Welcome to the Kingfishers' class; where learning is fun and children are happy. There are 13 children from Reception and  Year 1 in the class, working with their teacher Mrs. Oakes and their teaching assistant, Mrs. Sharp and Mrs Denyer-Smith, along with our wonderful team of volunteers who help to provide a stimulating learning environment.

Curriculum Outline - Autumn 1 2017

The following information is a brief summary of what your child will be learning this half term. Teachers plan to ensure full coverage of the Early Years foundation Stage for reception and the National Curriculum for years 1-6. Subjects are linked together to make learning interesting and fun. Teachers give children work that is matched to their ability, assessing them frequently, to ensure they have an accurate picture of each child’s understanding. If you are able to support some of these activities by encouraging your child to find out more or bring resources in to school we would be very grateful and it would also help to motivate your child. Thank you.
