Kingfishers Diary - Keeping you up to date with what we have been doing in class.
Last week we enjoyed taking part in European Languages Day. In Kingfishers, we focused on Italy. We learnt how to count to 10 in Italian and even took part in a game of Italian bingo! We also looked at the work of Giuseppe Acrimboldo, a famous Italian artist who created portraits of people using vegetables! This week, we are continuing our work on The Stone Age Boy and we are writing our own version of this time travelling story called 'The Modern Age Girl'. We look forward to sharing our stories soon.
So far this term we have launched our new topic by looking at a picture from a Stone Age camp and discussing what life was like such as: the tools they used, the food they ate and the importance of where they settled. We are looking forward to finding out more about how the life has changed throughout the ages.
In English we are reading the book 'The Stone Age Boy.' We have used freeze frames and questioning to dig deeper into the thoughts and feelings of characters in the book before writing these into speech bubbles. We have then used this to write direct speech using inverted commas.
