Welcome to Kingfisher Class 2017-2018
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No! It's Kingfisher Class! Are you ready to be a Superhero?
Welcome to our new Kingfishers! Are you refreshed and ready for a busy year?
This half term, we will be Superheroes! We will be thinking about what makes a person 'super' and how we keep our minds and bodies fit and healthy. We will be designing our own super accessories and considering real people who demonstrate 'superhero' qualities - famous people from history, modern inventors and athletes....what makes them 'super'? Do you have a superhero in your family? You don't have to be famous to be amazing....let's explore!
Thank you for coming to the Year 2 Curriculum Meeting. It was great to see so many of you. As requested, there is a copy of the information from the meeting below.
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
September - Respect
October - Equality
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.
