Kingfishers

Welcome

Welcome to our class page. Here you will find details of what we are doing, news and our homework.

The new Kingfishers settled in really well into their new classroom with Mrs Bishopp and Miss Wood after their long summer break.

Well done everyone!

READING

The Library is now up and running! So the children have all been to the library and chosen a reading book to take home. Children will visit once a week with an adult to change their books. Unfortunately they cannot take a new one out until they have returned a book so please keep them safe in their book bags.

Please try and read with your child daily and write a comment in their reading record. These get checked once a week in guided reading so please don't write urgent messages in them. When they have finished reading their book, re-reading will develop their fluency and asking questions about the story will develop their understanding of the text. They could also write or draw a picture about what has happened or the characters.

Growth Mindset

In the first week of term we learnt how to change our mindset and how we think about our learning.

Moving on from the important basis of "Have a go, your brain will grow!" we have learnt some new words and practised these learning habits.

  • Perseverance - Keep trying and try a different way.
  • Discipline - Stay focused and follow the rules.
  • Imagination - Think up your own ideas and pretend.
  • Curiosity - Ask questions and look closely.
  • Collaboration - Share ideas and listen to each other.


PE

Our PE days are Monday and Thursday. Please make sure your child has full PE kit in school at all times.

We aim for one indoor and one outdoor session a week in all seasons, so please make sure children have suitable clothing including a black sweatshirt or hoody and black tracksuit trousers. We recommend trainers rather than plimsoles as they are more durable and stay in place better during sports.

This term our learning journey is: Can I be a knight?

News - beginning of term to 5th October 2018

In English, we have written the story of 'The Paper bag Princess' using all the skills we have learnt so far this term, including using connectives and 'wow' words (adjectives) to make our writing more interesting.

This week we wrote instructions for making muffins using bossy (or imperative) verbs.

There has been some fantastic writing by the children.

Well done Kingfishers!

In Maths, we have been learning to order and compare numbers to 10 using the language of greater than, less than and equal to and thinking about how to explain why they know.

In other subjects, we have sketched knights and designed shields. When we learnt about Harvest we cooked beetroot and chocolate muffins and practised songs for the Harvest Festival.

We hope you enjoyed the food and the singing if you came. We are very proud of the children.
