Welcome to Hummingbirds Class
On this page we will be sharing some of the fantastic things we do in class. Our topic this term is Water, Water Everywhere! - read our Class Newsletter to find out more.
RAF Coningsby Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visit 4 December
The children in Hummingbirds Class completed their World War II topic by visiting RAF Coningsby and seeing some actual WWII aircraft. They enjoyed seeing a couple of Hurricane Hawkers and Spitfires, as well as the American aircraft the Dakota and the wonderful British Bomber, The Lancaster! They learnt about each aircraft's duty and role in the war and how many were made and lost. The children were even treated to a testing of the engine of a Spitfire...this was rather loud!!!
It was a wonderful trip and all the children did the school proud as usual through great manners, behaviours and enthusiasm.
The Term So Far.......Science
Science has been full of investigation and questioning so far this year. Whilst looking at forces and magnets, the children have explored friction on different surfaces, magnetic strength through different materials and even used jelly and custard as part of their scientific exploration! They have developed their scientific enquiry skills, learnt about different magnetic features and forces and overall had fun doing this. Keep up the scientific thinking Young Hummingbird Einsteins!
The Term So Far........PBones
This week saw the beginning of the Hummingbirds musical instrument session. Every week they have been developing their singing with Miss Justyna but now they are exploring the world of PBones (Plastic Trombones)! Even Mr Pearson got in on the excitement and had a try!
The Term So Far.....PE
So far this year the children have developed their football and hockey skills. They learnt defending and attacking skills in football and these have been transferable to hockey. Everyone loves when the Inspire+ coaches come in and the enthusiasm for sport continues to be evident. Swimming has also taken place this year and the progress every child has made is wonderful. Well done Hummingbirds!!!
