Hi Kingfisher Class!
I hope you have had a safe and restful Summer break.
Over the course of the Autumn term we will be very busying studying and I am hoping that this academic year will be smooth and have a sense of normality. Fingers crossed!
PE for the first half term will be on a Wednesday morning so please make sure you have your kit in school ready for this. Please make sure you have some trainers in your PE bag ready in case we venture outside for our lessons. For girls with long hair please make sure it is tied back. Anyone with pierced ears will need to remove earrings before PE, so either make sure your child can do this themselves or remove for the day of PE.
In English we will initially be covering a book called the Secret Sky Garden which talks about the importance of community and community areas, as well as friendship. We then move onto narrative with 'The Day the Crayons Quit' and next non-fiction covering the Romans in Britain. We will end the half term practising our persuasive writing.
In maths we will be studying different types of measures including mass and time. We will work on 2d and 3d shape and of course look at the number system working up to 1000!
Our wider curriculum will be covered through learning about electricity in science, maps and globes in geography, colour and shape in art, moving pictures in design and technology, family and friends in PSHE, safe and effective searching in computing, God in RE, games in PE and singing in music. Wow!
Reading books will be coming home again with a reading record for you to complete with your child when reading with them. Please try to do this as often as you can to support their reading skills of decoding and comprehension.
If you have any queries please speak to myself in the first instance or contact the office staff.
I am very much looking forward to meeting you all and continuing our learning journey!
