Welcome to Kingfishers Class!

Autumn Term 2018
This term our topic is Space.
The children will learn all about Space, in particular our Solar System.
They will learn many facts but will also explore the creative and fantasy aspects of space through English, Art, Drama, Music, Physical Education and a trip to a planetarium.
This term's topic is 'Materials'. The children will be exploring the different properties of materials and their uses. Our class novel is 'The Iron Man' and so we will be basing some of our artwork on this. We have also been using recycled materials to weave with.
Later in the term we will be doing a 'Village Walk' to look at the different uses of buildings in Langwathby and how these have changed over time.
This term our topic is Plants and Animals where we will be learning about the creatures and wildlife around us. We have had a visit from local vet Chris Swift and enjoyed a visit to the Herdwick Farm with James and Helen.
We are excited to be learning about life cycles and are eagerly awaiting chicks to hatch and our caterpillars to turn into beautiful butterflies.
Try to read with your child as many times a week as is possible, ideally three times.
Complete one task in their Homework Book relating to the story you have read together.
Encourage your child to Log in to Purple Mash and try some of the specific 'to do' activities.
A link to Purple Mash can be found on the 'Children' drop down menu.
A weekly list of spellings are given to your child and stored in the front cover of their homework book or reading record.
Children should learn these spellings ready for a test on Tuesday /Wednesday of the following week.
We have PE on Monday and Friday.
Please ensure earings are taped/covered/removed on those days for safety reasons.
Our PE kit is black shorts and a red short sleeved t-shirt. A change of shoes either plimsoles or trainers is advisable.
We have been learning to use the PE apparatus safely. Look at us swinging, climbing and balancing. We had great fun!
