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!
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).
