Ravens

General Information

The Ravens are a class of 9 children ranging from Year Four to Year Six. There are 4 adults supporting the class for learning. Elaine is the Class Teacher. Adam and Stacey are our full time Teaching Assistants in class. Liam and Kerry share a role across the week as Teaching Assistants with Kerry working Monday through Wednesday and Liam working Thursday and Friday.

On Tuesdays we all swim at Royton Baths. We leave school at 9:30am. All children will need a towel and swimming costume every Tuesday which will be returned home for washing weekly.

We have a PE lesson on Thursday after lunch. You can send in some trainers for your child if you want to.


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.
