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.
Welcome back to the start of a brand new year in Kingfisher Class. Our theme this term in ‘Incredible Me, Incredible You.
We have already begun this exciting topic by challenging ourselves to identify some of the staff in school from their childhood photographs! My how they have changed!
Our writing focus this term will be centred on creating biographies and autobiographies. Within this, the children will have to opportunity to reflect on milestones in their own lives, as well as interviewing others to find out about the lives of a different generation. This links to our History, exploring the lives of people in the sixties and drawing comparisons with our own lives.
In Science, we will be approaching the theme of ‘Incredible Me’ by identifying the bones which make up our skeleton and by learning about its purpose. We will also explore the functions of our muscles.
For our Art project, the children will be developing their resilience in learning as we create and reflect upon several drafts of a self-portrait. There will be a particular focus upon the correct proportion of their facial features. Watch this space for photographs of our amazing work!
Later in the theme, the children will be attempting to create a basic family tree to reflect on how incredible their families are.
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
