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!
Owls had a really great first session at Forest School this week. They were learning basic orienteering skills using maps to find different things and figuring out the map key to decipher them. They all worked really well in small groups and it was a real pleasure watching them run around in the sunshine!
We have now finished our UK topographical maps and they look amazing!!!
Here are some photos of us making them.
Please do pop up and take a look at the finished results!
Robins hopped on a bus to Winchcombe last week. They explored the local shops to find out what goods they sell and bought some stamps for letters they had written. They visited the library for a story time and then the play park before catching the bus back to school.
The Eagles finished writing their 500 Words stories in class and are submitting them to the BBC R2 website over half term as their English homework. The children are very good at writing descriptions of settings - some fantastic atmospheres were created!
