Kingfishers have been learning about the differences between a continent, country and an island this week. We have been looking at the globe and talking about the Equator and how the proximity to the equator affects the climate. The children loved re-enacting the Earth moving around the sun and realised how this gives us night and day and affects the climate too. The children all packed a suitcase of clothes suitable for a hot climate and we all shared our holiday locations this Summer. We speculated what the weather might be like after locating each destination on our globe!
We have had a real foodie week in Kingfishers! With the help of Mrs Davies and Mrs Denne, the children all made a delicious fairy cake with a safari twist! Additionally, they all tasted some unusual fruits and surprised themselves how much they liked passion fruit and mango! Miss Warner, our student teacher, has introduced all the children to yoga, again with a safari twist! All the children embraced the idea and found it relaxing but surprisingly hard!!
Kingfishers have returned from their half term break fired up with our new topic, On Safari! We have already had some great show and tell items and related experiences. This week we are busy creating a topical theme in our classroom. So far we have used shaving foam to create animal prints and looked at African art, inspired by Edward Tingtinga. We are yet to erect our new display, but have lots of artwork in the pipeline!
WKingfishers had a great Space day! They all looked amazing in their costumes and really got into the spirit of it! We had a great afternoon making and creating space rockets and even trying REAL astronaut food!
