Kingfisher Class (UKS2)
Welcome to Kingfisher class.
We are a mixed Year 5 and Year 6 class our teacher is Mrs Murray and our teaching assistant is Mrs Ireson (HLTA).
Our classroom is a well-organised, inviting and exciting place to learn. The children in Kingfisher Class are expected to become more independent as their time in year 5 progresses to prepare them for year 6 and SATs. We expect all children to demonstrate a good growth mindset. In year 6, each child can become an ambassador, which helps them to learn about responsibility and to gain leadership skills. Our year 6 pupils have the important responsibility of contributing towards the smooth running of our school; we really value their efforts and mature attitude towards this. We also promote the importance of teamwork, which is evident within our classroom.
Due to covid-19 restrictions, when it is safe to do so we will go on trips and take part in many activities such as assemblies, productions, and take part sporting festivals and competitions against other schools in the Aspire and Richard Lander partnerships. In the past have enjoyed visits to the beach, Falmouth Art Gallery, the Minack Theatre and The Eden Project, and we have competed in a variety of sporting festivals and competitions run by Aspire and the Richard Lander Sports Partnership.
In Kingfisher Class, PE is on Wednesday afternoons. Please ensure full PE kits are in school every Wednesday, they will bring them home the same day. Weekly homework assignments to complete at home are posted on Google Classroom on Wednesdays and need to be handed in by the following Monday.
Reading should be enjoyed daily – every child is expected to read and discuss their text for at least 15-20 minutes, either independently or to an adult. They should then write how much they have read in their reading record, which should be initialled daily by an adult at home. Pupils are also expected to learn their spellings and times tables each week, these are given to the children on Friday and are tested the following Friday.
We share up to date pictures and information on our Twitter and Facebook feed so that you can share our learning journey.
As always, if you have any questions, please make contact via email on firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone one of our secretaries- Mrs Holmes and Mrs Hall.
