I expect all children to read for a minimum of 20 minutes every day. They can read a variety of books of their choice. They can read it independently, read to a family member or even be read to! Spending time with a book has boundless health benefits and can help children succeed in school. In other words:
reading is the key that can unlock success!
If you would like some great texts to read to your children, check out the Recommended Reading Lists that are uploaded below. I've categorised the fiction books into genres so you can find books similar to what you know you already enjoy. I have also included the book's Accelerated Reader level where possible.
If you're reading a book at home and are interested in its Accelerated Reader level, use the website www.arbookfind.co.uk to find out.
Many teachers at Kingfield love to read and are always willing to give out book recommendations! Don't be shy to ask an adult for a book they think you might like.
All homework is set online. Homework is set on a Friday. It needs to be submitted by the following Thursday. If it is not handed in by then, you may miss your break to complete it. If you regularly do not submit your homework, a letter will be sent home.
If for any reason you are unable to complete your homework one week, please ask a parent or carer to email or call the office to pass the message onto Mr Burt.
Every week, you will be introduced to a spelling rule or pattern or theme. These spellings will be given out on a Monday and will be tested on them on the following Monday. You will be given 5 words to learn and then be tested on 5 additional mystery words that follow the same rule, pattern or theme. You'll need to dedicate some time each week to practising your spellings in order to improve. You can view the autumn term's spelling list below.
We will continue to look at our four key values: Respect, Resilience, Empathy and Reflection.
Through Class Worship, assemblies and cross-curricular lessons, our values will be embedded into all aspects of our day-to-day learning, helping us to become the best that we can be.
Our Golden Rules
We take care
We take pride
