Dear parents / carers
Welcome to the new academic year in the Kingfisher class. By now, you should have received a letter highlighting our themes, topics and routines for the term, however it is attached below so that it is available for you to peruse at any time. Further, a letter has been sent via ParentPay regarding a very exciting trip the children will be undertaking in early October to the Jorvik Viking Centre in York. Please can I ask that you let us know as soon as possible if your child will be coming along.
I look forward to meeting you at our first parents' evening in October, but if you have any queries in the meantime, please contact me via the school office.
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.
