Kingfisher Class

Year 2 / 3 - 2020 - 2021
Class Teacher: Mrs Felton
Welcome to Kingfisher webpage

Remote learning will be delivered via Seesaw. This will be in line with our Remote Learning Policy which has been sent to parents/carers previously.

This term our project is London.

We will be using the book ‘Coming to England’ by Floella Benjamin as a stimulus to study London. The children will learn about some of the famous London landmarks and we will be looking at similarities and differences between London and where we live. We will also be learning about the Great Plague of London, making links with the Covid-19 pandemic.

Water Bottles - You should have a named water bottle in class so you can drink during class time. Please only fill your bottle with water rather than juice etc.

PE - This term will be on a Monday and we shall be having a coach from Shrewsbury Town. Please come to school in your PE kit. If the weather turns colder then track suit bottoms and a school sweat shirt can be worn.

Homework – Homework will be put on the website on a Friday to be completed at home. It will generally consist of reading, spelling and a maths task.

BBC Symphony Orchestra Workshop

Last Tuesday, we enjoyed a fantastic Zoom workshop with Michael Atkinson - a cellist from the BBC Symphony Orchestra. He introduced us to the 'Mambo' from Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story. We practised several different rhythms using body percussion and then put them together to create our own 'Mambo'! It was a lot of fun. Pictures to follow soon!
