Mrs Lincoln welcomes you to Kingfishers class
You can email Mrs Lincoln on email@example.com
This half term Kingfishers will be embarking on their Passion Projects. The children will choose a topic they are interested in and undertake research to further their knowledge, learn new skills and then present their discoveries at the end in a manner of their choosing. Although the majority of the work will be done in school, please look out for additional information about how you can help and support them at home.
Reading – Our guided reading sessions are focusing on non-fiction books and texts. Please continue to hear your children read at home regularly. Even if they are a confident reader, I cannot stress how important regular practice of their skills using a book suitable for their reading ability is. It is equally important to share books with your child that are above their ability to develop vocabulary, imagination and a deeper understanding of the world around them.
Maths – We will be focusing on measure as well as calculation this half term. Our weekly “Tiny Tests”will continue, consisting of 5 mental arithmetic questions to apply their learning and understanding of number. Half an hour of Maths Whizz continues to be an expectation as weekly homework for all Kingfishers. In addition, please see our school website for times tables games and activities for you to do at home too.
RE – Kingfishers are exploring Hinduism with Mrs Goddard.
Physical Education – Please ensure PE kits are in school all week. Wednesdays this term brings Forest Schools. We have decided to split the class so the children have a richer experience. This means half of the class are doing Forest Schools this half term and the rest are following a Creative Curriculum that includes baking, ICT, PE and more. The children doing Forest Schools this half term have already been informed, so please ensure your children have a full change of clothes including warm layers, waterproof outer layers and wellies. The groups will swap over after half term. Year 3’s will be swimming every Wednesday afternoon and will join Forest Schools after half term.
I am also pleased to welcome to our class UEA PGCE student Miss Brown. She will be working with your children over this half term and after Easter under my guidance and I am sure she will be an asset to the team.
As always, should you have anything you wish to discuss, you can use your child’s yellow home/school book or you can email me: firstname.lastname@example.org.
