Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome to Kingfishers!
Kingfishers Class is Key Stage One with the Year 1/2 children, taught by Mrs Hunt, Mrs Cooke and Mrs Green.
Mrs Hunt teaches Kingfishers on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday mornings and Mrs Cooke teaches Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays and Fridays. Together, with Mrs Green (Teaching Assistant), we strive to provide the best possible learning and nurturing experiences for the children in our class.
We are really excited about our new topic, 'Castles, Kings and Queens'. We have a trip to Tamworth Castle booked for Wednesday 5th February where we will be learning about the history of Tamworth through drama, story telling and interactive workshops. Very exciting! Details to follow very soon.
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 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 will contact you on Dojo to let you know if they have moved onto the next list: If you don't receive a message then assume that your child did not get them all correct so will stay on that list. Please speak to Mrs Hunt if you have any further queries.

Please make sure that a full kit is kept in school at all times and that jewellery is removed and long hair is tied back. Thank you.
Children should have a water bottle in school each day please.
