.
Then, we imagined layers of sediment covering the specimen over thousands of years by covering the imprint with more clay.
When the two layers of clay were separated, it looked just like a 3D fossil and its imprint!
Finally, we painted the fossils with metallic paint to replicate fossils which were made of pyrite minerals!

 

Virtual Lesson from Charmouth Education Centre!

Kingfisher class had a virtual lesson about our topic.
We were shown the fossilised skull of a Plesiosaur. It was so huge that the eye socket was the size of an adult's head!!
