The Herons have enjoyed this topic and all the activities linked to it. They particularly enjoyed the story ‘Jelly had a Wobble’ and exploring and tasting jelly afterwards. We have started a new program of sharing stories in our Relevant Reading sessions; the children have enjoyed listening to action songs, sharing picture books, listening to sensory stories and listening to stories on the plasma screen. 

We have had lots of celebratory days this half term too, and the children have loved them all. We dressed up in our Pjs and pretended to be pirates for World Book Day, we embraced all things ‘red’ for Red Nose Day, we sported our PJs and brought in chocolate for our school Easter raffle, and we explored all things India for Languages Day.

It’s been a short, but very busy half term.

Follow along with this half term’s Signalong video!


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:


If your child has a school dinner, the school menus can be accessed by clicking here. For children who bring a packed lunch, please remember to provide healthy and balanced options. We are a Healthy School and will be focusing on healthy eating and how children can make healthy lifestyle choices.
