Amazing writing
We have been learning the story of The Sorcerer's Apprentice. The children worked really hard on planning their stories. They thought about characters, settings and solving their own problems at the end. Well done Mallard

Primary Stars at Kingfisher
Over the last few weeks, we have had Lewis from Yeovil Town Football Club come in and work with us during our PE sessions. He has taught us lots about teamwork, respect and we have played lots of new games. As a final goodbye, and in linking with YTFC's adopt a school program, we had a visit from two players from the first team. It was very exciting and we were all given a Primary Stars T-shirt along with a YTFC shirt signed by all the players for our school.

Space Day in Mallard
On the 13th November, Kingfisher Primary School celebrated Space Day. As a school, we all came in dressed in costumes and spent the day learning all about space. We were lucky enough to have the Science Dome for the day too. In Mallard, we went inside and learnt all about the Solar System and the stars. It was great fun and we all really enjoyed it.

Visit from Carymoor
We had a visit from Gary who works at the Carymoor education centre in Castle Cary. He talked to us about our impact on the environment and how the choices we make can have huge consequences. In our workshop, we talked about some of the different birds in the UK and we each got to plant some cress in a biodegradable pot. A great day.

Working Scientifically
This term, we have been looking at materials and their properties. We have been able to identify lots of materials around us and can state where they come from. Earlier in the term, we designed and carried out an experiment to see which materials were waterproof. Amazingly, the paper towel kept the water out!

Alpaca Visit
We had a visit from some very soft friends this term. We were lucky enough to have two Alpacas on our school playground. We found out lots on information about where they came from and their soft wool. After that, we were able to feed them and stroke their fur.

Our Big Write
We worked really hard this week learning all about the story of Goldilocks. We talked through the story Mr Green read. We discussed ways to make it better using lots of exciting adjectives and detail. After this, we worked really hard to create our own versions and we were really proud of them.
