Welcome to Kingfisher Class!
Mrs Cooke is your teacher. Mrs Wick, Mrs Cox, Dr Davis and Mrs Wilkinson also work in our classroom.
PE days continue to be Monday and Tuesday. Please make sure that PE kits are kept in school at all times as we sometimes change our timetable to accommodate other events in school. On Tuesdays PE will be taught by Premier Sport whilst Mrs Cooke has designated non-contact time.
All parents are welcome to attend Celebration assembly on Friday mornings and then to come along for Buddy Reading afterwards. If your child is due to receive a certificate in Celebration assembly I will try to let you know, but sometimes we make our decisions on a Thursday afternoon and may not have chance to see you in time. When it is your child's birthday they will celebrate on the Friday of that week.
Please come and see me at the end of the day if you have any questions or concerns.
Update - Friday 21st June
This week was Happy, Healthy Week! In our Personal and Social Education sessions during this week we have talked lots about similarities and differences between ourselves and others. We have learned to try and look past the clothes we wear and focus on our bodies and physical features. It was particularly interesting to discuss how we could find out which of two similar babies was a boy and which was a girl - only finding out for sure when we removed their nappies and discussed 'private parts'. We also thought about skills which we find easy and those which we might need to work at.
Healthy eating and looking after our bodies was also an important part of our learning. In Literacy we continued work on the Charlie and Lola book 'I will never, not ever eat a tomato'. We wrote letters to Charlie giving him advice on how to get Lola to eat a more healthy diet and letters to Lola explaining why she should eat a range of foods, not just cake and pink milk!
Of course the week culminated with Sports Day - what better way to look after our bodies than an afternoon of exercise?
Next week we will get back to our Farms topic - focusing on the foods that farmers grow in this country and thinking about the plants that we are growing in our garden and classroom.
