Welcome to Kingfishers’ Class!
It is hard to believe that we are already into term 6, the final one of the year! Term 5 saw the Year 6 children taking their Sats exams. They were all fantastic and approached them with an excellent attitude. They all enjoyed Mrs Bowling’s fabulous breakfast each day which kept them all well fuelled! The year 6s had an excellent time on their leavers trip to Thorpe Park (as well as all the adults!)
This term is a very busy one as you will see on the attached curriculum letter. There are a number of sporting events as well as a music cluster event which both Falcons and Kingfishers will be attending. The year 6s will be attending the Chippenham games as well as their Secondary school turnaround day/week. They also have their leaving party on Friday 7th July. Our topic for this term will be ‘Moving Mechanisms’. Children will be looking at a range of different toy mechanisms and will then design, build and evaluate their own toy.
The children in Falcons and Kingfishers classes have now returned to their own classes as learning groups have finished. Homework will once again be set by the class teacher and will go out on a Wednesday and be due back on a Monday. Spellings will be set weekly once again by the class teachers and times tables assessed regularly.
Thank you so much for your continued support with hearing your children read. All the adults in Kingfishers are hugely impressed with the effort children have been making in their reading. This term we are asking the children to read a total of 18 times for a certificate and 30 times for a badge. All year 5 reads must be with an adult. Year 6s must have at least one reading session with an adult each week, but still need to read at least 3 times in total. Please note down all reading in the yellow reading records. If the children read 3 times in a week (at home), they will receive a treat on Fridays.
In PE, the children will be coached by Mr Murphy learning different track and field skills. We will also be learning and applying cricket skills and doing activities that require multi-skills. We will be undertaking our ‘Golden Mile’ whereby we will aim to walk/run a mile each day.
We look forward to an excellent final term!
Thank you for your continued support.
