Welcome to Kingfisher Class
Welcome to Kingfisher class
Welcome back after your Easter break, the weather promises to be much improved from now on.
Please can we ask that your child only has one key ring on their bag for identification purposes. With too many key rings on their bags the children find it hard to fit all their bags in their individual tray.
Mrs Piper, Mrs Glasby, Mrs Hiscoe and Mrs Thompson.
We will have some dates for outdoor learning on here soon.
Welcome back after Easter, we shall discuss what everyone did over the Easter holidays.
We will start to share everyone's homework, so if you could ensure it is in school by the end of the first week that would be really helpful.
We will introduce our new topic called
Honey I Shrunk the Kids
During our first week, we will recap and consolidate some grammar in Literacy in preparation for the upcoming SAT's (please don't worry your children over these, remember it is a broad picture of their ability that we look at).
In maths we shall be recapping division and multiplication and having a look at some data and reading graphs.
Over the next term we shall look at plants and some of the minibeasts we can find within our school site and up in Mumbery field. We will be setting up a school garden throughout the summer term and if you have any spare compost, pots or seeds, then we would gratefully receive them to get us started.
This half term our topic will be 'Honey I Shrunk the Kids'
Over the course of the term we will explore some of the local habitats and we may even get to experience them as an ant, or a snail. We will be using some digital software on our new iPads to create digital stories.
Please encourage your children to read their book with you every day. Check that they are using their phonic sounds accurately and not skipping over tricky words (see link below for accurate phonic sounds). Please discuss the text and check their understanding especially of inferred meanings of the text.
Mathletics log-ins will continue to work using their old log-in. Please feel free to log in and let your child have a play. This is an ongoing homework.
