Welcome to Kingfishers

Kingfishers Class has 28 children and are a wonderful mix of year one and two. My name is Mrs Ireton and I am the Class Teacher who has the pleasure of working alongside Mrs Hiscoe and Mrs Glasby to support the children as they learn and grow this year. Please feel free to drop in if you ever have a question or alternatively if you can offer some time to support the children or would like to go with them to Forest School - we'd love to hear from you!  

Learning Week commencing Monday 21st January 2019


In English we will continue looking at The Paper Bag Princess. We will focus on:

  • Talk for Writing

  • Speech and inverted commas "..."
  • Alternatives to 'said'    


In Maths we will be focusing on data and statistics. We will focus on:

  • Tally
  • Pictograms (using different scales)
  • Venn diagrams   


In Topic we are learning about 'Castles' and writing King and Queen facts.   


Forest School will be back on for year 1 children on Thursday 24th January, please send your children in with warm clothes and something waterproof. Also, if you are able to accompany the children please give your name in to any of the year 1 / 2 teachers, we would greatly appreciate the support.  


A big thank you for all the help and support with all our learning this week, we've had some new faces in to help us with Reading, English and Maths and thoroughly enjoyed it!

Kingfisher Knights and Queens!

Our Narnia Wardrobes - children made their own wardrobes on Friday taking us to all sorts of wonderful worlds!

Maths Parent Worskhop Presentation

We have had a lovely week looking at Narnia and acted out the beginning of the story!

Our Riddle writing this week was completed with a performance between the classes! Wonderful Riddle reading Kingfishers!

Our Harvest Festival celebration and produce sale.

Our Farm Shop - we've been "buying" and "selling" this week with real produce!

Year 1 had a very exciting trip to the wood in our first Forest school, Year 2's have been several times and will be going again on Monday.

The children loved watching all the scenery change in Alice in Wonderland.

We had our visit from Louis Taylor, teaching how to stay safe on the roads.



Thank you to everyone who came to our Class Welcome Meeting, it was very productive and we really value all of your comments and contributions. Unfortunately we did not get through all the 'helpful information' that we'd put together so please find the PPT attached to look through. Just ask if you have any questions. 


Class Mixing

As my Autumn Class Timetable shows, the children from year 1 & year 2 have starting mixing in afternoon sessions. If you have any questions about this, please ask.    



Kingfishers PE will be on Monday afternoon, please ensure that your children have their PE kits in school all the time and that all their clothing is clearly named.


Other equipment

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.


Show and Tell

Show and Tell will be "What's in the bag" again this year. Similarly to Owls class, children will be chosen at random and given the chance to share something they love. They will choose a bag, take it home, place something inside and bring it back the following Friday to discuss. On their day, they will be asked questions by their peers as they try to guess what is in the bag! It is a fun and fair twist to ‘show and tell’ and gives everyone a chance to join in.


Mathletics club

This club is held on a Thursday after school for 30 minutes and is proving very popular. Therefore we are having to restrict the numbers and ask that you sign your child up outside the classroom doors. A new signup sheet will be there every week for that weeks club. We have allocated 5 spaces per class to make it as fair as possible. If your child would like to attend the club it is important that they are able to logon to the mathletics website independently. Unfortunately there just isn't enough time to support 15 children logging on in such a short session. If they are unable to do this yet and you would still like them to come, sign up and please come along with them for the beginning of the session until they are confident at logging on themselves. If you have any queries please speak to Mrs Ireton on the door.


Readers Workshop

Reading takes place every afternoon. If you are able and would like to help at any time please speak to Mrs Ireton, Mrs Hiscoe or Mrs Glasby.


Thank you.
