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!
Kingfishers have had a very busy week back after the Christmas holidays! We kicked off our Space topic with lots of art to create our planets display. We have been paint blowing, Using shaving foam and using collage materials! Year 2 were very enthusiastic after their first swimming session and Year 1 loved forest school. They all had a go at learning how to tie a clove hitch knot and got thoroughly muddy!
The children have all enjoyed using their own laptop and i-pad this week. They have been exploring some of the great apps we have on the i-pads and shown Mrs Jones a thing or two! Every child has had the opportunity to work on a laptop. They have all learnt to logon and then write a small piece of writing. They were delighted to discover how their font size and font could be changed! They all learnt how to save their work and shut down the laptop. We even managed a bit of Christmas art and singing-another busy week in Kingfishers!
