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. We will change our reading books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. 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 3 we will be helping Barry out by collecting fuel balls and this term we will earn fuel by being RESILIENT. Resilient learners keep going, even when the going gets tough. They start each lesson with a positive attitude and they give each task 100%. It is also important to remember that we are ready and respectful learners too!
Happy New Year! This term we our topic has a Geography and Science focus. Our topic "Wish you were here!" starts off by looking at the world's continents and oceans before we focus in on Australia. In Science we will be looking at animals and their habitats.
In Literacy we will be writing non-chronological reports about the animals we have been learning about and we will look at writing letters and postcards.
In Maths the term will start with a multiplication and division focus. We will learn what these two operations mean through a variety of practical activities.
We can't wait to get started!
