At Kingfisher we have recently celebrated 'Africa day' where the children spent the day dressed in colours from the African flags. It was lovely to see so many bright colours, some children even wore traditional African dress! The day started with a slide show and talk from Western Gazette photographer Len Copland, who recently visited Africa and took some amazing photos of animals in their natural habitat. This was followed by mask making, necklace making, food tasting and even some African dancing! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the African themed day.
Kingfisher Carol Concert
Thank you to everyone who came and supported our Christmas carol concert. All of the children sang beautifully and I'm sure you'll agree that it was a fantastic performance and all the children should be very proud of themselves.
On Tuesday 10th December we were very excited to have a helicopter land on the school field! Inside were two elves who had come to collect the children's letters for Father Christmas. It was very exciting!

Harold the Giraffe
We are thrilled to see Harold the Giraffe up in the stairwell. It is amazing to see how big giraffes are compared to ourselves! We can also feel proud that we all helped to make this amazing piece of artwork with Daryl.
Kingfisher Year 2 children and Preston Primary Year 2 children recently enjoyed an afternoon of Football activities. 6 different activities took place including matches and passing skills. The afternoon encouraged team play and sportsmanship and was well supported by parents from both schools.
Hoop Ball Tournament
The children from Year 1 joined forces with Year 1 children from Preston Primary recently for a Hoop Ball tournament. The children were split into mixed teams and enjoyed a fun and exciting afternoon playing in a number of matches, resulting in a Final. Thank you to parents from both schools for coming along and supporting the event.
Giant Giraffe Sculpture
At the start of the Summer Term, we had a visit from a fantastic artist called Darrell. Darrell works with lots of materials to create sculptures. He helped us make a beautiful giraffe for the school. It was quite tricky and very sticky but great fun to all work as a team. Each class had a session in which they contributed their part to the sculpture and the result was amazing.
Thank you very much for all of your efforts with the fabulous Easter Bonnets. The children all looked amazing!
Science Discovery Week
As part of Science Discovery week, we had a great day taking part in lots of different science experiments. We all split into 6 different groups and made our way around 6 amazing activities. We made dancing worms with Mrs January, it was great to see them come to life. With Mrs Francis, we made giant bubbles that were nearly as big as us! Mr Green let us use some microscopes to look at everyday things 1000x closer. It was great fun. We made Marshmallow towers with Mrs Haigh, lilies with Mrs Kerrigan and planted sunflowers with Mrs Denman. It was a fantastic day!
New Play Equipment
All of the children are thoroughly enjoying the new play equipment that was fitted during the February half term.
We were very lucky to have a visit from Stefan this term. He came to the school to talk to us about Willow and how we can use it to make a living structure. Through the sun, wind and rain, we worked as a team to create an amazing Willow Dome.
PTA School Disco
Thank you to the PTA for organising the recent school disco - the children really enjoyed it.
The children were lucky enough to have a very special visitor this afternoon (Friday 21st December) Father Christmas arrived in a police car!
The Adam Stansfield Foundation
The school have recently been donated a selection of sports equipment from The Adam Stansfield Foundation. Adam, who played for Yeovil Town FC very sadly passed away in August 2010 from Bowel Cancer. The Trust was set up in his memory to promote community participation in healthy recreation for the benefit of children. Mr Bourne, our Sports Coach put the equipment to good use this week and Mallard class were the first to try it out!
