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 14th October 2019
What a wonderful week we had in Kingfishers last week. It was our school Harvest Festival, we walked around the village to look at buildings from the past and present, and we had a wonderful DT lesson creating a spaghetti structure! There are some lovely photos of our learning and we will be continuing it into this week.
English - Our English will be centred around a DT lesson making jam sandwiches! Once children have thought through their steps, they will be writing sets of instructions for others to follow. They will focus on using numbers, time connectives, conjunctions, headings and sub-headings.
Maths - We will be looking at + and - number sentences this week and strategies we could use to solve these. We will then look at finding 4 number sentences from 1 that is given.
Topic - We will continue to think about the houses we saw when we walked around Wargrave and making a timeline for the buildings we saw.
Class worship - Kingfishers will be leading collective worship this Friday (18th October) at 9.15am in the hall. The children would love to have as many parents and friends as possible to support and join in - all are welcome.
A big thank you to everyone who came and helped at the TLC day, donated or bought from our Harvest stall and accompanied us around Wargrave. We couldn't do it without you!
Readers - If you available any afternoon between Monday - Thursday to hear readers in class please give your name to the class rep's, we would love to have your help.
During the year the children will be given a role of class monitor - which they are especially proud of. They do this within the school day and it will change each week. Roles include Book Monitor, Milk Monitor and Fruit Monitor.
We enjoy snack time in class and children know they are to bring a piece of fruit into school each day to eat at playtime. In addition, school fruit is given out at the end of the day.
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.
