Kingfisher Class

Teacher/Teachers: Miss Hopkin 

Teaching assistants: Miss V Lakin 

PE Days: Wednesday and Thursday 

Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on each of these days. 

Current Class book: The Polar Bear Explorer's Club - Alex Bell


Spelling words are given on a Monday and will be tested the following Monday.  The emphasis will be foremost on the spelling rule rather than the word itself so please do not worry if you believe a particular word to be too tricky for your child. If your child masters the spelling rule, this helps immensely with reading. 


Please encourage your child to read at home, discuss books, ask questions about what they have read and enjoy their reading. The children's library book links to their reading level and when finished, they take a short quiz on Accelerated Reader. 

TT Rockstars

 The children also have a Times Table Rock stars account to use daily at home for practice. 

Additional Information

I do encourage all the children to bring in a bottle of water for drinking during lessons. They can fill this in the classroom, and they are stored next to our sink. 

Please ensure that your children have separate indoor and outdoor shoes. 

I urge for all items of clothing to be labelled. 

Don't forget to follow our school and class Twitter account as this is a great way to see some of the activities we, and other classes, get up to inside and outside of the classroom.
