Kingfishers

Welcome to Kingfishers

with Mrs Jefferson and Mrs Stiles.

 

In Kingfishers we believe that if something's worth doing, its worth doing well. We always try our best so that together we can achieve.

 

We are really lucky to have Mrs Brown and Mrs Wilks with us enabling small focused work and support. We will be around on the playground in the mornings and at 3pm, please come and speak to me and ask about any queries you may have.

Summer Term...

 

Welcome back to you all, this is the summer term…. Although you wouldn’t know it from the weather! We hope you all had a restful Easter break. I am sure we have all returned with our batteries recharged for the exciting summer term.

 

Our topic this term will see us become ‘Water Wizards’ as we undertake research of both local waters and rivers from around the world. Following this we will become ‘Outlaws’, more will follow concerning this nearer the time.

 

We have been very lucky to be selected to work with Worcester Wildlife Trust and explore the local river environment. During our week as ‘River Rangers’ we will immerse ourselves… but not literally!...learning about what lives in the river Stour, and how humans impact the river, positively we hope.

  • Thurday afternoons will be P.E. with myself and Mr McDonnell, this term will be tag rugby. P.E. kits can be left in school, everything must be labelled.

 

Homework

I, Mrs Stiles will provide topic homework for each term with a return date. This will be focused around the class learning, consolidating teaching and demonstrating independence, children should spend about 30 minutes each week on it and please say if your child is unsure, we are here to help.

 

Guided Reading

Following out space theme day topic we will be reading a fictional story book written by Steven and Lucy Hawking called George’s Secret Key to the Universe. We will also be using a variety of non-fiction books to direct our learning and develop our comprehension skills. 

 

Talk Time

Back due to popular demand is Friday Talk Time. Children will be able to sign up and present to the class about anything they are interested in and enjoy. It can be about a special holiday or hobby, anything! We welcome pictures etc. and if they want to present a powerpoint presentation using the interactive whiteboard they can.
