Kingfishers

Welcome to Kingfishers’ home page.  Mrs James is the teacher for Kingfishers (Years 4 and 5) and Mrs Southwell is the teaching assistant. 

Our topic this term is ‘Stop Plastic Pollution'.  If your child has any suitable, relevant artefacts or books that would complement this topic, they are welcome to bring them into school to share with the rest of the class.

As part of this topic, the children will explore how our use of plastic can have an impact on our oceans.

Homework:

Homework is handed out on Fridays.  Timetables homework is due back on Wednesdays which is the test day.  Encourage your child also to continue practising their times tables using the TT Rock Stars website.  Spellings are due back on Fridays which is the test day.  Please encourage your child to bring their guided reading record books into school daily and they should read between 4-5 times a week at home.

This term Kingfishers will be participating in outdoor learning with the Mini Marines who will motivate them through team building and assault course activities (on Thursdays).  Please ensure your child has suitable clothing in school to carry out these activities, especially with the cold weather we are experiencing at present.  They should have in school:  an old pair of jogging bottoms, a tee-shirt and an old pair of trainers with some warm socks.
