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 IMG 3145loved forest school. They all had a go at learning how to tie a clove hitch knot and got thoroughly muddy!IMG 3150

Kingfishers have been learning about the Hindu festival of lights, Diwali, which took place this week. They produced their own symmetrical Rangoli patterns, were fascinated to find out about the story of Rama and Sita and created some detailed Mehndi designs (which are traditionally used to decorate hands).

Kingfishers came back from their extended half term break full of energy and showing a really positive attitude to school. They were keen to write about what they had been doing during the holidays and enjoyed tackling maths activities learning about shapes. Wednesday's trip to Nature in Art was a real highlight of the week; they really impressed us with their independence making wire-work and wet felted butterflies in the morning and then loved exploring the sculpture garden and art gallery in the afternoon.
