Welcome to Year 1/2 - Kingfishers!
Hello! Welcome to Kingfishers. We are a class of Year 1 and 2 children who work hard, enjoy learning and have lots of fun.
What do we do in Kingfishers?
Every day we have a maths lesson, an English lesson, a structured phonics lesson and a guided reading session. We make these lessons as active, fun and practical as possible and, wherever possible, link them to our topic work so they are meaningful and relevant to the children.
In the afternoons, we have our Topic, Computing, Science, PE and RE lessons.
We go on visits to help us with our Topics. As part of our current topic on Toys we will be visiting the Museum so look out for some fabulous pictures of this on our class page!
We like to share our reading books at home so that we can get better with our reading skills. We get new books every week and we’re pleased when someone at home signs our reading record or puts a smiley face to show that we’ve tried hard. We also choose a book, to take home, from our school library.
Please find below a list of websites that you can use to access various learning including English (phonics and reading), Mathematics and Science-based activities at home:
