Welcome to Kingfisher Class at the start of Autumn Term 2017!
We hope you have had a refreshing and happy summer break. Mrs. Daniels and Mrs. Papworth are looking forward to seeing you all again and getting to know the new members of the class and their families better. There will be an opportunity in Week 3 to speak to teachers after school so that we can share and explain routines and expectations and discuss any other aspects of Kingfisher Class that you would find helpful. In the mean time, you may contact us directly via the office or email if you have any questions:
Generally speaking, Mrs. Papworth will teach Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday until lunchtime, leaving the latter part of the week in Mrs. Daniel's care. Mrs. Bryant teaches PE last thing on a Tuesday to allow the other teachers to work together on planning and curriculum issues.
This term is jam packed with exciting activities and we have summarised the main topics that will be covered below. We have also included a typical timetable for your information. In our first week together we will be making birds nests as part of our Science topic on habitats and taking part in some interesting activities relating to our study of Ancient Greeks. The children will be able to find a picture of themselves as a Greek Citizen on our topic display board! At the start of our first full week together, we will work in our house groups to create an enormous 'Art Attack' style piece of work which will act as a writing stimulus for the first Wonderful Write of the year.
On a more practical note please remember that PE is on Tuesday and Thursday each week. You may prefer to leave PE kits at school and wash them at the end of each half term. A named water bottle would also be helpful, so that your child can have a drink whenever they are thirsty.
We look forward to working together over the coming weeks!
Mrs. Papworth and Mrs. Daniels
