Flamingos

General Information

The Flamingos’ class is based in Red hub and consists of 7 Key Stage 2 pupils. We use a variety of learning activities including one to one, small group and whole class activities, to support the children’s learning. We follow the school’s Total Communication approach – using Signalong, symbols and spoken language.

The class teacher is Naomi Morris, who along with teaching assistants Angela Mullington (Mon & Tues), Nicola Hamnett (Wed – Fri) and Helen Thomas all work closely together to support your child throughout the day.

The children are encouraged to be as independent as they possibly can be, and to take responsibility for meeting their personal care needs. They are also encouraged to be considerate and helpful to their classmates, and to support one another.


Sign of the Week

At Kingfisher we use Signalong as a part of a Total Communication Approach, we are constantly using core vocabulary with the children to support their language development and then through each of our topics we introduce new signs and language, which extends their vocabulary further. We also have two “Signs of the Week” which helps maintain and extend key knowledge and skills of everyday vocabulary.

Each half term we will be creating a short video showcasing and demonstrating our ‘Signs of the Week’ for the current term so that you can learn the signs and further this learning at home.

Lunchtime

If your child has a school dinner, the school menus can be accessed by clicking here. For children who bring a packed lunch, please remember to provide healthy and balanced options. We are a Healthy School and will be focussing on healthy eating and how children can make healthy lifestyle choices.
