Peace is in our hands

Kingfisher class have learnt about Remembrance day and worked hard to create a display to remind us all about why we have Poppies. We also discussed why we weren’t able to have the parades this year due to COVID, asking lots of very relevant questions and having some good discussions.

The children took photos of their partners hands and edited them to make sure they were clear and changed into black and white. They then made a tissue paper Poppy to place on top of their own hand photo.

 

We created this as not only to remember those who died for us but also to help remind us that the future peace is in our hands

Time to explore

This months forest school gave us  time to explore being creative in nature.

The children were given an opportunity to get mucky, create art using what they can find in the woods, build dens, paint the storage shed with mud, create music using nature and generally have fun.

We also explored using blindfolds in pairs and small groups, guiding each other around the Forest School area. Last thing we used some locally found clay to create our own piece of art on a tree.

 

Lots of muddy children, it was lovely!

British Science Week

As part of British Science Week we had a strong focus on our Science topic of Wild and Wonderful Creatures.

This culminated with the children being stranded on a Desert Island and writing a message in a bottle letter to Mrs armitage.

Safer Internet Day

We had a lovely visit from Mr Lewis today. He taught us about using the internet safely, in celebration of ‘Safer Internet Day’. The children have been introduced to the following rules which we will talk about in class regularly. It would be great if parent/carers could support this to help keep your children safe at home. The children explored a site called beinternetaaesome.withgoogle.com and looked at the kind kingdom to support the development of being kind online.

There is lots parts to this site which can support you as parents along with parentzone.org.uk.

The children had an amazing time exploring this site with a very active and excited class. There were some very knowledgeable children who clearly have got appropriate restrictions set already.

Spring Term Topic

What is the Geography like where I live?'

This half terms topic is ‘What is the Geography like where I live?’ as part of this the children were asked to take some photographs or sketch their local geography.

We are now using these as inspiration for an art project, starting with a single line drawing of parts that our eye is naturally drawn to.

 

 

Kingfisher Celebration Assembly

Kingfisher Class celebrated their learning about the seasons and poetry by reciting poems by Robert Louis Stevenson, Walter De La Mare and William Blake.

The children arranged the performances themselves. They also had outfits to wear which were a refelction of the season in which their poem was based. As part of our shared learning of the seasons we looked at a painting by David Najar called Seasons Change.

 

We explored the playground and discovered items that we believed would help us to create 4 sections, one for each season. We will also explore the seasons as they change to continue to embed this learning.

Kingfisher – Christmas 2019

Making Christmas Decorations

Kingfisher have had an amazing time making homemade, biodegradable Christmas decorations.

We used our slow and careful cutting skills to make sure our split pin puppets were as neat as we could make them.   We used all our decorations on our class tree.
