What a great afternoon we have had creating our castles from all sorts of bits and bobs! The children perfected their DT skills by putting together some truly magnificent, imaginitive works of art. Many, many thanks for all the grown-ups who gave up their afternoon to support Kingfishers.
Kingfishers enjoyed the Big House Read during Book Week, where each class hosted a different house and children from all year groups got together to share some of their favourite books. It was lovely to see the older ones reading to the younger ones and everyone enjoying a real variety of books together.
We have been enthused already with our new topic, At the Seaside! We have been busy making clay fish, seaside mobiles and beautiful shimmery fish. Our display is now complete and created using all of the children's own work. Do pop in and have a look!
Kingfishers have been learning about the human skeleton this week. They have enjoyed creating skeletons using cotton ear buds as well as fruit and vegetables. They have impressed Mrs Jones with their cutting skills-we have some future chefs amongst us!
It has been frog mania at Forest School this week! Everywhere we stepped, frogs were jumping around our feet! I'm not sure who had more fun, the children or Nel trying to catch them!
As well as trying to study the joys of British wildlife, we have been learning about Florence Nightingale. The children have been very enthusiastic about this nursing legend (particurlaly Leo, who is likening her to his Mummy, who is learning to be a modern day Florence Nightingale!) We have been writing letters about the awful conditions she encountered in Scutari and we have been creating paper lanterns to signify the 'Lady of the Lamp'.
