Welcome to Kingfisher Class!
We are a fun loving, enthusiastic Year 4 Class. Our teacher is Miss Ramsay and our teaching assistant is Mrs Wilders. We are looking forward to a fantastic year together.
Term 1 - Potions
Our first topic this year is Potions. Some fantastic learning is bubbling away in our classroom already... Our class text is Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling. We were all very excited by the delivery of 30 individual letters inviting us to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, we can't quite work out how Hedwig managed them all under his wing! In preparation, we have already brewed up an erupting potion. It caused many squeals as we watched the liquid erupt over the edge of the cup in a frothy explosion of colour. We are currently on a journey through Diagon Alley, describing our journey with fantastic expanded noun phrases, verbs and adverbs. The children tasted Butterbeer today, many describing it as 'frothy, fizzy and creamy'. Our sketching skills have been put to the test through drawing a Harry Potter portrait and we are all trying hard with our joined up handwriting. What with States of Matter in Science, greetings in Spanish, Place Value problems in Maths and e-safety in Computing it's already shaping up to be a busy and exhilarating term. We can't wait to follow Harry's journey on to Hogwarts and to continue our learning around Potions...
