It has been frog mania at Forest School this week! Everywhere we stepped, frogs were jumping around our feet! I'm not sure who had more fun, the children or Nel trying to catch them!
As well as trying to study the joys of British wildlife, we have been learning about Florence Nightingale. The children have been very enthusiastic about this nursing legend (particurlaly Leo, who is likening her to his Mummy, who is learning to be a modern day Florence Nightingale!) We have been writing letters about the awful conditions she encountered in Scutari and we have been creating paper lanterns to signify the 'Lady of the Lamp'.
Today, Kingfishers were treated to a visit from our very own Dr. Steele! Hattie's mum very kindly paid us a visit to talk to us about her job as a Doctor. She spoke to us about bones and how we can study pictures of our bones with x-rays. The children guessed which part of our anatomy we could see on the x-ray images. We then looked at specimen bottles and blood vials. The children asked some super questions and were fascinated with the things Dr. Steele brought us in to show.
Kingfishers have been thinking about how we can categorise animals. They have learnt some very long words such as Invertebrates, Amphibians and reptiles. The children loved playing 'What am I?' and thought of some super questions to find out what they could be!
This week in Kingfishers, we have been using our i-pads to research our favourite wild animal. We are then going to be using the book creator app to write our own e book. We havealso been using our creative skills to make something special for someone special....watch this space!
