This year the Kingfishers is a class of 26 and our teacher is Miss Hatton. Mrs Holmes will be our teaching assistant. Mrs Holmes will be with us from Monday to Thursday in the mornings. 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.

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 Tuesday.
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, group reading, paired 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 in the classroom if it needs to be changed! We will change our books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
We will continue to think about the 6Rs in our learning this year and as always in Term 1 our focus will be on being READY to learn. This year the children will collect dojo points each time they demonstrate the learning behaviours associated with that term's R. Watch this space for more news about our class dojo!
We kickstart this year with a Superheroes topic. The Kingfishers are officially superheroes in training! This topic will encompass Science, Art, D&T, Computing and Literacy. We will launch our topic with a Superhero day on Tuesday 4th September. We will be coming to school dressed as either our favourite superhero or a superhero of our own creation. What an exciting start to the year!
