Welcome to Kingsland class!
We hope you all enjoyed your Easter break and are well rested and ready to hit the ground running in the Summer Term. We have lots of interesting and enjoyable activities in the pipeline, so as long as the weather is nice, we should be in for a good term.
Our main topic this term will be a UK comparison, in which we will be comparing our own town with a larger UK city. We will also be studying the science topics of animals including humans and electricity.
PE will be on a Wednesday and a Friday. Children will be developing skills in mini tennis, gymnastics, athletics and cricket.
We will also be taking part in our swimming unit. We will be visiting the Quarry pool every Friday morning.
Please ensure pupils have the correct PE kit on those days.
Spellings are no longer sent home because we have changed our spelling policy. If you would like to work on your child’s spellings with them, please ask them to record their five chosen spellings in their reading record on Mondays. Reading at home is very important. We expect children to read daily at home and that they are heard read by an adult at home at least three times a week. Each time a child reads, please remember to make a record in their reading diary.
We always warmly welcome extra support in class, so please do not be afraid to offer to come in if you think there is something you could help with. Questions and queries about your child’s learning are also welcomed so please don’t hesitate to ask.
Mrs Cotterill and Mr Rogers
Pupils had a super afternoon working on their gymnastics skills, with the help on young leaders from Belvidere Secondary School and coaches from Darwin Gymnastics club.
Here is a copy of the Darwin Values tick list that we cover in Year 3 and 4. We are creating a portfolio for children as they move through school. We are asking parents to send in photos. certificates, awards that show the new skills or activities children have taken part in. This could be photos of them on their bike, scooter, roller skates, or of them cooking or sewing. It might be charity events they have been involved in. Any questions regarding this, please ask.

Introducing the School Council rep for Kingsland class. This is Addison and she is very excited to have been elected. She wanted to be the rep as she has lots of super ideas and was keen to be involved in raising money for charity.
Meet Barney - he is the Eco Council rep from Kingsland class this year. He will be working with Mrs Blake to think about how we can care for and improve our school environment.
