It's all change in the Kingfishers this year - how exciting! We are a class of 30 children and our teacher this year is Miss Hatton. Mrs Barker will be our teaching assistant. There are lots of exciting things planned for this year and you can find out about them by looking at our class page or even better by following us on Twitter. Send a follow request to @Kingfisherskett to keep up to date with things in the classroom as they happen!
This year P.E. will be on Mondays and Wednesdays so please make sure you have your P.E. kits in school on these days. We will try to be outside for P.E. as much as possible this term so you will need to have your trainers. Bring your plimsolls too, just in case we are inside.
Homework will be given out on Fridays and will be due in the following Thursday. It will be linked to work done in class during the week or ongoing topic work. There will also be a list of spellings to practise for a test on Fridays.
EPIC learning - Barry is back from his journey around the EPIC solar system and we are excited to find out what other adventures he has planned. We will help him to prepare for these through our work on the 6 Rs - being ready, resilient, responsible, resourceful, reflective and respectful.
An EPIC update
The Kingfishers were very resourceful learners last term and they helped the rest of the children in school to earn enough rocket fuel to buy the final piece of the "Fishertron 3000"! Our rocket fuel this term will help Barry to set off on his travels again next year in his shiny new vehicle. I wonder if we might be able to earn enough fuel for one last treat day too?
This term our rocket fuel will be earnt by remembering to be REFLECTIVE learners. Reflective learners act on advice they are given to improve their work. They also edit and make changes to their own work using the success criteria to help them.. EPIC learners are also READY, RESILIENT, RESPECTFUL, RESPONSIBLE and RESOURCEFUL too!
Term 6 -
This term our topic work will have a Science focus. We will look at healthy eating and to finish this topic off we will be planning and designing our own healthy snack in D&T.
This term in Maths we will be revising our 4 number operations (remember to keep practising your 2, 5, and 10 times tables at home) and continuing with learning to tell the time. In Literacy we will be finishing the year with a unit of work based on James and the Giant Peach. We should be able to do lots of different types of writing.
The Kingfishers will also be taking part in Sports Day and we have our end of term trip to Egleton to look forward to. What a busy final term it is shaping up to be!
