Kingfishers

Welcome to the Class Page
Hello and welcome to the Kingfisher class. I hope you had a wonderful summer holiday and are ready for Year Five! Helping the children with their learning this year is Mr Young (Class Teacher). In addition, we also have help from our wonderful Teaching Assistants, Ms Burgess and Miss Gillings. We are also lucky to have Mrs Martin, our new apprentice teaching assistant, on Mondays.  
Important notices

•PE will be on a Tuesday. The children will have one session in the morning and one session in the afternoon. It is essential that children wear their PE kit to school on these days. They should have their Knowle t-shirt, hoodie, black shorts and suitable trainers.

• I have noticed that some children are arriving at school without a coat on rainy days. Please ensure your child has a coat if the weather is forecast to be raining.

Homework and home learning

The children will receive spellings and times tables every week on a Friday. It is important that this homework is completed to ensure your child is consolidating their learning. 

 

We also expect the children to be reading regularly. This will give the children the opportunity to take AR quizzes regularly in school and maintain a high pass rate. We would expect a minimum of 15-20 minutes of reading, 5 times a week. Please ensure your child brings their reading book into school each day.

Parent overview
This term our topic is 'The Victorians'. During this topic we will focus our learning on life in a Workhouse, the Industrial Revolution, living standards for children and families in the Victorian era and education during this time.
Pupils' learning
On Monday 11th November, we went to Morwellham Quay! We had such a great time! On the trip, we took part in four activities. We went on the train through the copper mines, we went to Victorian school, we made bread and we dressed up in Victorian clothes. Here's a picture of us all lookig fabulous in our outfits!
On 4th November 2019 in PSHE, Kingfishers talked about equality. We agreed that everybody is equal but we are all different and this should be celebrated and embraced. We then spent time 'speed dating!' where we had one minute to discuss how we are similar and how we are different to our partner before moving on to the next person. Have a look at us in action!

On Wednesday 9th October, we were very lucky as the smoothie bike came to school! There is a city wide project that is promoting how important it is to walk to school, stay fit and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. Some of our children got the chance to pedal on the smoothie bike and they all got to drink a delicious, healthy smoothie!

 

The pictures below show two of our children on the bike!

On Wednesday 25th September, the children took part in a science investigation where they had to think of ways to separate shells and sand from water. The children discovered that they could use funnels and filter paper to separate their solution. The photos below show some of the children in action!
