Well done to Luca, Mason and Aston for passing their 2x tables!
We are working really hard on our Fluency target for the first half of Autumn term in Kingfishers. Every day in at the beginning of our Maths lessons, we are finding different ways to make numbers up to 20, as the quicker we get at this, the easier we will find the calculations.
We are also working hard to practise our times tables. To pass each times table, we have to be able to complete 40 facts on that times table, including division facts, out of order in 5 minutes.
Well done to Hartley for passing his 2 times table!
This week as part of her Stone Age topic home learning, one of the children brought in some home made squash soup. The squash had been picked from her allotment. Comments from the other children included, "It was amazing and I could taste the potato!", "I liked it but it was peppery," and "It was delicious!"
Last week we had a lovely treat as one of the children brought in some blackberry muffins that he had made as part of our Stone Age topic home learning. He had picked the blackberries himself! Comments from the other children included, "They were the best cakes ever!" and "I didn't like them, I loved them!"
Also this week, one of the children brought in their Blue Peter badge to show! She had created and sent something to Blue Peter, and received a badge for her efforts. The children were amazed to hear that the badge allows her free entry into some fantastic attractions across the country, including lots of local places.

This week in Kingfishers we have done lots of new learning! In English, we have been continuing our Dragons learning. Today we created our own dragon, which we will describe next week.
In Maths, we have been thinking about place value, such as in 432 there are 4 hundreds, 3 tens and 2 ones. This will help us later in the term when we do adding and subtracting.
In PE, we have been completing different balances as part of our Gymnastics unit. We had to work on our own and as a group to do 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 point balances.
During our PATHS lesson on Thursday we thought about synonyms for different emotions, for example 'miserable' instead of 'sad'. In Music, we have started learning about Stone Age music, as our History topic this term will be learning about the Stone Age.
