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!
Kingfishers had an exciting morning on Friday when they were visited by some firefighters and their fire engine! The children learned about what firefighters do and got a tour of their fire engine, including the chance to get inside and try on some of their firefighting gear!
Kingfishers have let their creative juices flow this week! They have designed and made their own fire engines and have come up with some amazing creations. You couldn't hear a pin drop in the classroom as they beavered away!
