We have been looking at the history of space travel this week and talking about Neil Armstrong. The children were enthralled with the iconic words he spoke, 'Just one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind'. We discussed the meaning behind his words and how Neil Armstrong and his fellow astronauts helped shape space history.
The children have been really enjoying their sessions of Mindfulness, which are very kindly run by Mrs Whales. This week, they perfected their breathing and really thought about how we can relax our minds and bodies through the art of deep slow breathing. They then thought about how we can notice all the wonderful things our body can do. In conclusion, the children played a mirror game with their partner, which involved real concentration and observation.
Kingfishers have been really focussed this week on learning about internet safety. We have been talking about what our personal information is and how we must take extra care when using the internet.
Year 1 enjoyed a cold and frosty Forest School session with Robins. All the children had the opportunity to use a bow saw and some children chose to make a bird feeder to hang up at our site. Year 2 returned from another successful swimming session with smiley, happy faces eager to enjoy the movie night run by FOGS!
Kingfishers watched in amazement as we mixed oil-based spray paints with water-the effect was lovely! We then dipped our alien into the bucket and we all gasped at the results!
aWe have had a lovely week in Kingfishers getting stuck into our Space topic. Four mum's bravely volunteered to help during our paper mache afternoon, with spectacular results! We are half way through creating our own planets and they already look great! The children have made wonderful solar system pictures using oil pastels and used tin foil and paint to create an alien or astronaut! We are learning about the extraodinary size of our planets and how we get night and day. The children are all very inspired by this fascinating topic!
