Welcome to Kingfisher Crew's class page!

 

We are a Year 1 class.

Miss Foreman is our teacher and Miss Dolan is our LSA. 

We have PE on a Thursday and Friday with Mr Neate. 

 

 

Hello Kingfisher Crew! laugh

 

It was lovely to return to our bubbles this week - we are really missing the children who haven't returned to school! I hope that you are all beginning to get excited for your move to Year 2 - you will be able to Zoom with your new teacher next week. Please find your home learning for next week below. You're doing an amazing job and I am so proud of you all - keep it up!

 

Take care,

 

Miss Foreman 🌈

Our LOCKDOWN Acrostic Poems

Hello little Kingfishers! laugh

 

I hope that you have all had a lovely weekend. It feels strange to be back at home again! Hopefully the school can re-open again soon so that we can return to our new 'normal'. Your home learning for this week is below this message. Try and do what you can, it would be fantastic to do a little bit of reading, writing and maths to keep your brain active! I'd love to see what you get up to so please send me an email with any work you would like to share with me. 

 

Take care and stay safe,

 

Miss Foreman 🌈

Home learning week beginning 29th June

Hello Kingfishers! laugh

 

I hope that you are all well. It is very strange being back at home and I am hoping that we can return to our bubbles again soon! Please find below your home learning for this week. We have included a project task about habitats which can run for the next couple of weeks so please don't feel like you have to do too much of that in one go! 

 

Have a lovely week and enjoy the sunshine!
 

Take care,

Home Learning week beginning 22nd June

Hello Kingfisher Crew! laugh

 

I hope that those of you at home have enjoyed your home learning this week. It has been lovely to see some photos of what you have been doing! As more time passes in this strange situation, if at any point you feel that the suggested timetable isn't working for you then feel free to change it to suit you. As long as you keep your brain ticking over with a little bit of reading, writing and maths then do what makes you happy!  We have included a "Longer Project" about habitats for you to do instead of the timetable if you wish.

 

For those who you who have been in school this week, it has been so lovely to see you all! I am looking forward to welcoming you, and a few new faces, back next week! smiley

 

Have a lovely weekend - fingers crossed the sunshine comes back!

Home learning for week beginning 15th June

Hello little Kingfishers! laugh

 

I hope that you have all had a good week. As you know, school is partially re-opening from Monday and I will be teaching a Year 1 bubble from Tuesday 9th.  I am really looking forward to seeing those of you who are returning!

 

For those of you who are staying at home next week, you will be missed and I will be thinking of you! As of next week, your work will be set by Mr Wilson, Mrs Arney and Mrs Gartland. It will be very similar to what you have already been getting from me. Sadly, I will not be able to respond to emails as promptly or as frequently as I have been. However, I would still love to hear from you and see what you have been doing. So, if you do wish to keep in touch, please send me the piece of work you are most proud of each week and I will do my best to respond.  I am currently unsure whether or not we will be able to continue with our weekly Zoom calls but I will let you know soon.

 

I know that this is a very strange time for everyone and I hope that you understand why these changes are necessary going forward.

 

Take care and stay safe,

Miss Foreman 🌈

I am missing you all! It was lovely to speak with some of you on Zoom this morning. Receiving the photos and videos of your home learning is my favourite part of the day - so please keep sending them to me! Below is your home learning for week five, I hope you enjoy the activities. You have been so creative in taking a topic and turning into a fun activity, like setting up a shop to practise using money - it is wonderful! Keep up the fantastic work, I am so proud of you all.

Term 3 and 4 - Who Were the Pirates?

 

You can find out more about what we are doing in the term overview and knowledge organiser below.

Toby and the Great Fire of London

Still image for this video
We have been using Talk4Writing to help us learn the story of 'Toby and the Great Fire of London'. We have learnt half of the story off by heart and we are going to create our own endings.

Curriculum Web - What's so 'Great' about the Great Fire of London?

Slides from our 'Meet the Teacher' Session

Our Science Experiment

 

We have buried four pieces of cheese, each wrapped in a different material, just like Samuel Pepys did during the Great Fire of London. We are trying to find out which material will be the best at protecting the cheese. Here are some photos of us setting up the experiment. We are going to dig up the cheese in a few weeks to see the results!

What's so 'Great' about the Great Fire of London?

 

For the launch of our project, we had a visitor from the past! Jethro, a servant to Samuel Pepys, came to tell us about what life was like in 1666, the year of the Great Fire of London.  We learned about how the fire started, how it spread so quickly and how Samuel Pepys spoke to the King to let him know how serious it was...
