Welcome to Kingfishers in room TA5
 
In our class Lorraine is our class teacher, Kylie is our teaching assistant and Mel is our classroom assistant. We are also lucky to have Kristie as our teaching student!There are 9 of us altogether ( 7 boys and 2 girls) and we are a lovely mix of Years 3 and 4.
We love making friends, playing games, exploring objects and learning new things.
 
Stay Safe Kingfishers
 
Kingfisher class is open to support some key/critical worker children during new lockdown measure. Protecting lives and keeping each other safe and healthy is paramount at this time. Remote learning is currently the safest way to do this based on Government guidance. There will be a range of activities, tasks, stories and songs that you can access on this page which will reflect the teaching and learning that would have been taking place under normal school circumstances.
Our Topic for Spring is called ROAR STOMP SQUEAK, through which we will be exploring animals and rainforests! Continue to scroll to find more information about our topic and home learning activities to complete.
 
 
 
We hope you have had a lovely Christmas Break and are staying safe and healthy during the new tier restrictions. Welcome back to Spring Term in 2021. We hope this year brings lots of fun, laughter and happy memories to you all.
 
How do we learn in Kingfishers?
 
Communication, Thinking and Problem Solving, Creative Learning
 
We all communicate and learn in different ways and in Kingfisher we have lots of fun trying out various learning styles to see which help us to grow and enjoy learning. We have lots of sensory activities to encourage conversation and develop vocabulary. These can include water try, messy play activities, using our senses to explore the world around us and developing our fine and gross motor skills. We use various resources to support our communication ranging from PECS, Makaton, Gestural Prompts and Objects of reference. We take part in Sensory Circuits during the week which help with Alertness, Organisation and Calmness. We explore indoor and outdoor learning settings and have opportunities to participate in adult led group work, 1:1 workstation tasks, child led learning and continuous provision learning through play.
