Turrets and Tiaras

How lovely it is to see so many smiling faces, gappy toothed grins, and shiny shoes as we welcome a full class of Kingfishers into our classroom for the beginning of another year. It won’t be long before they, and the children who have joined us from Robins become used to the routines and ways of our class. The children have had plenty of opportunities to talk about their experiences of the last few weeks and are certainly seeming to be enjoying being back together again. In English, we have been thinking about what sorts of things we can do to help make our classroom a happy place for everybody.

This week we have been thinking about ‘Turrets and Tiaras’ – our Castle themed topic. We have been making good use of the outdoor area in all this glorious sunshine. Inside, the children were thrilled to find the castle and the dressing up clothes ready for role play – and have been finding out about what the construction equipment can do. In Art, we looked at the ‘Castle and the Sun’ picture by the artist Paul Klee – we had a go at making our own Castle and Sun pictures.

Here is the class of Kingfishers 2021….(and this was before we did P.E.!)
