Welcome to Kingfisher Class
Summer Term 2019
We are a mixed Class of Year 2 and 3 pupils. Our Class Teachers are Ms Wells and Miss Laurie. Our classroom Teaching Assistants are Mrs Barber, Mrs Kirkum and Mrs Samson. Pupils are taught Science by Mr Haynes (Science Lead), Art by Mrs Pickess (Art Lead), French by Mrs Kirkum (specialist French teacher) and PE by Mr Chapman who is the Wilby School Sports Lead.
This term we will be learning about Ancient Egypt. We will explore a range of historical evidence such as photos of artefacts and discoveries from these times. We will learn about hieroglyphic writing and also the role of pharaohs in Ancient Egyptian society. We are looking forward to our class trip to Norwich Castle Museum to see the Egyptian display (this will be after half-term.)
In literacy we will write mystery stories set in the Ancient Egyptian pyramids. Later in the term, we will also write non-fiction newspaper reports on the discovery of Tutankhamen.
In RE we will learn about the Christian faith focussing on why Christians trust and follow Jesus. We will explore the concept of trust and what this means to us.
In maths we will learn about different measures including length, height, perimeter, mass, capacity and temperature. This will be a good opportunity to apply our times tables skills to studying scales and intervals. It is essential that the children continue to work hard at learning their times tables. Y2 pupils need to be able to count in x2, x5 and x10 and Year 3 pupils also need to know x3, x4 and x8.
In Kingfisher Class spelling and grammar homework will be set, collected in and marked on Fridays. Times tables homework will be set and marked on Thursdays.
Kingfisher Class go swimming every Wednesday morning this term.
We will be continuing to do ReflectED and growth Mindset lessons on Wednesday afternoons. For more information about ReflectED and Growth Mindset please look under the 'Parents' tab on the web-site Home Page.
