Ospreys

General Information

The teacher, Carrie Ball, along with teaching assistants, Jill Lomax, Cheryl Crosby, Chelsea Beards and Katie Harris will work closely together to support your child throughout the day. Margaret Stanley is our Midday supervisor and she works with the Ospreys at lunchtimes and helps on Educational Visits.

The class is a mixed group of Key Stage 1 and 2 children who have similar learning styles to one another. Within the class, all the children follow programmes of work designed to meet their individual needs, studying across the full range of curriculum subjects, and delivered through 1-to-1, small group and class activities.

The children are encouraged to be as independent as they possibly can be and also to interact with their classmates and adults that they may work with.


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.
