We shared the recipe book Gruffalo Crumble and enjoyed making Gruffalo tusks and Gruffalo Crumble. Emma cooked the crumble for us so we could have it for pudding at lunchtime - yummy!
In Science we are looking at different types of materials. We talked about man made and natural materials and created our own natural material faces.
7th January 2022
We had great fun playing games and learning new skills with James, our cricket coach.
This week we have enjoying the weather and preparing for Christmas.
We have been finding different ways to make our pictures move by cutting and making sliders. We also found a way to make pop up pictures too.
Wearing our bandanas for Children in Need.
Outdoor classroom - 4th November.
We looked for clues in the woods - animal homes, tracks and poo -to help us find out which animals live in our Forest School. Who did that poo? We dissected 'play-doh poo' to discover if was done by a carnivore, omnivore or herbivore.
Autumn Fun - pumpkin rolling
Following on from our activities with pumpkins we went out onto the field to roll them down the hill! We had 5 different items to roll down the hill - a pumpkin, a small and large ball, a basketball and a cricket ball. We watched them speed down the hill and measured which one went the furthest. It was great fun!
Autumn Fun - Andy Goldsworthy
Over the last two weeks we have been enjoying exploring the theme of Autumn.
We looked at the artist Andy Goldsworthy to inspire us to make our own 'nature sculptures' in the forest school area. We worked in small groups, shared our ideas together, collected the resources we would need and then created our sculptures. Each team had a chance to talk about what they had made to the rest of the class.
6th October - Cross Country Fun!
We were so proud of how the children gave their all for our cross country run. They cheered on all their friends and tried their best to run the 300m race as quickly as they could. Some even wanted to do it twice. Well done to everyone. Go Team Kingfisher!
24th September 2021
Another busy week! Learning about ordinal numbers and how to subitise. Getting ready for the Tiger in case he comes to tea: writing shopping lists, invitations and preparing the tiger food.
Welcome back everyone - it has been so much fun being with our friends in school again.
Outside Learning Day - Thursday 20th May 2021
Kingfisher and Wagtail joined the global movement - Outside Classroom Day. We made a commitment to spend at least half-a-day outside in celebration of outdoor play and learning. We have had THE BEST day and learnt lots of new skills. We used a range of materials and looked at various leaves and plants. Take a look at our pictures!
