Kilk’s Got Talent - Duckpool - March 2024

World Book Day 2024


As part of our unit of work on 'Animals, including Humans' we have been talking about how we can keep healthy. We have been learning about the importance of eating healthy food, doing regular exercise, having a good night's sleep and keeping ourselves clean. 


Here the children had to sort pictures of food into different groups. They chose groups like healthy and unhealthy and then some went onto putting the foods into groups like fruit and vegetables, carbohydrates, meat, dairy foods and junk food.

The Great Fire of London

The Great Fire of London started in a bakery in Pudding Lane in 1666. As part of our learning we had a lot of fun making bread.

At the beginning of the Spring term 2024 we learnt about what London is like nowadays compared to 1666 when The Great Fire of London occurred. 

Here are some models that the children made of landmarks in London. Can you guess what they are?

Making Faces

We have made models of our own faces out of clay and have then painted them.  We mixed the colours to get the shade we wanted for our faces.  The faces will be going on display when they are finally completed. Please have a look at some pictures of us working very hard to get our faces just right!


We have been learning about lighthouses, so in Science we've been trying to get bulbs to light up using batteries and wires.


We have enjoyed reading stories about Mr Grinling, who is The Lighthouse Keeper. The children have used these stories as inspiration so as to make their own model lighthouses. Come and see more of them in our classroom!


We designed and made owl puppets using felt and our sewing skills. Afterwards, we got into groups to write a play, before performing it to the rest of the class.

Making Rainforest Biscuits - February 2017

As part of our topic on the rainforest, we made biscuits using ingredients that are found in the rainforest. We then used our instruction writing skills to let other people know hoe to make these lovely biscuits.

Our visit to Newquay Zoo - January 2017

We visited Newquay Zoo with Widemouth class as part of our topic on the rainforest.  We learnt lots about the different types of creatures which live in the rainforest.  We used our learning to write fact files and riddles.
