This term we have been learning about the Romans. We have made fantastic shields and swords in Art and have completed a step by step tutorial on drawing a Roman soldier- We have a fantastic couple of artists in Kingfisher class.
In History we have learnt about roman life, roman soldiers and roman food which we were disgusted to find out all the horrible things they used to eat. We decided that flamingo tongue was not something we want to eat at home.
In cooking we have learnt to make a sandwich with our favourite filling, we have made a pizza and chocolate rice crispy cakes.
We then learnt the most important job of all washing up we are all fantastic at this now!
On a Friday this term we have completed a life skills lesson. The children have enjoyed learning to put a pillow on a pillow case, learnt to make scrambled egg on toast for breakfast and learnt the importance of cleaning our teeth and keeping our bodies clean and healthy.
A very busy first term in Kingfishers! The nicer weather at the start of the term meant that we were able to go on some exciting school trips outside. As the weather has become colder we have been to; Hertford Museum, Van Hages, Hertford Library and Jump City. All of the children have shown how safe and sensible they are able to be offsite.
This term we have really enjoyed cooking and have made lots of sweet and savoury treats-the children particularly enjoyed making cake pops. The children enjoy learning about the food and trying the things that they have made.
Our topic in the second half of the term was ‘significant people’; the children have thought about people that are significant to them and enjoyed thinking about people who are significant to different celebrations– we particularly enjoyed getting dressed up and acting out the story of Guy Fawkes.
The children enjoyed the run up to Christmas this term and made lots of decorations and cooking to go home with them. We thought about the different seasons when we made calendars and got dressed up for summer, autumn, winter and spring.
