Hello and welcome to the Kingfishers!
Mrs Johnson is our class teacher and Mrs Holmes is our teaching assistant. This year we also have Mrs Thorpe, a student teacher, working with us.
We have an exciting, fun packed year ahead of us as we continue on our EPIC learning journey!
This term P.E. is on Monday. Please come to school wearing your P.E. kit on this day. Remember to make sure that you have warm clothing as lessons will take place outside whenever possible.
Reading takes many forms in the Kingfishers. To enable us to progress with our reading we will have opportunities to take part in 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 and sign your child's reading record. Every time they read at home it will count toward their reading certificates and badges! More information on when books will be changed will follow shortly.
Ready, Respectful, Resilient, Resourceful, Responsible, Reflective
Each term we will focus on one of our Rs.
What an exciting and busy term we have ahead of us!
As part of our EPIC learning, we will focus on how to be 'Ready' to learn.
In Science this term, we are going to be investigating what it means to have a healthy lifestyle. We will be learning about the importance of a healthy diet, exercise and hygiene.
In English, we will be learning about and reading lots of fables! We will investigate how they are written and use this to plan and write our own. We will continue to develop our understanding of what a sentence is and focus on using accurate punctuation and including lots of descriptive detail to appeal to our audience.
In Maths, we will continue using our Power Maths scheme. We will be learning about number and place value to 100 before moving on to addition and subtraction.
This term in Art we will be making our own sketch books to use throughout the year! Once these are made, we will be investigating a variety of media and then, using the skills and knowledge we have learnt, draw different cartoon characters.
In IT we will be learning about Coding. We will start by thinking about what an algorithm is before moving on to using Beebots to learn how to create and debug a simple progam.
Spelling lists will come home on a Friday and be tested the following Thursday. Please encourage your Kingfisher to practise these regularly throughout the week.
Reading books will be sent home regularly.
