In Term 6, 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 Mini-beasts as well as the Beach and sea.
Year 1 are learning about 'Princes Park'- 'What is it like living in Princes Park?'
Year 2 are learning about 'Castles'- 'Why were castles built?'
Year 3 are learning about 'Australia'- 'Is everywhere the same as the UK?'
Year 4 are learning about 'Rivers'- 'Why do we call our towns 'The Medway Towns?'
Year 5 are learning about 'The Environment'- 'What environmental issues are affecting us?'
Year 6 are learning about 'Britain since 1930'- 'How did Chatham and the Medway Towns help to 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.
HERE IS OUR VISION FOR KINGFISHER
At Kingfisher we pride ourselves on encouraging children to enjoy learning in a safe and caring environment. Kingfisher is a place where new activities can be attempted without fear of failure and where ambition is encouraged. In this supportive environment every pupil is able to fulfil their potential.
