Golden time

 

  • We try to stick to the timetable, but sometimes we have special events planned and the timetable may change a little. You can find these events on the calendar.

Kingfishers read with Big RAT

The Kingfishers are encouraged to read at home every day.

Try to ask questions about the story or other text as well as what the author means by the words and phrases they use to describe characters and their feelings. The books can be changed by the children when they have read to a grown up and shared their ideas and thoughts about the book. We keep a record in class of the books they have read.

 

Kingfisher Big Write

The children will bring talk homework home usually on the Friday before the Big Write session the following Thursday. Try to spend a few minutes talking through the ideas your child could use in their Big Write but there is no need to make any notes for the writing session.

 

Kingfishers spell with the Word Wizard

They learn the spellings from the year 3 / 4 word list in school and try to include these in the BIG Write work.

The children will bring home spelling pattern words to learn for a test each week. The spellings will be set by the teacher they are working with for that term on a Friday and tested the next week on Friday.

 

Kingfisher Bookworms

Simply by reading regularly the children can gain points towards the Bookworm awards of Bronze, Silver and Gold. All they need to do is have 5 recorded reads in one week to receive a signature in their books, these then build up to the number required for each award. When they have enough points they will be given their certificate in our Celebration Assembly and also be able to place their own bookworm on the special Bookworm notice board.

 

Kingfisher Times Tables Challenge

The year 3 Kingfishers are trying to learn and practise their 3,4, 8 and 6 times tables at home to use regularly in school.

The year 4 Kingfishers will be set times tables by Mrs Leader but should aim to know all their times tables up to 12x12 by the time they begin year 5.

 

Kingfisher Rock Stars

The children can use their knowledge of the times tables they are learning to become 'Rock Stars'. They can do this by using the Rock Star times tables website or app on you mobile phone. They can then take their place on the Rock Star leader board in school.

What are the Kingfishers doing this year?

 

 

Autumn Term 1

 

During the first part of the Autumn term we will be investigating WATER. We will be using; Science investigations, English and Maths activities, Art and DT work, PE and Movement. We will also be thinking about one of our chosen charities for the year which is the RNLI. The children will have opportunities to do work with you at home which relates to our topic and the topic will culminate with our presentation for Harvest in school.

We have also planned an educational but fun visit to The Deep in Hull on Tuesday 13th November.

 

Autumn Term 2

 

This is an exciting term as we lead up to Christmas. Our topic for this term will be Traditional Christmases. In this term will also look at some of the popular Autumn traditions (including making toffee apples in Science) and also Remembrance. We will be hosting the Carol Service which has a theme appropriate to the Christmas traditions and stories we all know and love. The children will be learning songs for the Carol Service in Music and there will also be some Drama. The children will be writing instructions and non-chronological reports. Many of our guided reading materials will also use the themes for the topic this term. In maths and their homework they will continue to investigate calculation and different types of measurement. As Christmas approaches will be visiting Belton House ( Wednesday 5th December in school time) to find out more about Christmas in the past and enjoy some traditional parlour games as well as related Art and DT activities.

 

The main event for the Kingfishers in this term is the Carol Service on Tuesday 4th December at 6.30pm. We look forward to seeing you all there.

 

 

Spring Term 1

 

We begin our Spring term with Take One picture, which will last for two weeks. This is explored in all areas of the curriculum so be sure to ask what the children have been doing each day. The topic for the term will be Journeys. This will be explored during English sessions through the story books chosen for each year group and expanded in Big Write sessions which will concentrate on description and finish with story telling. In maths we will continue to learn times tables and use these in problem solving activities. The children will be working on measuring activities, in particular area before moving on to look at work about fractions. Our topic of Journeys will include activities using maps and atlases and investigating different habitats and the creatures which inhabit them. The children will also be encouraged to explore these through art activities using a range of medium as well as in music and DT work, where we hope to make some our own instruments. In RE we continue work trying to develop a better understanding of Hinduism and Islam and the effects on the natural world and peoples beliefs. We have a number of special events organised and hope to invite you to share an Evening of Arts with us on Tuesday 15th January.

Summer Term 2019

The Summer term started with a roar as we were introduced to our Saxon visitor Hrothgar. He told us about Saxon times and their way of life. Hrothgar also retold the story of Beowulf and we were all able to take part in his final funeral parade.

The theme of journeys will continue as we step back in time to find out more about the Saxons; their culture, way of life and places in which they settled. In Science we will be investigating light and learning about how to look after ourselves in the sunshine. We will use newspaper recounts, stories about myths and legends and non-chronological reports to record all the different work we are looking at this term.

In Maths we will learn more about statistics, measurement and fractions. As well as all these topics we will endeavour to learn our 2,3,4,5,6,8 and 10 times tables (and year 4 will know all of their times tables to 12) by the time we finish for the summer holiday. To end the journey we have taken through our topic this term, we intend to give a presentation which will include the opportunity for you to view all of the work we have done. This will be a celebration of everything about the Saxon era, created for everyone to enjoy.
