Welcome to Kingfisher Primary School and Children's Centre!
Welcome back to the beginning of Term 5. New learning topics have begun across the school and these are listed below. Each class has sent home a newsletter as well allowing you to know about each topic in more detail. Class newsletters also detail other important information such as: homework expectations, PE times and other relevant information
In Term 5, children at Kingfisher will begin their new learning topics. Here is a brief overview of each topic split into the different year groups:
Year 1 are learning about 'The locality of the school'-What's it like living in Princes Park?
Year 2 are learning about 'The British way of life in the distant past'- Why were castles built?
Year 3 are learning about 'UK locality'- Is everywhere the same as here?
Year 4 are learning about 'River systems'- Why do we call our towns, the Medway towns?
Year 5 are learning about 'Environmental Issue'- Is a local airport a good idea for Medway?
Year 6 are learning about 'Britian since 1930'- How did Chatham help win the war?
Each learning topic is based around an enquiry question, which the children seek to answer during their topic lessons. The children are encouraged to use their literacy skills to help them learn about their topic work. This involves reading about the topic they are studying, both in books and on screen, engaging in a variety of different activities to develop their speaking and listening skills, as well as developing their writing skills in a variety of ways.
