P.E. in the Kingfishers:
Please make sure you remember to bring your P.E. kit to school on the days we have P.E. We will try to be outside for our lessons as much as possible this term so you will need to have your trainers. Bring your plimsolls too, just in case we are inside. Our P.E. days will be: Monday and Wednesday.
Homework in the Kingfishers:
We will have homework on Fridays to be handed in on the following Thursday. Our homework is linked to what we have been learning about during the week and could have a Maths, Literacy or Topic focus. We will also have a list of spellings to learn drawn from our ongoing spelling work. Regularly reading our school reading books is also an important, ongoing part of our homework.
Reading in the Kingfishers:
Reading takes many forms in the Kingfishers. To enable us to progress with our reading we will have opportunities to do whole class, guided reading and individual reading. It is important to read at home too! We need to take our reading books home and try to read aloud to someone as often as we can. It is up to us to remember to put our reading book into the tray if it needs to be changed!
Barry is set for a new adventure this year. His "Fishertron 3000" is ready and he is going to use it to explore the different continents that make up our world. He will need to us his readiness, resilience and resourcefulness skills as he embarks on this adventure and he will need to remember to be responisble, respectful and reflective too!.
In Term 5 we will be helping Barry out by collecting fuel balls and this term we will earn fuel by being RESPONSIBLE. Responsible learners make the most of their learning time and ensure that their resources are looked after so that they are always available when needed. It is also important to remember that we are ready, respectful, resilient and resourceful learners too!
Welcome to what is going to be a very busy term. We will begin by concluding our topic on castles before starting a Science based topic called "From Field to Fork."
In Literacy we will be writing recounts and completing a unit based on James and the Giant Peach. In Maths we will be spending the first few weeks revising place value and the four number operations before looking at 2D and 3D shapes.
