How do we learn in Kingfishers?
 
Communication, Thinking and Problem Solving, Creative Learning
 
We all communicate and learn in different ways and in Kingfisher we have lots of fun trying out various learning styles to see which help us to grow and enjoy learning. We have lots of sensory activities to encourage conversation and develop vocabulary. These can include water try, messy play activities, using our senses to explore the world around us and developing our fine and gross motor skills. We use various resources to support our communication ranging from PECS, Makaton, Gestural Prompts and Objects of reference. We take part in Sensory Circuits during the week which help with Alertness, Organisation and Calmness. We explore indoor and outdoor learning settings and have opportunities to participate in adult led group work, 1:1 workstation tasks, child led learning and continuous provision learning through play.
