Welcome to Kingfisher Class!

 

Welcome to Kingfishers!

 

Miss Mackenzie, Mrs Frost, Mrs Truesdell and Mrs Aniol-Szwarc.

 

How is it the Summer term already?! It's been a fantastic year so far, getting back to normality and I'm so glad that it has meant lots more opportunities for the children - such as external sporting events and going to Little Canada! It won't be long until they are gearing up ready for year 5.

 

Topics being covered from now until the end of the year:

 

Maths: Area and perimeter, improper fractions and mixed numbers, geometry and some statistics. Obviously a big focus on fluency and times tables with the MTC coming up in June.

 

English: Currently reading 'The Butterfly Lion' by Michael Morpurgo and after half term will be looking at the poem 'From a Railway Carriage' by Robert Louis Stevenson and 'Stig of the Dump' by Clive King. All will have a variety of writing units based on the high quality texts.

 

Science: Currently looking at 'Living things and their habitats' and next half term will be looking (listening) at 'sound'.

 

Topic: This half term is a Geography unit with the key question 'How can small actions today change the world?' looking at sustainability and after half term will be a History unit based around Britain's settlement by the Anglo-Saxons and the Scots.

 

Art/DT: focus on structures and sculptures.

 

Lots more exciting sporting events happening for the whole school after half term as well as some lovely events being run by The Friends.
