Welcome to Kingfishers Class!


Welcome to our class page. Miss Card is our teacher with Mrs Southern, Mrs Broomhead and Mrs Freeney supporting throughout the week as Teaching Assistants. We are a mixed class of 18 Year 3/4 children.


Monday 16th January 2023


We continue learning about Leon and the Place Between in English lesson including Guided Reading. Many of the children are also trialling a new reading programme on the computers called Reading Plus to support their comprehension and fluency. Having looked at character descriptions last week, we are learning about the features of speech in a narrative including inverted commas and variety of synonyms for said.


Maths continued our learning of multiplication and division around times tables. We have just started a new programme of times table learning with daily timed challenges and chanting times tables to support our learning. Our challenge is to get better each day by only competing against our prior score. The children are already fantastic at chanting tables!


This term, our science topic is about light. We will learn about light sources, reflection and shadows. Children will investigate using different light sources, how light travels and how shadows are formed. 


In History, we will learn more about British prehistory from the length of time it covered, archaeology as evidence and artefacts from the past which help historians/archaeologists to know what happened in the past. Art is linked to our topic exploring the earliest art, using nature to create art and cave paintings.


Computing will cover coding using J2e to animate sprites in a variety of ways. 


RE explores leadership by trying to understand why people follow religious leaders like Muhammad and Guru Nanak. We have learned about qualities of a leader by talking to Mr Howard and will continue to explore what makes a good leader. 


We will continue to improve our fitness with a daily mile (or indoor challenge if it's too wet) and PE aerobics workout on a Friday. Don't forget PE kits!


Homework is due in on Monday, and new homework will be set on Wednesday.
