Welcome to Kingfishers Class


Kingfishers Curriculum Newsletters 20-21

Spring week in Kingfishers was lots of fun! We made hanging insect decorations, bird feeders, cherry blossom art, our own lavender playdough and replanted our own Kingfishers plant pot. Everyone really embraced spring and explored lots of different sensory activities.

In Kingfishers we have been looking at the Naughty Bus - everyone really explored following the journey of the Naughty Bus and we all enjoyed catching up to no good! We followed him on his journey from being opened as a gift, to finding himself lost in the pond and needing a shower. The Naughty Bus has gone home to London and we are ready to start our new story!

We had such a chocolate fun filled day in preparation for Easter this week. We explore making different marks using our hands in chocolate powder and melted chocolate. We then put our baking skills to the test to scrunch up some shredded wheat, mix melted chocolate and spoon them into cake cases to make some delicious Easter nests!

This week we have begun looking at our new topic focus of 'from seed to flower'. For our sensory story we are reading the book 'The tiny seed' by Eric Carle - we have explore watching the seeds blow in the wind and followed each seed through a sensory activity to see where the wind dropped them. We then looked and smelt some lovely flowers to see how the tiny seed blossomed. We can't wait to explore this more over then next few weeks.



Today we made our own paper - we first added shredded paper to water and mix them together. We then helped an adult use the blender to mix it all together. Once mixed we picked our colour and pressed all the water out. We can't wait to see our final pieces. 


Let's build a house! We have had so much exploring our sensory story lets build a house. We have explored the different materials used to build different houses. As you can see we all have lots of fun. A clear favourite is the water spray and the icy/snow made to make the igloo!

Children In Need

We had so much fun celebrating Children In Need in Kingfishers.  We even had two of our very own Pudsey bears in class with all the amazing dressing up.  We did all sorts of exciting activities but our favourite was making our own Pudsey yellow butter and then putting together bear sandwiches for our Teddy Bear Picnic.  They were so yummy!

Remembrance Day
Kingfishers took part in a range of activities for Remembrance Day.  We spoke about poppies and all learnt the Makaton sign for 'poppy'.  We made our very own poppy stamp pictures which look lovely!
