Kingfishers are resourceful, hardworking and as the oldest children in the Year 3/4 team, we also bring vibrancy and imagination to our daily learning.
This Terms Theme
'THE DAY IN THE LIFE OF A GLOBAL CITIZEN'
In our learning we will be looking at what makes us unique and shapes our identity as a global citizen. In doing so, we will be looking at out local environment and comparing that to another European country. In October, Year 4 will be involved in an exciting Unesco project where we are performing music in a local Geopark alongside other schools from other countries through a live link.

Mastering Place Value
This week in Maths, Kingfishers have continued looking at 1000 more or less and ensuring we are secure in our understanding of place value. We've used many resources and taken on some really tricky problems to solve. For some, this has been a frustrating process that has required a significant amount of perseverance and creative strategic thinking!
Thursday 6th September - Brixham Museum Visit
Kingfishers joined Kites on Thursday to hear from staff and volunteers from Brixham Museum about the history of fishing in Brixham. We were able to use a machine to make ropes, find out about morse code and how the trawlers would have used it, and find out about the Great Gale of Brixham in 1866. This visit has kicked off our theme for the term, looking at our local history and what makes us who we are.
