Class teacher Bev Lees, and Teaching assistants – Viv Halliwell, Ann Armstrong-Marshall, Kathryn Parker, Andy Fitzman and Liam Hodkinson work closely as a team to support your child during the day. Sandra Thomas, our midday supervisor helps us at dinnertime.
The class has full and part time children attending, who have similar learning styles to each other, and interesting and exciting activities are planned, by all the team, across different subjects. The children have a FUN, ‘learning through sensory play’ based curriculum, with opportunities for 1-1 sessions or short small group times, both in the classroom and outdoors.
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.

This year we featured some incredible learning from the Robins class in our film based around the topic ‘All the Worlds a Stage’. Watch it below!
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.
