Kingsley and Redgrave Pet Show

Redgrave and Kingsley enjoyed a visit from Honey the hamster. The children asked Basma lots of questions about how she looks after her and what Honey enjoys doing. A big thank you to Basma for kindly offering to bring Honey in as part of our topic.

Redgrave and Kingsley Topic
The Reception children enjoyed their first P.E lesson out on the field this morning. We worked in teams to complete a relay course and cheered on our fellow team mates.
The Evil Pea is on the loose. This week, Kingsley class have been trying really hard to find the Evil Pea. We have made traps, made more superhero vegetables and have written wanted posters. He still is not found. Please help us to find him. Look at all the mischievous things that he has done in our classroom. Firstly, he strapped vegetables to different areas in the room, then he put Supertato in jelly and left us a voice message.
As part of our superhero topic, Kingsley and Redgrave classes found vegetables from the story of "Supertato." They were in distress and needed help. We think that he evil pea has made them all sad and in need of some help. We hope that Supertato will come to save the day.
Kingsley Year 1 English
This morning we had a visit from a super scientist called Josh. He conducted lots of cool experiments using dry ice. We asked lots of questions and learnt that dry ice is extremely cold carbon dioxide. Later we conducted some of our own experiments using everyday ingredients.
Kingsley and Redgrave Welly Walk
Redgrave and Kingsley had a visit from Paramedics Paul and Fred from Wiltshire Air Ambulance this morning. They answered all of our questions and even taught us how to put somebody in the recovery position. We then used all of the coins we had brought in to make a H for helipad. The children had great fun and we managed to raise £50.35 which will go towards their new air base. Thank you for all of your donations. An excellent morning for a worthy cause!
Reception children had to become police officers and investigate a crime on Tuesday morning. The children came in to find rather a mess and some footprints. They worked out Taylor the T-Rex was missing along with a box of toy cars! Many of the children hoped Taylor was OK and not in danger. The Reception police worked hard to problem solve and work out who the theif was. The footprints left were smaller than an adult and the children took their finger prints to support their line of enquiry. Most children came to the conclusion it was indeed Father Christmas who needed toys to give to children for Christmas. The small footprints were that of an elf. Will we ever find the culprit . . . the case remains open!
Redgrave and Kingsley PCSO Visit
Following our visit last week from the Fire Brigade, the children have been using their balance, coordination, strength and flexibility to become Real-life Superheroes.
On Monday we were lucky enough to receive a visit from Jemma who works for Wiltshire Air Ambulance. She told us about how the air ambulance helps people in an emergency and talked about some of the patients they have rescued. Jemma brought along a flight helmet and uniform which were modelled beautifully by two of our pupils. Thank you once again to Jemma, the children really enjoyed the experience and asked some fantastic questions.
Yesterday afternoon we celebrated Pancake Day by decorating a pancake each. The children enjoyed smothering their pancake in syrup, lemon juice and chocolate spread before selecting their toppings of blueberries, banana, marshmallows and raisins. We had all kinds of designs from dots, to smiley faces. It was rather evident around many mouths how much the children enjoyed their pancakes!
The children of Redgrave and Kingsley had a fantastic time sharing Block 2's learning with their adults. Thank you to everyone who managed to attend and make this possible.
Redgrave and Kingsley had a lovely walk to Trowbridge Library this afternoon. We enjoyed several stories read to us by Tracey and were able to collect more stamps on our cards contributing towards our reading challenge. Remember, the end of November is fast approaching. If your child has any completed cards please return them swiftly to their class teacher.
Kingsley Dogs Trust Visit
Emily from the Dogs Trust brought Buster the dog into Kingsley class. We learnt all about caring for a dog and how to keep them healthy. We had lots of fun.
Kingsley and Redgrave Winter Wonderland topic
Jack Frost visited Redgrave and Kingsley to help launch their new Winter Wonderland topic. He told us a story and spoke about what he does. He also gave us some jewels.
Redgrave and Kingsley class invited their parents into class. We thought of ideas of what we could make in our cafe. We decided to make banana splits and biscuits. Our parents helped us to make these. Thank you to all parents that came along to this afternoon. We had great fun! Keep a look out for our Block 2 parents afternoon date.
Redgrave and Kingsley had a visit from members of staff from Tesco Trowbridge. We learnt about different foods and also tried different foods. It was great fun!
Thank you to all Parents and Carers who attended our first Stay and Play of the academic year. The children thoroughly enjoyed sharing their learning with you and welcoming you into their classroom. Our next Stay and Play date will be announced in our letter introducing our new topic for Block two.
Redgrave and Kingsley class went on our first Welly Walk of the academic year last Friday. We had great fun exploring our school grounds and looking for signs of Autumn. We worked in groups of three to tick off what we found on our Autumn checklist. Everything collected is now available in our class to explore and extend our learning.
