Hello and welcome to the Kingfishers! This year our teacher is Mrs Johnson and Mrs Roberts is our teaching assistant.
We have an exciting, fun packed year ahead of us as we continue on our EPIC learning journey. To keep up to date you can follow us on Twitter. Send a follow request to @Kingfisherskett to see what we are up to!
This year our P.E. days are Monday and Thursday. Please make sure you remember to bring your P.E. kit to school on these days. When the weather is nice we will try to be outside for our lessons as much as possible so you will need to have your trainers. Bring your plimsolls too, just in case we are inside.
Reading takes many forms in the Kingfishers. To enable us to progress with our reading we will have opportunities to do whole class, group, paired and individual reading activities across the curriculum. The Kingfishers will also continue to bring books home to enjoy and discuss. Please listen to your Kingfisher read as often as possible. Books will be changed on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
Don't forget to put them in the reading box so we know they need changing!
Ready, Respectful, Resilient, Resourceful, Responsible
Each term we will focus on one of our Rs. In term 1, we be thinking about what it means to be 'ready to learn'.
Our big question in Term 1 is'Does eating 5 a day make for a healthy life?'
This will be a cross-curricula theme covering Science, D.T. and Art. In Science we will be investigating the basic needs of animals and humans for survival and then go on to research and discuss what is meant by a 'balanced diet'. Alongside this, we will look at how food is represented through art. We will also be reading and following recipes and learning how to prepare food safely using a variety of techniques and equipment. To showcase their learning, the Kingfishers will devise their own 'healthy' lunchbox or meal plan! Following on from this, we will discuss the wider needs for a healthy life, thinking about exercise and hygiene.
In English, we will start the term by looking at the book 'Changes' by Anthony Browne. We will be thinking about stories set in familiar places and write our own. To link with our work on healthy living, we will investigate how instructions are written and go on to write an information leaflet about how to keep healthy!
In Maths, we will be looking at number and place value to 100 and move on to addition and subtraction.
What a busy term it promises to be!
