KINGFISHER CLASS

Welcome to Kingfisher Class!

 

 

 

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. I am in no doubt 2018-19 will be filled with excitement, adventure, challenge and celebration, and look forward to getting to know the parents and carers of our lovely class.  

 

Learning Week commencing: Monday 17th September 2018

 

In English we will begin looking closely at our sentence writing. We will focus on:

  • our best handwriting - what that should look like
  • word types - nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs
  • phonics phase 3 - 5 or beginners grammar

 

In Maths we will be focusing on place value:

  • Recognising numbers in different formats eg Numicon
  • Partitioning numbers - tens and ones
  • Number bond club - including subtraction challenge

 

In ICT we will be thinking about e-safety, turning on and logging in.

 

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

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 will begin their class swapping this week, again, any questions - please ask.    

 

PE

Kingfishers PE will be on Wednesday afternoons, 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.
