We are the Kingfishers.

There are 30 children in our class and we are in Year 4 and 5.

Miss Cruikshank is our Teacher and Mrs K is our Teaching Assistant.​

 In Kingfishers we work hard and have fun. During our first few days back at school we have been busy getting ready for the year ahead. We have been...

  • Setting our class rules.
  • Thinking about our own personal goals and targets.
  • Getting to know our new class mates and teachers.
  • Creating some beautiful artwork using water colours, wax crayons and collage materials.
  • Meeting our new talk partners for the week ahead.
  • Applying for our class jobs for the term ahead.
  • Holding nominations and votes for our School Council representatives.
  • Setting up our drawers and books for different subjects.
  • Learning a little about our new topic 'The Aztecs'

 

Next week will be starting our formal curriculum lessons.

On Wednesday, after school, there is an opportunity for parents and carers to come into the classroom after school to 'Meet the Teacher'. This is a great opportunity for you to come and meet me and the learn about the different classroom routines and home learning expectations for the year ahead. I look forward to seeing you all there.
