Welcome

Welcome to Spring 2 this half term we are studying the English book Animal Boogie to enable us to look at rhyme and repetition.  Each week we are focusing on one animal from the story and will have a writing lesson, a reading lesson and a speaking and listening lesson based on the animal.  The children are enjoying engaging with all of the props in the story and we are using the song band to sway to the end of the story.

 

 

In Maths we will be again spending a week on the different areas of Maths which are number, measure and using and applying.

Topic this half term is Lifecycles and we are looking at the lifecycle of a butterfly, frog, plant, humans , minibeasts and chickens.  We hope to welcome our live caterpillars soon and follow their journey to a butterfly.  

This half term we are going on a trip to Whipsnade Zoo to visit the Butterfly house.

Welcome back to Kingfisher class

 

We are looking forward to a busy half term.

 

This half term we are studying the English book The Tiger came to Tea which will link nicely with our Topic Come Dine with me.  We will complete lots of English activities linked to this lovely story, speaking &listening, writing, reading, ICT and craft activities.

 

 

This classic story of Sophie and her extraordinary teatime guest has been loved by millions of children since it was first published more than fifty years ago.

The doorbell rings just as Sophie and her mummy are sitting down to tea. Who could it possibly be? What they certainly don't expect to see at the door is a big furry, stripy tiger!

This inimitable picture book is perfect for reading aloud, or for small children to read to themselves time and again. First published in 1968 and never out of print, it has become a timeless classic enjoyed and beloved by generations of children.
The magic begins at teatime!

 

In Maths we will continue to focus on a different area each week, for example, Money, Number, Shape, Measure and Positional language.

 

This half term we have booked a trip to Pizza hut in the Italian week of Come Dine with me.  The children will have the opportunity to choose their own toppings for their own individual pizza and eat it for lunch. 

 

Check back to this page to see some pictures of our trip to Pizza Hut

First Stories: Sleeping Beauty is the perfect introduction for young children to this classic fairy tale. Push, pull and turn mechanisms bring the story to life and introduce the main characters: the sleeping princess and the prince who wakes her. This well-loved fairy tale is beautifully imagined for a new generation by children's illustrator Dan Taylor.

In Maths we will be spending a week studying the following areas money, number, measure, geometry and positional language.

Our Topic this half term is Over the Rainbow and we will be looking at a different colour each week and the children will have the opportunity to dress in that colour for each Assembly.

Cookery this half term is non yeast bread and we will be making various breads such as focaccia, naan bread and soda bread.

We are planning a Christmas trip to Poplars nursery to see the Christmas lights and reindeers.
