Welcome to Kingfishers’ Class!
This term, our topic will be ‘Innovative Inventions.’ We will be learning about key inventors and inventions through the ages. We will also be looking at the impact these have had on modern life. 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.
Learning Groups for English and Maths will be starting this term. As detailed in a letter home, Mrs Thomson will be teaching the Year 5s from Kingfishers and Falcons on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. The Year 6s will be split into 2 groups, taught by Mrs Joy and Ms Hull. Homework will continue to 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. 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.
If you have any questions or queries regarding your child’s learning, please do not hesitate to pop in and see us.
