There are 20 children in Kingfisher's class. Mr Good is our class teacher. Keep an eye on the web site for all of the exciting things we have in store!
Now that your child is in the last year of lower key stage 2, it is essential that they continue to build their independence, therefore we would ask that you drop off and collect your child from the main playground rather than accompanying them into the building.
Year 4 is an exciting one and have lots of fantastic experiences and topics planned throughout the year. To help your child have a deeper understanding and to help make their learning more purposeful and enjoyable we would be grateful if you could assist them with any homework that has been set including the weekly Fab 4 Reading and basic multiplication knowledge, 2x - 12x tables.
Our Fab4 scores this term have not been as good as they could or should have been! Let's make sure we can improve on this next term and ensure more children can achieve this goal, getting their reward!
We have PE every Monday afternoon and a session with Mini Kicks every Tuesday morning (this may change after Christmas).
Our topic next term is 1066.
What happened when, and how did William come to be called the Conqueror? Are you ready for a Norman invasion? A French Duke has staked a claim for our kingdom!
This topic is very creative with a history focus. We will be learning about William, Harold and Edward, the Bayeux Tapestry and looking at castles. In DT we will be designing drawbridges and castles. We will be learning about dealing with conflict.
Throughout English this term, our focus will be on Charlottes Web by E.B. White.
Over this term, we have shared lots of exciting memories! We had great fun for Children in Need, planted trees on the school field from the Woodland Trust, watched Aladdin at Newark Palace theatre and we have been lucky enough to see the Magnus Swing band!
Next term, we will also be preparing for our Easter production.
