In Kingfisher class we largely follow a topic based curriculum, meaning that our English, topic and science lessons are linked by a common theme. Using a cross-curricular approach to teaching enables the children to make connections in their learning, and allows them to apply the skills they have been taught in a variety of different contexts.
As Kingfisher class is a mixed age setting, we take our topics from across the Key Stage 2 curriculum so that we can cater for all of the different year groups within the class.
This year in Kingfisher class (2019/20) we will be studying the following topics:
|Autumn 1||Autumn 2||Spring 1|
|Mountains||Crime & Punishment||Mayan Civilisation|
|Spring 2||Summer 1||Summer 2|
In Kingfisher class, homework consists of:
Key Skills Learning Booklets – Booklets containing activities relating to key skills in maths and English will be given out twice a half term. Skills covered in these booklets will include times tables and number bonds practice, reading comprehension, and grammar and punctuation practice and revision.
Spellings – Spellings are weekly and are usually differentiated by year group. Whenever possible, all of our children will be working upon the same spelling rule each week. All spellings for each half term will be upon the class newsletter (as per homework - see the PDF file below)
Reading – Children should aim to read at home as often as they can (minimum 4 times a week). To encourage reading at home, the school runs a 'reading wristband' scheme where children are awarded different wristbands to signify how many home reads they have completed over the year.
25 reads - purple wristband
40 reads - silver wristband
90 reads - gold wristband
140 reads - multi-colour wristband
