Welcome to Kingfishers’ Class!
Welcome back. We can’t believe how quickly the year is going!
This term, we are starting our ‘Moving Toys’ topic. During this topic, we will be looking at how toys can move, before designing and making our own. Keep your eyes on this page to see how we get on.
In Kingfishers, we love PE. This year we have done so much PE, including Basketball and Tag Rugby. We have thoroughly enjoyed circuits last term. This term we will be doing dance with Mr Mitchell on Wednesday and athletics with Mr Murphy on a Thursday.
Homework will be set on a Wednesday and it will need to be handed back in the following Monday to the class 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. PE will be on Wednesday and Thursday. However, we will have extra sessions on occasion so 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 be cold, they should also bring in a warm training top and tracksuit bottoms that are ideally black, navy or grey in colour.
