Firstly, we would like to welcome you to Kingfisher class!
Our topics this year are:
Summer- Under the Sea
The children will be doing PE on a Monday and a Wednesday. Please see the PowerPoint for all the information you need for the start of term.
Many thanks for your ongoing help and support. We look forward to fantastic term!
The Kingfisher team.
This week, we have been busy designing our own colourful rainbow fish on the computers. Children worked hard selecting their colours and using different tools. Well done Kingfishers!
Next week is a busy week with interhouse cycling on Wednesday and interhouse cross country on Friday. So Kingfisher children will need to wear PE kit on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday next week. Please can children bring a bike or scooter on Wednesday and park them outside the classroom. All children will need to bring a helmet to take part safely.
This week we completed our 'Snail and the Whale' stories and also looked at 'The Rainbow Fish'. We created Rainbow Fish collages with a wash watercolour back ground. To continue along the theme of 'looking after others' we looked at the story of 'The Good Samaritan' and talked about what we would do if someone was hurt or sad.
We have had a great first week back. We have started our new topic 'Oceans and Seas'. We have an ice cream parlour in our role play area where the children are using correct money to pay for items. We have also learnt about the 7 continents and 5 seas. In English we are focussing on the fantastic book 'The Snail and the Whale'. If you have it at home, please include it in your bedtime reading.
Just as a reminder, our PE days are Thursday and Friday.
Please find the KS1 Home school link attached. Find out what your child is learning this term.
This week has been jamtastic. We have made (and eaten) jam tarts and then written instructions on how we made them. We also looked at the poem 'The Queen of Hearts' and the children came up with some great rhyming words.
If you haven't already, please sign up for a parents evening slot.
The children have come back to school with enthusiasm for the new term. We have started our new topic of castles and we already have lots of questions of things they want to find out.
Please see the attached home school link for any information you might need this term.
Thank you for the trip reply slips that have already been returned. Please get yours in as soon as possible if you haven't already. We are also still looking for volunteers to go with us in order for the trip to go ahead safely. Please let a member of staff know if you can come along.
We have had a brilliant term and the class have thoroughly enjoyed our space topic.
In the Spring term we shall be creating castles with a working drawbridge so need a few bits. Please can you collect and save any shoe boxes and wrapping paper tubes or kitchen roll tubes. Thank you.
Also, in the new term, Kingfisher shall be doing their spellings on a Wednesday not Thursday. They shall start from week 2.
Thank you for all of your on going support. We hope you have a great Christmas and a happy New Year.
I apologise for the typing error on the front of the programme. I have corrected it and have printed new programmes for tomorrow’s show. For those that bought a programme today, I have left a set of corrected programmes at the school office. If you would like a replacement, please pop to the office and pick one up.
Thank you for everyone’s contribution to Christingle. It was wonderful for the children to experience it again after COVID stopped us the last few years.
We have been experimenting with hand washing and it’s affect on germs. We all learnt how important it is to clean out hands properly so I hope they have continued it at home.
Next week is our Christmas performance and we hope to see you all there!
We shall also be sending out party invites on Monday for our Christmas party, so please look out for those in your child’s book bag. It will detail what you need to bring in for our party tea.
