Kingfisher Primary School 2023-2024

Year 6 work with artist, Darrell Wakelam

Pupils in Year 6 worked with visiting artist, Darrell Wakelam, in February to create a wonderful piece of art which displays our school motto of 'Be the best you can be.' They used their art skills along with skills in resilience, creativity and collaboration to create this excellent final piece.

WORLD BOOK DAY 2024

Children and staff at Kingfisher Primary School, fully embraced World Book Day and came dressed for school in some spectacular costumes. The day started with a Whole School assembly where the children received a message from author, Sarah Oliver. As a school, all children will work with Sarah to create our own picture book which will be published in the summer term. Throughout the day, children engaged in a variety of activities aimed to promote reading for pleasure. The day concluded with our half-termly ‘Rock up and Read’ sessions, where parents came into school and shared a book with their child.

World Book Day

A special visit...

Just before Christmas, all pupils from nursery and school gathered on the playground and looked up to the skies to see if they could spot some very special visitors. We were incredibly lucky to have a navy helicopter land on our school field, with two of Santa's special helpers from RNAS Yeovilton on board who collected letters written by the children to Father Christmas. 

Friday 6th October saw our first Family Learning session of this year, with visiting artist, Darrell Wakelam, leading an art session with our Y3 pupils and their families. 18 parents/grandparents were in attendance for the Roman mask making morning which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.

Outdoor learning is in full swing this autumn. Year 6 have been exploring the school environment, identifying and classifying living things. Pupils in Year 3 have been acquiring new skills, whittling sticks and working collaboratively.

A huge thank you to our incredibly generous families for their massive food donations as we celebrated harvest festival. We shared songs and poems about harvest in assembly. With all donations going to The Lord’s Larder in Yeovil.

European Day of Languages 

 

On Tuesday 26th September 2023, we celebrated our Annual European Day of Languages.

The Little Kingfisher Day Nursery focused on Spanish and eating some lovely paella and patatas bravas and they made some lovely Spanish crafts- practising their collaging skills.

Reception, Year 1 and Year 5 all focussed on learning about France and the French language- learning colours, creating fact files and using dictionaries. 

Years 2 and 3 focussed on learning some German greetings, numbers and Geography while creating their fact files.

Years 4 and 6 focussed on learning some Italian - learning the colours and crafting to make Venetian masks, as well as learning the numbers and learning some greetings.

All classes had the opportunity to try food from their countries and had a fabulous day learning about different cultures- as well as learning to sing a song in the language that they were focussing on! Well done, Kingfisher! 

Year 6 enjoying their outdoor learning where Science met Art. Pupils collected different plants which they pressed between cloth using a rubber mallet. This released the chlorophyll (green pigment) to produce symmetrical patterns. The results were brilliant!

On Sunday 10th September, our incredibly talented Ukulele Club played at the Yeovil Ukulele Festival 2023. The festival took place at Haselbury Mill and the feedback from onlookers was fantastic. A big well done to our talented musicians and also Mr Frisby & Mrs Streetin for their hard work.

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.
