At Kingfisher we use Signalong as a part of a Total Communication Approach, we are constantly using core vocabulary with the children to support their language development and then through each of our topics we introduce new signs and language, which extends their vocabulary further. We also have two “Signs of the Week” which helps maintain and extend key knowledge and skills of everyday vocabulary.

Each half term we will be creating a short video showcasing and demonstrating signs relavent for the current term so that you can learn the signs and further this learning at home.

You can view this half terms signalong video below:


Swimming is scheduled for a Tuesday. However, this is on a rotation basis and the staff will communicate when your child will be taking part. Candle time takes place at the end of each school day – this is an opportunity to celebrate and reflect upon what the children have achieved or done during the day and to encourage them to relax before going home. Throughout the year the children will engage in a variety of activities planned around other focused days for example World Book Day etc
