Learning from Home Week Beginning 1st June 2020
Home Learning 18th May 2020
Dear Parents and Carers,
I hope you are all safe and well.
This week we are moving on with History by trying to understand the Historical context in which the Puritans made their decisions to leave England - we will focus on the religious beliefs of the time. In Science we will be looking at our nutrition, why is is important and start to consider if we need to make any changes to our own diet. In Maths, we are revisiting skills learnt earlier in the year in fractions, decimals and percentages - please ask your child what 'The Magic' is and get them to use it if they need extra help. They will be flexing their Art muscles again by sketching an image to go with our topic to use in a later project.
I am sure you will be following the latest updates on a return to school; we will do our very best to keep you updated.
Have a fantastic week.

Home Learning Week Beginning 27th April
This week we will be creating an explanation text about renewable and nonrenewable sources of electricity; incorporating some of our artwork. We will complete our Golden Age of Islam topic by investigating an invention from the time and see how it has developed to become the technology of today. Our maths continues to consolidate our learning on geometry.
Everything you will need is attached to a series of Parentmails. Please remember that there is no need to print anything off this week.
Stay home, stay safe and enjoy your learning.
Hello Everyone and welcome to the Summer Term.
For the next two weeks, we will be finishing our Electricity topic by creating an explanation text about renewable and non-renewable Electricity. This week is about refreshing our skills and next week is about creating a beautiful piece of presentation writing which will include artwork. The work for this week has been sent by Parentmail.
Please remember that we are the Kingfishers Class; we look after each other and, most importantly at the moment, ourselves. Enjoy the work and your time at home because whenever we get back to school, we have a lot of work to do to organise an end of Year 6 celebration. We already have some money for our event, but we could always do with more! Get your thinking caps on; what fund raising could we do at home?
Get creative and ask your parent of carer to e-mail you ideas to: email@example.com
Subject: Fund Raising Ideas.
Keep safe and well.
Here we are at the start of another week. Make sure you do something special with your time because, this will all be over one day and you will want to look back on a truly historical event with some happy memories.
I have sent a Parentmail with this week's work on (just until Wednesday) and then there are some ideas of things you might like to do over the holidays. Ihave attached the work here too.
Take care of yourself and each other. Remember - keep washing those hands.
Missing you all,
I hope you have had a fantastic week. Here are the answers to the Ration Challenge Questions Set 2. Hope you did well!
Welcome to the first full week of home learning. None of the learning activities need to be printed off but you may need to do some drawing or diagrams in your Home Learning book to show your answers clearly.
I will be posting other learning events and fun things to do as the week goes on so keep checking this page; have a great week.
I look froward to seeing you all as soon as possible. Keep your distance; keep safe and WASH THOSE HANDS!
For all those children working at home, please find attached the work for Thursday 19th and Friday 20th March.
Kingfishers are missing all of you and we look forward to seeing you again soon.
Bringing World War II to Life
The museum was set up by the Panton Brothers in honour of their older brother who had died in service on a Lancaster Bomber. Along with a Lancaster Bomber and other amazing artefacts, the museum houses the Escaper's Museum. This is where you can learn the story of those who escaped Colditz, the real life story of 'The Great Escape' and the events that happened to one airman - Ronald T. Emeny.
This was a fantastic way to bring the children's learning to life; it was like a step back in time. Along with history and facts, they were able to appreciate the human cost of those going to war and all those left at home.
We are using these experiences to support our writing.
