Year 1/2 Kingfishers Trip to Scarborough

 

The Kingfishers had an amazing time in Scarborough. The weather was glorious and the sun shone all day. The pirate ship ride was very exciting and we felt like real pirates; we also felt very important on the donkeys. We loved our ice-creams even if we did eat a bit of sand with them too!

Wildlife in the Playground

 

Year 1/2 Kingfishers discovered a little visitor munching on our flowers in the playground so they decided to give him a new home in the Wildlife and Sensory Garden. It was very exciting to see the snail come out of its shell and investigate its new surroundings #incrediblenature
