Welcome to Kingfishers
With 19 wonderful children, a hamster called Brownie, Mrs Ireton, Mrs Glasby and Mr Smith all hard at work, Kingfishers is an exciting place to be. Together we enjoy creative writing, marvellous maths and lots of out-door learning. We also love gardening, problem solving and junk modelling - not to mention our time getting Brownie out and learning how to care for her! If there are any parents or visitors who would like to come in to class to help or accompany us to Forest School please pop your name on the Helper timetable - we would love to have you with us.
Week Beginning Monday 16th September 2019
English - We are reading 'The Smartest Giant in Town' and using Talk for Writing to re-tell it. We have already thought about punctuating sentences correctly, next we will begin character descriptions and then improving the story!
Maths - We began the year by looking at Place Value and sharing what we already know. Now we will use dienes, numicon and pictoral representations to make 2 digit numbers.
Topic - This term our topic will be "Big and Small" and on Monday 9th September we looked at each others miniature gardens. This week we think about what is big and what is small in the world around us.
The Kingfisher children settled in beautifully last week and some of them were given a role of class monitor. They do this within the school day and it will change each week, roles include Book Monitor, Milk Monitor and Fruit Monitor. We have also discussed snack time in class and children know they are to bring a piece of fruit into class each day to eat at playtime. We are looking forward to sharing treasures from home in Show and Tell, children understand that they can bring one thing into school they wish to show but it must not be bigger than their hand. It will go in to our Show Box and a child will be chosen each day to share their special item. PE kits are needed in school every Friday and go home at Half Term. Thank you.
This weeks jokes:
Why did the banana go to the doctor?
He looked a bit green!
How do oceans say hello to each other?
What does one wall say to another wall?
"I'll meet you at the corner"
