New for September 2019......
Welcome to Kingfisher!
We are a mixed Year 2&3 class and you will find us in the nearest of the 3 Key Stage 1 classrooms, previously known as Goldfinch.
Our teacher is Mrs Wellon and our teaching assistants are Mrs Jones, Mrs Earland, Mrs Sara Clifford and Mrs Knight.
We hope you had an enjoyable Christmas and wish you a very Happy New Year.
The first theme of the new year is 'Fantastic Beasts'.
We began our ‘Fantastic Beasts’ topic this term with an exciting treasure hunt around school, to discover clues about what we might be reading this term. The children gathered the clues together and were able to work out that our learning this term will centre on the text ‘How To Train Your Dragon’.
In writing, we will be taking inspiration from our class story in order to plan and write our own narratives. These will feature our own fantastic beast characters and exciting plots.
In Science, we will be approaching the theme of ‘Fantastic Beasts’ through the classification and grouping of different animals, including animal groups, types of teeth and food chains.
In Geography, the children will continue to develop their mapping skills and knowledge of physical features when designing and creating their beasts’ habitats.
Our Art this term will culminate in the creation of a class dragon. The children will each work through a process of designing and printing their own patterned dragon scales to produce the finished beast!
Our PE days this term are Wednesday and Friday. Thank you in advance for ensuring that the children have their PE kits in school on these days.
Swimming and Forest School for Kingfisher class will take place on a Wednesday morning on the following dates:
27.11.19 to 12.02.20 and
13.05.20 to 15.07.20
