People who help us

This term we have been looking at where we live and people who help us. We’ve been out and about in our local area to the park, spar and post office to see how it all works. We have also been lucky to have visits from members of the police, fire service, RNLI and NHS to tell us more about their jobs.

English Week and World Book Day:
Recently, we spent a full week learning all about the book ‘The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch’. We really enjoyed learning all about this text and we completed lots of different activities based around the story. Blackpool Catering Services even came into school to help us create some amazing packed lunches. World Book Day also happened within this week and we really enjoyed dressing us as a character from our favourite book. Can you guess who we came as?

Maths Week:
In February, we had another special week here at Kincraig. The whole week was focused all around Maths. We spent lots of time looking at compass points, coordinates and even measurements. All of our activities managed to include our topic of Africa in some way too. Just look at our coordinate safari grid. Are you good at reading coordinates?

Our Class Assembly
To celebrate our new topic of learning, Amazing Africa, we created a class assembly to tell all of our parents and the rest of the school all the wonderful things we already know about Africa and just some of the fun and interesting facts that we have already learnt in the short time we have been studying Africa so far. We can’t wait to learn much, much more in the coming weeks. Roar!

Christmas Class Party
We also held a class party to celebrate all the fantastic effort and hard work that we had done throughout the Autumn term. We really loved all of the snacks, party games and even our visit from Santa.

To celebrate Christmas and the birth of baby Jesus, we have recently been working hard to produce a whole school nativity. The part that our class focused on re-telling was where Mary and Joseph had made their way to Bethlehem before being told there was no room at any of the inns.

Post Office Visit
Just before Christmas, we spent time looking at how the Post Office and Postmen help us within our community. We learnt all about how letters are sent and delivered. We then took a trip to our local Sorting Office and were shown how they receive, sort, check and then deliver the letters and parcels as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Halloween Disco
Oh my goodness! Something has gone bump in the night… Recently, we all attended the ‘Kincraig Spooky Disco’ to celebrate Halloween. We loved dancing to some fantastic songs and playing exciting games. Just look at some of the amazing costumes we all came in!

Nurse Visit
Recently, we had a visit from some local Nurses who came to talk to us about how they help people every day at work. They spent time discussing how we can keep ourselves healthy and avoid having to see Doctors and Nurses. They then spent time showing us how we are able to use and apply a variety of different bandages to protect wounds from germs and help them heal as quickly as possible.

Police Visit
As part of our People Who Help Us topic, Bispham Police came to see us and explained what their role is within the community. They spoke to us about how they can help us if we are in trouble or if we get lost. They also explained to us that sometimes people who are dangerous or do the wrong things have to be arrested. They even demonstrated this to us by putting Mr Bracegirdle in handcuffs.
