Kingfishers Daily News - Read me every day! Mr Dawe

Today's News 1.3.21 
 
Good morning Kingfishers,
 
It's March today. Hurray! Spring really is almost here. Wasn't the weather beautiful this weekend? I spent Saturday building in the garden and Sunday at the allotment. Early potatoes are now planted! Fingers crossed we don't get any hard frosts now.
 
We'll discuss today's learning at this morning's Zoom but we are starting new units of work in English and maths today. In English we begin work on a non-fiction unit called 'Big Blue Whale' while in maths, we begin a two week unit on geometry - specifically the properties of 2D and 3D shapes. This afternoon, why not take a virtual tour of the Natural History Museum?! This week's phonics revised the 'ew' sound and the different ways it can be spelled. 
 
World Book Day (Thursday 4th March)
 
Only a few more days until World Book Day!  There are still plenty of ways to get involved in the World Book Day celebrations. Look at the 'World Book Day 2021' page on the Home Learning Section of the website to find out more. 
 
Back to School Countdown!
 
 There are just 5 school days of home learning left including today.  If you haven't yet, do have a look at the leaflet below on 'The Return to School'. If your child is feeling anxious about it, I'd be grateful if you would let me know ahead of next week.
 
Reflex Maths and Spelling Shed
 
Remember to get your green light on Reflex and practise this week's spellings on Spelling Shed.
