SPRING TERM 1
Kingfishers Share Healthy Sandwich Recipes
πŸ₯ͺ 

This week master chefs in Kingfishers reveal their secrets of making a
healthy sandwich πŸ˜€ We looked at different Food Groups and carefully chose healthy sandwich fillings.

 Recipe for Friendship πŸ˜€

Master chefs in Kingfishers worked collaboratively to come up with a list of ingredients needed in the recipe for FRIENDSHIP. Children were very excited to use these ingredients while writing the instructions for the Friendship Recipe. Next week we will look into editing and polishing our instruction writing using our Toolkit Map.

 

Another highlight this week was our children practicing their skills with handling bat and ball in preparation for the upcoming taster session on CRICKET. Here’s is glimpse our learning journey this week.

 

Cheers for ChocolateπŸ˜‹

Kingfishers enjoyed their delicious, scrumptious handmade chocolate bars and chocolate lollipops this week. We did some great learning on the sweet studded topic. We looked at the journey of the chocolate bean to bar, discovered the  favourite chocolate flavour and chocolate melting experiment as part of our ongoing investigation on the properties of material. 
 

The chocolate workshop blends well with our new literacy topic on instruction writing. We encourage our children to familiarise themselves with the key vocabulary words such as equipment, ingredients and method involved in a recipe using the text map. Here’s a glimpse of our amazing learning journey this week.

WHAT'S COOKING KINGFISHERS? πŸ˜€

Kingfishers successfully finished the fairytale unit in English and composed their own fairytales featuring characters namely mermaids, gingerbread house, candy cane man, cotton candy girl and ninjabread man. Our children are very excited and looking forward to the chocolate making workshop next week.
This week, children made their own
Masterchef hats to inspire themselves to write their favourite recipes.πŸ‘©‍🍳


Next week, we will combine our learning about chocolate with observation and investigation skills in science and explore properties of solid materials further. 

 

Kingfishers continued learning through new and fun ways 
Children particularly enjoyed learning about Paul Cezanne’s- still life paintings and attempted to sketch and shade using a variety of tools including pencil and pastel colours. In literacy, children  continued to polish their writing skills in preparation for writing their own fairytales. We learnt about speech marks, sentence openers and fronted adverbials using actions-to make our writing interesting. In maths, children enjoyed sharing and grouping through practical activities.

Kingfishers have worked very hard and we are very happy to share our Class Collective Worship video, which is now uploaded on the school pagesπŸ˜€
