This year the Kingfishers is a class of 26 and our teacher is Miss Hatton. Mrs Holmes and Miss Calton will be our teaching assistants. Mrs Holmes will be with us from Monday to Thursday in the mornings and Miss Calton will work in our class every afternoon and on Friday mornings too. 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!
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 4 our focus will be on being RESOURCEFUL. Remembering to be READY for learning, RESPECTFUL and RESILIENT is also important too. Each time we demonstrate the learning behaviours associated with this term's R and our previous Rs we have the chance to earn a dojo point. We can trade our individual dojo points in the Dojo Shop for exciting goodies every Wednesday playtime. We are continuing to work on earning our next 100 Barry points for a class treat. Fingers crossed we do it this term!
This term our topic is the second half of our ICE and FIRE topic so we will be focusing on FIRE! This topic is primarily history based and we will be focusing on The Great Fire of London. In Literacy our work will also be FIRE inspired as we will be looking at dragon stories. Our first book The Dragon Machine will provide the stimulus for different genres of writing. In Maths we will be concluding our work on division before starting a block on fractions. Remember to keep practising your 2, 5 and 10 times tables Kingfishers!
