Growing In Faith and Learning
Until we hear what our PM decides concerning schools reopening, the children's learning will be posted on this webpage. Below there is an outline of what we want them to do each day along with any resources that they'll need. We would love to see what they've done at home, so please post the children's work onto their portfolios on Class Dojo and we'll send our feedback as soon as possible.
If you need to contact us to provide more information, we'd be happy to help.

Welcome to Kingfishers!
Kingfishers Class is Key Stage One with the Year 1/2 children, taught by Mrs Hunt, Mrs Cooke, Mrs Pallett and Mrs Jones. Mrs Hunt teaches Kingfishers on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Cooke teaches Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Together, we strive to provide the best possible learning and nurturing experiences for the children in our class.
This half term, our new topic is 'ANIMALS'. We have so many wonderful activities planned for you!
Please encourage your child to read often and discuss, predict and question your child's understanding of the text. Please ensure you have signed your child's reading diary and remind them to bring reading books and diaries to school every Monday and Friday, when they will be changed. If you would like to have a couple of books during the week and weekend please drop us a line. It is vital that children experience discussion around fiction and non fiction, so we have provided every child with a prompt book mark to support this.
Year One should have received their Y1 child's log in details for Numbots, to help them practise their maths.
Year Two will have a times table test every Friday. You should have received your Y2 child's log in details for Times Tables Rockstars to help them to practise.
Spelling tests will take place every Monday. A list of the spellings your child needs to learn has already been sent home. As it's an individual programme, children will move onto the next list in their own time, when they have got the spellings all correct. We now have new spelling books that the children will bring home with them each week. If they have got all of their spellings correct, we will move them on to the next set and we'll indicate this in their spelling book. If they have any wrong, please continue to learn that set and we'll retest them the following week.
PE for this term will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Please send your child into school in their outdoor PE kit on this day. Also please make sure that jewellery is removed and long hair is tied back. Thank you.
Children should have a water bottle in school each day please.
Free fruit is available for morning break. You may provide your child with additional healthy snacks (no crisps, sweets, biscuits or nuts please).
Free School Meals
Please remember that your child is entitled to a free school dinner up until the end of Key Stage 1.
Please contact us using these email addresses as we will always endeavour to meet with you if you have any worries or concerns:
