Welcome to Kingfishers!

Kingfishers is our year 3 class, taught by Miss Joseph.

We enjoy a creative approach to the curriculum where all of the children’s needs are catered for. Our National Curriculum subjects are linked to one area of study. This is closely linked to Forest School and Outdoor Learning sessions.

In Kingfishers class children continue to develop the skill of working independently and children are encouraged to find things out for themselves and to challenge and extend their ideas.

The children learn through high quality classroom based activities. We link our learning objectives to our termly themes and the children immerse themselves in their learning.

Our Spring term topic is Sow the Seeds, our topic this term is science based and will incorporate foundation subjects.
