Welcome to Kingfisher Class 2017-2018
London's burning, London's burning.
Fetch the engines, fetch the engines,
Kingfisher Class are exploring the topic of 'fire'. We are thinking about Bonfire Night and fireworks - writing poetry and creating digital pictures. We will be visiting Woking Fire Station - remembering the importance of fire safety and thinking about people in our community who help us. We will be thinking about materials in science and their properties. We will be travelling back in time to the Great Fire of London and comparing our lives, houses, materials and food with the 1600s. We will also be exploring the causes of the Great Fire and how it changed the way people lived. There is an excellent website at the London Museum, which has many interesting facts for your children to read about.
We finish the term with our Christmas Performances and hope that you will be able to join us in celebrating this special time of year.
The Kingfisher adults are - Mrs Wells, Mrs Harward and Mrs Ehlers
PE days will be Tuesday and Friday.
Reading books can be changed daily.
Library books are changed on Thursdays.
Homework goes out on Thurdays, and can be returned any time in the week.
Kingfishers! Ask your parents if you can play the games on the BBC Bitesize website http://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/ks1/ or ICT Games http://www.ictgames.com/ as they are lots of fun and will help with literacy and numeracy skills.
We subscribe to ActiveLearn - https://www.activelearnprimary.co.uk/login and there are maths challenges, reading books, phonics games and grammar activities available that are linked to your child's current learning. We will be allocating new games and tasks as your child moves through the year. It is just being set up now, but keep watching out for added activities.
Value of the Month
November - Peace
December - Compassion
Remember at Kingfield:
We take pride
We take care.
To encourage children to become independent and effective learners we will be thinking about ways to show the 5Rs - resourcefulness, reflective thinking,reasoning, resilience and responsibility.
The 5 Rs are encouraged through every lesson and activity during the school day and are linked to characters in Winnie the Pooh to enable the children to relate to and understand the vocabulary.
