Kingfisher Class Year 3/4

Welcome to the Kingfisher Class

Summer Term 1 Overview

As part of our studies this term, the children have been learning about how machines have changed society. In D&T, they designed moving machines using axles and wheels. We then tested the machines using a ramp and judged them on efficiency, teamwork, design, environmental impact and aesthetics. The children had lots of fun and were super successful at the task.

The children had lots of fun making mummies as part of our studies of the Ancient Egyptians.

Routines and Reminders


Home/School Diary:

This book must be brought to and from school each day. It is vital for communication and will be used to record reading books, reading sessions, homework, activities and messages.  If there is a message from home, please ask your child to bring it to the attention of the intended teacher/ TA.



It is expected that your child has an appropriate reading book with them for daily reading sessions.  This book can be from home or school.  Books can be changed whenever necessary and we encourage your child to be independent in changing and choosing books from the class or school library. However, guidance will be given when required. Children will read in guided sessions and may be heard individually too.  Children should be reading nightly.  Please sign your child's diary upon completion of any reading of their reading book. This helps us to keep track of any reading outside of school and the children will receive points towards their bookworm certificates.



A homework grid is attached below.  Children can choose four activities to complete this half term.  Please bring the work into school so that we can share it and celebrate your child's achievement with them 



Currently the children are allowed to attend school in their PE kit on the days that PE is taught - Monday is our PE day this half term, with swimming being our second PE slot on a Thursday. (Some competitions will be held on Fridays: if your child is involved they will be notified).  If your child wears earrings please teach them to remove and replace theses themselves. 



Pupils may have a refillable, named water bottle for the classroom so that they can have access to drinking water throughout the day.  Please note that this is for water only and not juice.


Please use the school diary for messages or email me at the address below.  Thank you for your continued support.


Kind regards
