Kingfishers have thoroughly enjoyed creating wonderful clay masks inspired by the Mayans. They learnt how to mould, roll, cut and attach pieces of clay using hatching and slip, and then how to blend afterwards. It was a long process: kilning the clay, glazing and then re-firing to then reveal the final result. We are so pleased with how fantastic they look!
Kingfishers have also been creating amazing spy gadgets and then writing adverts to persuade people to buy them. Their persuasive techniques seemed to have come naturally to them, using emotive language, rhetorical questions, superlatives and alliteration to write some amazing pieces!
The champions of the Dragons’ Den competition were finally revealed last week (after Storm Eunice, half term and then staff absence had all delayed the announcement). As mentioned in the newsletter, the competition was fierce and the judges had such a difficult job choosing an overall winner; after much discussion, the Spy Lipstick was deemed the outright winner. Well done!
After over eighteen months, the Kingfishers finally got to perform a live sharing assembly in person, in the hall, to an actual audience! As you can imagine, they were thrilled and worked very hard to deliver a spy-themed assembly including an opening movement sequence to the Mission Impossible theme tune and a choral performance of the poem ‘My Teacher has a Secret’.
