Kingfisher class assembly.... Friday 2nd February 2018 ..... 9am!
Welcome to Kingfisher Class 2017-2018
Brrrrr.......winter is definitely here! This topic is all about the polar regions and survival in extreme conditions. Kingfisher class will be looking at polar animals and how they have adapted to survive in harsh conditions. We will be finding out about the explorers who travelled to the Poles and Everest. We will be thinking how science has helped modern explorers, through new materials that protect against freezing temperatures and asking questions about our planet and how we can help protect these unique environments.
We are also looking closely at the wonder of snowflakes and exploring cool colours through art and design technology.
If only it would snow...
The Kingfisher adults are - Mrs Wells, Mrs Wilson 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
January - Optimism
February - Trust
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.
