We have had a real foodie week in Kingfishers! With the help of Mrs Davies and Mrs Denne, the children all made a delicious fairy cake with a safari twist! Additionally, they all tasted some unusual fruits and surprised themselves how much they liked passion fruit and mango! Miss Warner, our student teacher, has introduced all the children to yoga, again with a safari twist! All the children embraced the idea and found it relaxing but surprisingly hard!!
Kingfishers have returned from their half term break fired up with our new topic, On Safari! We have already had some great show and tell items and related experiences. This week we are busy creating a topical theme in our classroom. So far we have used shaving foam to create animal prints and looked at African art, inspired by Edward Tingtinga. We are yet to erect our new display, but have lots of artwork in the pipeline!
WKingfishers had a great Space day! They all looked amazing in their costumes and really got into the spirit of it! We had a great afternoon making and creating space rockets and even trying REAL astronaut food!
This week in Kingfishers we tested different materials to see which would be the most waterproof to make an umbrella. We predicted which materials we thought would be waterproof and which ones wouldn't. The children enjoyed pouring water on to the different materials and seeing what happened. The children were surprised that a tesco bag wasn't waterproof, until they realised it had holes in the bottom!
