All pupils participated in World Mental Health Day turning Kingfisher yellow for the day. We raised over £270 for Young Minds.

Pupils in Y4 worked with artisit, Darrell Wakelam, and created this incredible art to celebrate Black History Month. This wonderful artwork was created by the children.

September 2021 saw a return to 'normal' schooling with children being able to mix with other age groups and be altogether in the same room. We took this opportunity to start whole school assemblies and singing practice. Our pupils returned very positively in the first few weeks of term. Below are a selection of photo showing some of the pupils' achievements and activities.

Kingfisher Primary School 2020 - 2021

The 2020-2021 academic year was very challenging due to the on-going COVID-19 pandemic. However, it didn't stop us from enriching our curriculum to ensure our pupils learned about a wider range of engaging topics.

KS1 Sports Day in more glorious sunshine!

Two pupils from Y4 were invited by Yeovil’s Mayor to the 100 year anniversary of the town’s war memorial this morning. They laid a posy of flowers to remember this who lost their lives during WW1 and WW2.

Olympian and international rugby union star, Sam Cross, was kind enough to let all of our pupils hold his Olympic silver medal during his visit today. Special thank you to Sam Cross and Persimmon Homes for organising.

KS2 Sports Day in the sunshine!

We are very proud that one of our pupils was recognised by Brymptom Parish Council with their annual school award. Evie raised £280 during lockdown for Yeovil Hospital Charity by making and selling key rings.

History Day - 18.06.21 - The focus of the day was The Royal Family (past and present). The day ended with a socially-distance tea party outside.

Easter Bonnet competition winners and parade.

All classes enjoyed their VR workshop today where they deepened their understanding of current and past topics.

Year 2 pupils had great fun creating artwork based on the wonderful story The Day The Crayons Quit by the super talented Drew Daywalt and illustrated by the amazingly awesome Oliver Jeffers. Huge thanks to Darrell Wakelam for his amazing creativity and direction!

Sharandys Bird of Prey brought these four beautiful owls into school today. All children from our Little Kingfishers to Y4 thoroughly enjoyed their display.

Christmas 2020

Our first inter-house Cross Country competition was a big hit!

Kingfisher Remembers - Nov 2020

Children at school enjoyed a skipping workshop today with @lizskip . As you can see, the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. The school have purchased each child their own rope to continue skipping both at school and at home!

Our children found out today which of our new four houses they are in. Our houses are: Sea King, Lynx, Wessex & Apache. Helicopters play an important role within our local community and it’s important for our pupils to understand that.

Pete The Poet - October 2020

Rocktapus

On Monday Andy and Tom from Rocktapus came to visit us and they worked with the children to create a school 'rock' song. It was based around the school values and motto and the children gave ideas for the lyrics. It was amazing and we all couldn't stop singing it for the rest of the day!

Kingfisher's Got Talent 2020

Kingfisher’s Got Talent was a huge success!  Well done to everyone who took part, especially to the winner Oliver Finch who dazzled us with his guitar playing. We hope you enjoy browsing through the photos below.

 

Africa Day

At Kingfisher we have recently celebrated 'Africa day' where the children spent the day dressed in colours from the African flags. It was lovely to see so many bright colours, some children even wore traditional African dress! The day started with a slide show and talk from Western Gazette photographer Len Copland, who recently visited Africa and took some amazing photos of animals in their natural habitat. This was followed by mask making, necklace making, food tasting and even some African dancing! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the African themed day.

Kingfisher Carol Concert

Thank you to everyone who came and supported our Christmas carol concert. All of the children sang beautifully and I'm sure you'll agree that it was a fantastic performance and all the children should be very proud of themselves.  

Helicopter visit

On Tuesday 10th December we were very excited to have a helicopter land on the school field! Inside were two elves who had come to collect the children's letters for Father Christmas. It was very exciting!

Harold the Giraffe

We are thrilled to see Harold the Giraffe up in the stairwell. It is amazing to see how big giraffes are compared to ourselves! We can also feel proud that we all helped to make this amazing piece of artwork with Daryl.

Football Activities

Kingfisher Year 2 children and Preston Primary Year 2 children recently enjoyed an afternoon of Football activities. 6 different activities took place including matches and passing skills. The afternoon encouraged team play and sportsmanship and was well supported by parents from both schools.

Hoop Ball Tournament

The children from Year 1 joined forces with Year 1 children from Preston Primary recently for a Hoop Ball tournament. The children were split into mixed teams and enjoyed a fun and exciting afternoon playing in a number of matches, resulting in a Final. Thank you to parents from both schools for coming along and supporting the event.

Giant Giraffe Sculpture

At the start of the Summer Term, we had a visit from a fantastic artist called Darrell. Darrell works with lots of materials to create sculptures. He helped us make a beautiful giraffe for the school. It was quite tricky and very sticky but great fun to all work as a team. Each class had a session in which they contributed their part to the sculpture and the result was amazing.

Easter Bonnets

Thank you very much for all of your efforts with the fabulous Easter Bonnets. The children all looked amazing!

Science Discovery Week

As part of Science Discovery week, we had a great day taking part in lots of different science experiments. We all split into 6 different groups and made our way around 6 amazing activities. We made dancing worms with Mrs January, it was great to see them come to life. With Mrs Francis, we made giant bubbles that were nearly as big as us! Mr Green let us use some microscopes to look at everyday things 1000x closer. It was great fun. We made Marshmallow towers with Mrs Haigh, lilies with Mrs Kerrigan and planted sunflowers with Mrs Denman. It was a fantastic day!

New Play Equipment

All of the children are thoroughly enjoying the new play equipment that was fitted during the February half term.

Willow Classroom

We were very lucky to have a visit from Stefan this term. He came to the school to talk to us about Willow and how we can use it to make a living structure. Through the sun, wind and rain, we worked as a team to create an amazing Willow Dome.

Yeovil Town Football Training
Over the next few weeks, children at Kingfisher will have the opportunity to train with members of Yeovil Town Football Club. The children will be practising lots of different skills and learning what it takes to follow their dreams to become football stars. 
Our New Nurture Room
We are very luck to have a new Nurture Room here at Kingfisher. In this room, we run small groups where we talk about how the children can learn and grow emotionally, culturally and spiritually. It is a fantastic safe space in which the children feel safe to share their thoughts. This is something we really value at Kingfisher. 

PTA School Disco

 

Thank you to the PTA for organising the recent school disco - the children really enjoyed it.
