Miss Kitto and Mrs Foote
Hello Kingfishers, family and friends! Welcome back – we hope you had a lovely summer holiday. Kingfishers class is taught by Miss Kitto. We are supported in lour earning by Mrs Foote. We have some other fabulous adults working in our class throughout the week: Mrs Gomes (Portuguese), Miss Prater (Music), Miss Finn (RE) and Mrs Smith (PE)
In Kingfishers, we expect the highest of standards in terms of behaviour, attitude, learning and homework. We aim to set the standard for all the other pupils in the school, being positive role models by standing and walking proud as we move around the school.
In English this term we will be focussing on grammar skills and spelling rules and then writing narratives and a range of non-fiction pieces. We will begin the term by reading the book, Once upon a fairytale…This book guarantees to take you on your own adventure, perhaps through a forest, an ocean, a sky full of stars whatever and wherever your imagination takes you, you are in for a treat!
In Maths, we focus on Number: exploring place value, rounding and negative numbers. We then focus on our calculation skills. The children will complete weekly Arithmetic Tests and will continue with multiplication practice ahead of the Year 4 multiplication check.
In Science we will be being investigating animals including humans. There will be plenty of investigations!
The children will also have PE, Art, PHSE, RE, DT, Computing, Music and Portuguese weekly. The P.E days will be Tuesdays (indoor) and Thursdays (outside). Please be prepared to do PE in the winter months!
Homework will be set on a Wednesday, and will be marked the following Wednesday. There is an after school homework club on a Monday that will offer support, or if your child is stuck or struggling, they can ask one of the Y3 adults for help and they can look at it one break or lunch time. If your child persistently forgets or does no complete their homework they will do it during lunch time with an adult.
We have lots of exciting opportunities for the children planned and we will let you know in due course when everything is confirmed. We look forward to a fantastic happy year of learning and making memories.
We look forward to working with our Y3 families for their next chapter at Manor Court.
