26.01.22 - Church visit

Today, we went on a trip to All Saints Church! We learnt all about what a church is used for, why people go to church, and we completed some activities about this. We also had juice and biscuits to finish! We really enjoyed it.

21.01.22 - Gingerbread Man!

Over the past 2 weeks, Kings Lea have been doing the gingerbread man story in Literacy. Crazy things have been happening! Yesterday, they designed some traps and today, they didn't catch one, they caught 28 Gingerbread men!!!

14.01.22 - Design and Technology

This term, our topic is healthy eating. Today, we tasted lots of different types of fruit. We found the grapefruit very tangy!! 

13.01.22 - Science Experiment

Today, we have been looking at different materials. We have been testing them to find out if they bend, twist, stretch or squash. We had lots of fun!

12.01.22 - Gingerbread men

Today we had lots of fun baking gingerbread men! We are hoping to find out where the gingerbread man has gone... Miss Starkey made a big gingerbread man for her but it disappeared! Where has it gone? Has someone stolen it or has it run away... we are going to become detectives! 

17.12.21 - Our Class Christmas Song

16.12.21 - We had so much fun on Christmas party day! 

14.12.21 - Our class treat for filling the Pom Pom jar!

Today we baked shortbread. Then, we ate our shortbread biscuits and had a hot chocolate whilst watching a film!

19.11.21 - Children in Need

Today we dressed up as something beginning with the first letter of our name. There were some fabulous outfits in Kings Lea! We have had a super day.

12.11.21 - Hats project

In preparation for our hat project, we tested to see which materials were waterproof. We had lot of fun. We realised that cellophane and tinfoil were the best materials! 

12.11.21 - Festival of Triangles

Today, we celebrated the 'Festival of Triangles'. We did some maths work on triangles first. Then, we got creative and we carefully cut lots of multi-coloured triangles out of tissue paper. After that, we glued them onto plastic wallets. On Monday they will be dry and they'll be stuck on the window for the sun to shine through! 

05.11.21 - Hats 

In DT, we are looking at hats. We will be making hats soon! Our first job was to look at some hats that already exist and say whether we think they'd be waterproof or not. We had lots of fun trying on Miss Starkey's hats! 

03.11.21 - Autumn Walk 

In Literacy, we are learning all about Autumn to write an Autumn poem. We enjoyed our Autumn walk around school. 

21.10.21 - Halloween 

07.10.21 - Teddy Bears Picnic

Today, we had our Teddy Bears Picnic. We had a super day. Miss Starkey was so proud of us! 

We started the day off by doing some colour by number - a picture of a Teddy Bears Picnic. We then made some sandwiches - we did an amazing job. Miss Starkey said they could've been served in a cafe! After that, we made some shortbread biscuits. It was our first time cooking in Kings Lea and we got 5 pom poms - which meant our pom pom jar was full! 

Then, we ate our sandwiches, crisps, and jelly in the hall. After that, we had our biscuit and juice. 

In the afternoon, Miss Starkey gave us a treat because we filled the pom pom jar! We got to watch a film AND play some party games. 

We have had a super day!  

01.10.21 - Tomato and Basil soup!

Jenson, a member of our class, kindly brought in some basil that he had grown at home. Our chef, Aaron, made some tomato and basil soup with it (he also made some tasty bread). We all had a taste - it was delicious! 

Thank you!
