Sports Day Fun
Kingfisher by the sea
Yesterday, we invited our families into FS1 for a fun day ‘by the sea’ . We paddled in the water, made flags and also built sandcastles. As a final reward we all enjoyed fish and chips for lunch followed by ice cream.
We have had great fun in nursery during science week. We dressed up as scientists and carried out lots of different investigations and experiments.

Tree Planting in the school grounds
Foundation Stage One children have been busy planting tree saplings to create a wood for the benefit of all children at Kingfisher Primary. Miss Geraghty applied to the Woodland Trust who donated 105 saplings to create a medium working wood along with an additional 30 saplings and 30 small bushes.
The long term project for the area of land at Kingfisher where the saplings are planted, is for the pupils to be able to engage in Forest School learning and experiences. They will benefit from Forest school as it allows them the freedom and challenge to explore and learn first hand what happens in the natural world. Children will develop problem solving skills which they can then apply to their indoor learning.

The children in FS1 and FS2 enjoyed their Christmas Concert ‘Whoops-a-daisy’ which they performed with great enthusiasm to families and friends.
Children in Need fun in Nursery
After reading our story ‘Leaf Man’, we decided to go for an Autumn walk to see if we could find some Autumn leaves to make our very own Leaf Man. The children had already collected lots of Autumn treasure with their families over the weekend, next week we will be using their Autumn treasure for lots of creative activities.
2017 – 2018
Easter craft activities with families.
Whilst planting apple trees in the nursery garden we found worms and slugs.
Our topic is ‘How does that building stay up’
This morning the children had found a fairy door and a tiny letter from a fairy. The fairy asked the children if they could build her a house to live in. Lucas chose to build her a house from our junk modelling materials. He said he made it really tall because he wanted to make it big enough for all the fairies to live in.
One day the children came into nursery to find a door and a little elf holding a letter.
Look at the mess that Elfie left this morning! He decorated a beautiful tree, but what a mess he made on the table. Merri Kismas? We think Elfie needs to practise his spellings!
Clever little Elfie has been very busy building himself a house overnight. Do you know that our nursery children are so good that Elfie’s house was still standing at the end of the day?
Oh my goodness look what that naughty elf has done! He’s knocked down the house!
This morning we came into nursery and our Elfie had done something amazing….. he had transformed our big cardboard house into santa’s house. We made some candy canes and we helped Elfie to decorate the house with them.
2016 – 2017
‘Are eggs alive?’ was the topic for this half term in nursery.
The children went on a walk and we looked for signs of spring in our outdoor areas. We discussed the flowers that has grown and how the trees had begun to grow new leaves.
Next we learned the story ‘The very hungry caterpillar’ and learned about how butterflies started off as eggs. We had our very own caterpillars in nursery and watched them grow from tiny caterpillars into huge caterpillars that changed into cocoons. We think they will change into butterflies after the school holiday. We made a big hungry caterpillar from balloons, paper and glue and we painted our own caterpillar pictures.
While our caterpillars were busy eating and growing, we got our very own chick eggs. We kept them nice and warm in the incubator until one morning, we came to school and five chicks had hatched!
We had four yellow chicks, these were boys and one brown girl chick. Because the chicks looked the same we couldn’t pick names for all of them so we named them Thing 1, Thing 2 and Thing 3, we named the brown hen chick Henrietta and the yellow boy with stripes, Chickaloo.
When our chicks were busy eating and growing bigger, we did some planting outside in our wild area and inside we planted our very own sunflowers and beans.
We have had a great time in nursery learning about life cycles and growing.
