Welcome to Kingfishers’ Class!
This term, we will be starting our new topic, ‘Pop Art.’ The children will be studying the artists Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein, and emulating their artistic styles in artwork using a range of different media including: oil pastels, watercolour and digital printing. We hope to be able to take the children on a trip to London to see some of these works in real life. More information will follow.
Year 6 SATs 14.5.18-17.5.18. Please ensure that your child is in school for SATs, as they will not have another opportunity to sit the tests. We will be providing breakfasts for all the Year 6s on Monday to Thursday of that week in the hall. More information will follow about these arrangements. At the end of the week, we will be having a celebratory BBQ!
Learning Groups for English and Maths will continue. Homework will be set on a Wednesday and it will need to be handed back in the following Monday to the Learning Group teacher. 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 they are given out.
Children will have PE for two lessons a week – this term it’s Athletics and Real PE. However, we often have extra lessons 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 wear the appropriate kit for PE: black/navy shorts, white t-shirt and either trainers or daps. As the weather may still be cold, they should also bring in a warm training top and tracksuit bottoms that are ideally black, navy or grey in colour.
If you have any questions or queries regarding your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to pop in and see us.
