Caterpillars in class!
Today we received a letter and package from the Hungry Caterpillar asking us to look after his caterpillar friends. In class we will be looking after the caterpillars and observing the life cycle process. When the caterpillars have grown and formed into strong butterflies we will be releasing them in our woodlands.
Keep a watch out for news and updates!
We had a mindfulness afternoon in Kingfisher class today. We planted sunflowers and took part in yoga in the hall.
Let's hope for a great term filled with lots of sunshine! The Kingfisher team are very excited to be back and we are really looking forward all the fun things we have planned this term.
Check out our Topic Map for this term under the subheading 'useful documents and letters'. Our topic this term is minibeasts and we will be utilising our outdoor areas for a range of different activities and learning experiences. The school will be opening up the pool, hall, sensory rooms and soft play for the children to use. To let you know the dates of when we will have access to these facilities, we will be sending out a timetable in school diaries.

Books for this term
Welcome back to Blackmarston! I hope you all had a fantastic summer and are as eager to return to school as we all are. Everyone in the Kingfisher team is excited to be returning to school and we are happy to be back supporting the children.
This term our whole school topic is ‘Together’. We will be looking at a range of books that will support your child’s development in understanding their emotions and the importance of working together. We will be reading key texts such as ‘The Colour Monster Goes to School’ to help the children with their transition into a new class and ‘The invisible String’ to show the children how we are all connected to our loved ones no matter where we are.
Our Thinking and Problem Solving focuses this half term are: numbers, place value, position, direction and movement and time.
We will be using a range of counting songs, exciting activities and engaging lessons to develop your child’s knowledge of numbers. We will also be using construction and messy play to explore position and movement and stories to develop the children’s understanding of time.
We have lots of exciting art and D.T projects over the next term where the children will have lots of opportunities to be creative. We hope to work together as a team so we can create new resources for our outside courtyard. We will also be exploring different colours and looking at how they represent the different emotions we feel.
