Hummingbirds and Kingfishers Trips and Events

At Savile Park Primary we enrich the curriculum for our children by offering a range of educational visits and other activities that add to and complement what they learn in school. There are also a number of people who visit the school to support our work. Some visits relate directly to areas of learning for individual classes, whilst others relate to all our children.

In Literacy we looked at the poem ‘Mrs Sprockett’s Strange Machine’. We practised reading the poem in different ways and then thought about how we could perform the poem to an audience. Here is our performance.

A visit from Phunky Foods took place to share different fruits.


Working hard on our numbers

As part of their topic on trees and seasons both classes visited Manor Heath Park.

Hummingbirds and Kingfishers had a fantastic experience learning about birds of prey. The children had the chance to hold the beautiful creatures. They also watched the birds fly to different parts of the hall.

In Year 1 we have been looking at Percy the Park Keeper books and the story ‘After the storm’. Percy came in to see us. In the story a huge tree falls down and Percy helps make a tree house for the animals to live in. We asked Percy questions about the storm, the animals and what he does as a Park Keeper. We enjoyed meeting him and we will look out for his hut next time we go to the park!
