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!

At Forest School this week we were challenged to use nine sticks of similar lengths to create as many triangles as we could! The record was 14!

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 this space!

Kingfishers have had a very exciting week! We started the week off by visiting the Cotswold Safari Park. It was a lovely sunny day and the children enjoyed seeing the African animals we have spoken about in our topic. The children learnt that giraffes tongues can be purple and blue! 

Later in the week the children learnt more about traditional Kenyan culture. They played shisima, a traditional Kenyan game, which is similiar to noughts and crosses. The children started to develop strategies by blocking each others counters. The children looked at images of traditional Kenyan jewelry and made their own using bright repeating patterns.

Owls put their new found knowledge of angles to good use at Forest School this week. They used sticks to create numbers 0 - 10 and were asked to count the number of acute, obtuse and right angles. The children thought of some really creative ways to record their results-we had tally charts, painting mud on the grass and mud 'writing.' Some of the children were able to spot the parallel and perpendicular lines as well as reflex angles!

Some chidren were delighted to find so many mini-beasts and loved sharing their new 'friends' with the rest of the class!
