Welcome back to all of the Kingfisher class
We have been so pleased with how well you have all settled back into school life over the past 2 weeks and look forward to having a fantastic year together.
A Magical World
Our topic for the Autumn Term is 'A Magical World' and most of our learning will be based on the excellent book 'Harry Potter and the Philosophers Stone'. The children have already enjoyed creating their own owls and making wands.They will take part in potions lessons to enhance their science thinking skills and will use some of the amazing illustrations from the book and watch short clips of the film to inspire their creative writing.
All children should bring a full waterbottle to school each morning
PE is on Wednesday
The children will be required to come to school in their PE kit - black joggers or leggings, a plain white T-shirt or a house T-shirt. They can wear either their school jumper or a house hoody. please wear school shoes as they will have trainers in school to change into.
Woodland is on Fridays.
The children will be required to come to school in their Woodland kit - black joggers or leggings, school polo shirt or a house T-shirt. They can wear either their school jumper or a house hoody. please wear school shoes as they will have outdoor shoes in school to change into.
Homework will be set on a Friday and is to returned by Wednesday at the latest.
In addition to this children will be able to choose tasks from the homelearning grid in their book. It is expected that they will complete at least 4 of these each half term.
The children should be reading at least 4 times a week and recording this in their diaries. Regular reading is so important in their developement of language, knowledge and understanding of the world. Non fiction magazines, childrens newspapers, and non fiction books are all important as well as their fiction books.
The year 4 children will have a statutary timestable test in May and it is the national expectation that all children can rapidly recall all timestables to 12 at this point. It is important that they continually practice these at home. There are fun songs to sing along to on you tube, TT Rockstars and various Apps that will help them.
