Peacocks

General Information

The Peacocks are a mixed age Key Stage 2 class. The Teacher, Charlotte Williams alongside the Teaching Assistant, Rachel Mitchell support your child in class. The classroom is set up to foster concentration and focus and as such is designed to be distraction free. Children in the Peacocks have opportunities to work in small groups, one-to-one and as part of a whole class. When teaching and learning requires more focus or when a new skill is being taught, the children may work one-to-one with an adult, for example in focused reading sessions. When working one-to-one the children work in the quiet work room where distractions and noise are at a minimum. During the course of the week the children will also be given opportunities to work independently.


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.
