Hello again Kingfishers,
For the rest of the week, I suggest you structure each day like this:
The most important thing this week is getting used to Teams! This is what you will need to do.
I know this seems like a lot of steps, but you will soon get the hang of it. You can do it! :)
Good morning Kingfishers!
I am sorry we cannot be together as normal, but hopefully you will be able to do some fantastic home learning over the next few weeks, and I hope to be able to video chat with you from time to time until we can all come back to school!
Your first job is to make sure you can log in to all our online resources, including:
If you cannot get on any of these, please get in touch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or on Microsoft Teams.
To keep you busy for the rest of this week:
Hope you are all feeling safe and happy. I look forward to hearing from you all soon.

The most important piece of homework for your child to complete is reading. Ideally this would happen every day, but if this is not achievable, please do it as often as possible! Reading daily will not only improve your child's reading skills, but will also help them to develop in all other subject areas. When you read with your child, please record it in their diary so we know when to change their books. We ask that a child read their book twice to an adult, before we change them.
The children also have spellings stuck in the back of their diary. Week 1 started on the 21st September. The children do have a few minutes each day to learn these at school, but any additional practice that can be done at home is fantastic.
Each term, the children will also have a selection of topic-based homework. It is not expected that they should do every one of these tasks, rather that they should choose a few that interest them. Please keep an eye on this page at the start of every term for their new topic homework.
As well as this, the children have access to a range of websites to help them learn from home, including Oxford Reading Buddy, Times Table Rockstars and Education City. The login details for each of these sites should be stuck in the front of your child's diary.
The children will participate in two PE sessions a week. We will endeavour to do PE outside as much as possible, so please ensure that your child has appropriate PE kit, taking into consideration the weather. Currently, children will need to attend school in their PE kits, on the days they have PE. The Kingfisher Class PE days are: Monday / Thursday.
It is essential that children have trainers for PE. If our lesson is based on the field, there is the potential that your child’s trainers may get muddy. Therefore, it may be sensible for them to have an additional pair of shoes which can be worn whilst inside the school building.
If you have any questions or concerns of any sort please do get in touch. My email is email@example.com.
