Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome to Kingfishers!
Kingfishers is a Key Stage One class with Year 2 children, taught by Mrs Hunt and Mrs Cooke and assisted by Mrs. Ward. Mrs Hunt teaches on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Cooke teaches on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Together, we strive to provide the best possible learning and nurturing experiences for the children in our class in an encouraging, fun, supportive and inspiring way.
Our first topic of the new school year is 'Where We Live'. We have so many wonderful activities planned for the children!
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 Wednesday, when they will be changed. The children will bring home a colour banded book and also phonics books linked to their work in school.
Year Two will soon receive their log-in details for TT Rock Stars to help them practise their times tables. The children will have a times table test every Thursday.
Spelling tests will take place every Friday. 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. 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 Wednesdays. Please send your child into school in their PE kit on these days. 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 wish to provide your child with additional healthy snacks (no crisps, sweets, biscuits or nuts please) for afternoon breaktimes.
Free School Meals
Please remember that your child is entitled to a free school dinner up until the end of Key Stage 1.
