Welcome to Kingsland class!
Welcome to the Autumn term. We hope you’ve had a relaxing Summer holiday, and are ready to hit the ground running in our new academic year. Please use the email address firstname.lastname@example.org to get in touch with your class teacher.
Our main topic this term will be Ancient Egypt. We will be studying: what life was like for people in Ancient Egypt, the Geography of the land, why farming was so crucial to the Ancient Egyptians, who the Pharaohs were, what their beliefs were and how we know about things that happened so long ago in the past.
In PE, children will be developing their general skills with multi-skills lessons, and also beginning to learn the sports of tag-rugby and
lacrosse. PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday but it would be useful if children had their PE kit in school everyday as we will be doing the daily mile.
Spellings will be given out on a Monday, and tested the following Monday. Reading at home is very important. We expect children to read at least three times a week at home and that as much as possible this is with an adult. Please make sure that there is a record of this in their reading record so that they can move up their reading journey and collect the prizes.
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
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.
