Welcome to Kingfishers’ Class!
This term, we will be starting our new topic, ‘Groovy Greeks.’ The children will be studying Alexander The Great, the origins of the Olympic Games and learning about the Greek Gods and their associated legends. 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 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 Squash and Real PE. 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.
