Finding Out About Castles

Kingfishers have really enjoyed reading the story of 'SIr Charlie Stinkysocks & the Really Big Adventure' this week and they have thought of lots of exciting adjectives to describe the story characters and setting. They were also delighted to receive a box of information books from the library all about castles and have thought of lots of questions they would like to find answers to, including: Why did knights live in castles? Why did they need horses? Why did they have battles? What were the toilets like? Where did they have a bath? Did little knights go to school?

Welcome to Kingfishers

rsz knights in our castleThe new Y1s have all begun to settle in very happily in Kingfishers this week and the new Y2s have been very welcoming and grown-up. They have done some lovely writing about their summer holidays, talked about how the Gretton Golden Rules help us to look after each other, challenged themselves to count to 100 & beyond and thoroughly enjoyed exploring their new Castles role play area. Please look at the attached Castles curriculum map for information about some of the things the Kingfishers will be learning about this term.
