In Term 2, children at Kingfisher will begin their new learning topics. Here is a brief overview of each topic split into the different year groups:
Foundation Stage are learning about ' Guy Fawkes as well as the different aspects of Christmas'
Year 1 are learning about 'Toys'- 'What toys did you play with when you were younger?'
Year 2 are learning about 'Famous Events'- 'How do we know about the Great Fire of London?'
Year 3 are continuing to learn about 'Invaders and Settlers'- 'Why do people come to Chatham?'
Year 4 are continuing to learn about 'The Tudors'- 'Who were the winners and losers in Tudor times?'
Year 5 are continuing to learn about 'The Victorians in the local area'- 'Why is Charles Dickens important to Medway?'
Year 6 are continuing to learn about 'Survival'- 'What does it take to be a survivor?'
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.
