Tuesday 15th September was International Democracy Day and we discussed the meaning of democracy before considering the roles and responsibilities of a School Council member. We then held a democratic vote. It was a very close-run contest! We are delighted to report that our elected representatives are Tom K and Charlotte.
Continuing in the spirit of democracy, the children were given the opportunity to suggest and vote for spelling group names now that they are moving onto the Year 3 words. It was a very interesting debate and we were very surprised by the winning suggestion. 16 children voted for A, B, C; 10 children voted for the names of chocolate bars and four children abstained. It is clear we have very practical minded children in Kingfisher class! Incidentally, we were delighted by how many chose to challenge themselves in the spelling test and have a go at words not in their 'test' set. The majority truly rose to the occasion and we were encouraged by their scores. Thank you for working in partnership with us and aiming high.
Last week Christmas card templates went out. Can these please come back into school no later than Friday 25th September with name and class on the front. If you need another copy of the template please let us know. Thank you in advance for your continuous support.
First full week back!
It has been a busy week in Kingfisher class. Everyone has managed to work their way up the behaviour reward chart and this only demonstrates how settled, responsible and wonderful everyone in Kingfisher class are. Everyone has been a kind, helpful and caring friend to our new classmate Maggie.
We are getting a lot of show and tell coming into school and as much as we love listening to belongings you are passionate about we don't always have time in the day share it. If you have any show and tell relating to our class topics it could be shared with Kingfisher class as a starter for that lesson.
Tom K has kindly shared a letter from the Queen that he received this week. We found out that the Queen wakes up at 8 o'clock every morning to a pied piper playing in her garden!
Some of our learning can be found in the gallery.
Enjoy your weekend Kingfisher class
Mrs Field and Mrs Rainer
We are really excited to be welcoming you all back to school and hearing about your summer adventures. We have lots of fun activities and topics planned for you to enjoy this term and we're eager to share them with you. (Our Long Term plan and timetable can be found on our learning page.)
Our time to arrive at school is 08.40 coming through the main gate off School Road where you will be met with hand sanitiser (similar to when you came to school in pods just before the summer holidays). You will then put your belongings (coats, bags, lunchboxes PE kits) on your pegs, your water bottles and your own hand sanitiser (optional) can be kept at your table. In the classroom you will find your trays have all your books and stationery that you will need underneath your table space.
Learning by experimenting, small group work, resources and visual aids (which will be cleaned after use) will continue as normal, so please be assured that school routine is very similar to before and we are always here to help, listen and guide you just like we did before.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
Mrs Field and Mrs Rainer
Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you.
