Welcome to Kingfishers’ Class!
Welcome back Kingfishers! We hope you have had an enjoyable and restful summer and that you are looking forward to an exciting term 1! This term, our topic will be ‘Earth Matters’ and we will be learning about principal mountains and volcanoes and their specific features. More details of this are on the attached curriculum letter. The letter will also detail all other areas of the curriculum we will be addressing and any dates for your diary.
Both Kingfishers and Falcons will be set homework on a Wednesday and it will need to be handed back in the following Monday. It is advisable to look at your child’s homework with them on Wednesday evening to ensure they are clear of the task/s involved. This way, if they need any further clarification, they have Thursday and Friday to speak to the class teacher who can help them. All homework tasks will be clearly explained when it is given out.
Children will have PE for two lessons a week. However, we often have extra sessions when coaches come in for one off sessions. For this reason we would like children to bring PE kit in on a Monday and take it home for washing on a Friday. Please could children where the appropriate kit for PE: black/navy shorts, white t-shirt and either trainers or daps. As the weather will soon becoming colder, they should also bring in a warm training top and tracksuit bottoms that are ideally black, navy or grey in colour.
For term one, the children will all be taught in class together. They will then be taught in year 5 and year 6 classes respectively from term 2 when learning groups will commence. We will inform you of more details regarding this nearer the time.
We look forward to a great first term! If you have any questions or queries regarding your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to pop in and see us.
