Kingfishers 2021-2022

21.10.21

We dressed in green today and donated money to help by seeds and plants for our outdoor area.

18.10.21

We all looked amazing in our superhero costumes. We enjoyed making Supertatoes and creating a comic strip. As part of our Design Technology unit we followed our plans to make a superhero sandwich using the skills we have learnt and the knowledge of the different food groups. Our sandwiches were delicious! 

15.10.2021

In science we investigated the best way to remove germs from our hands. Using glitter to represent the germs, first we we used cold water, then warm water, then cold water and soap and finally warm water and soap to see which way was the most effective. Our results showed us that the best way to remove bacteria was to wash our hands with warm water and soap as there was hardly any glitter left when we did this. We also watched a video, (and sang along loudly!) which showed us all the parts of our hands that we need to focus on, such as in between our fingers and our thumbs.

Our Keen Kingfishers have had an amazing first week back in school. We are so proud of them all for how well they have settled in and coped with the expectations of life in year 2. There has been amazing partitioning work in maths, great reading of our new text, Supertato by Sue Hendra as well as lots of work that has made our classroom look fantastic. They deserve a rest this weekend!

We hope you all had a great summer! We are looking forward to the start of a new academic year (hopefully one that is a little more normal!) and are excited to welcome all our new Kingfishers, along with their families tomorrow. If anyone is in a position where they have to isolate and be away from school then please do contact us on the email addresses below and we can put in place some live teaching sessions and remote learning if you are well enough. Please do check on this page to see some of the work we have been completing in school.

Thank you.

Kingfishers, we have made it to the end of the final week of home learning. We are bursting with pride! You have made us smile every day when we see you all on Zoom and with the amazing work you have been sharing with us. You all looked amazing in your World Book Day masks too.

We will continue to post home learning challenges on here each week in case a period of isolation has to be completed. You will have received a letter from the office with details of Zoom links should this occur.

Be ready with those lovely smiles of yours to greet us at the door on Monday morning. We can't wait to have all our Kingfishers back with us!

Hello to our wonderful Kingfishers! We hope you all enjoyed your half term break. As we look forward to a brand new term, we hope you are still holding ten fingers in the air, ready for our countdown until we can all be back together again in our lovely classroom. (All ears on the announcement tomorrow.)

Below you will find your new learning challenges for this week which we hope you will all enjoy. Please remember to email Miss Lewis with any work you complete. Don't forget to log on to Purple Mash too and access the new list of '2DO' jobs that have been set. The alternative ideas document is also there for those days when something else is needed to help you through.

We look forward to seeing all your faces on our class Zoom sessions too. Due to parent meetings there won't be any class Zooms on Monday 22nd February, we will see you all on Tuesday. (9 days left then!)

An extra challenge has been set too for World Book Day on Thursday 4th March. Design and make a mask of your favourite book character to wear on the class Zoom sessions on that day. We can't wait to see who you all choose!

Keep going Kingfishers! You are all amazing and we are so proud of you all.

Well, Keen Kingfishers we have reached the end of another week and have so much to be proud of. We have read so many great letters to persuade the playground equipment to stay, well done! Tinga Tinga art has been enjoyed by you all, ( parents included) you are a very artistic bunch! So many creative habitats have also been made, even one that lights up! We are so pleased that you could apply all the knowledge you have learnt in your science lessons.

 Here are the final home learning challenges for this half term before we all have a well deserved and much needed break. Don't forget the alternative ideas too, for those days when you just need a change. Keep going everyone and remember to email your work in. Hopefully we'll be back together again soon. We miss you all!

Hello Keen Kingfishers! We are all missing you so much in school. Well done for completing so much work at home, it's been another great week with lots of emails to make us smile, please keep sending them. Thank you to the parents too, your support and kind words are much appreciated. We understand how hard this is for everyone. You should be proud of all that you are achieving, we certainly are! Enjoy the learning challenges for next week.

Underneath the home learning you will also find a document that has lots of ideas for alternative activities that you can complete at home. We all have days when the learning challenges seem a little too much and our motivation appears to have deserted us, even the adults. So if you are having one of those days, have a look at the grid and see if there is something on there that will lift your mood and give your brain the break that is perhaps longing for. 

Just remember that we would still like to see what you are achieving so please ask your grown ups to email some pictures to us.

Today we travelled around the four countries of the United Kingdom learning the climate, finding famous landmarks, identifying capital cities and looking at general facts about each country. We located each country, its capital city and surrounding seas on a map. In Scotland we made delicious shortbread and a Loch Ness Monster, whilst visiting Northern Ireland we learnt some Irish dancing, we drew our own Welsh flag (the dragon was tricky!) and finally, in England we sketched some of London's most famous landmarks. Please ask us to share some of our knowledge with you!

Kingfisher parents 

You will find that your child now has spellings in their reading record to practise at home.  Every Friday there will be a spellings test and then we will issue new words to learn.  You may find that your child knows some of the words but we are currently revisiting and reinforcing to address any gaps in learning.  Please support your child in learning how to spell these words; they will be able to tell you how well they have done at the end of each week. 

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs Ricks & Miss Lewis
