Learn to let your light shine

Kingfisher Class 

Welcome to the Kingfisher Class!

The Kingfisher staff team welcome all Kingfishers to their new class. We will get off to a flying start!

In Kingfishers, we are all one big, friendly team. We work together to make sure that everyone has friends to play with and we always help each other to do our very do our very best.  We understand that making mistakes helps us to improve and that we are all on one big learning journey together; each encouraging one another to let our lights shine!

Things Kingfisher Families need to know:


Every child has access to two types of book; a 'reading for pleasure book' and a 'learning to read' book. .

All books will be changed on a Monday. We would love every child to read at least three times per week at home, preferably more! Please do encourage your child to read their 'learning to read' book to you, as much as possible. The more practise a child gets, the more confident a reader they become. Being a good reader and enjoying books allows children to fly academically. It is hugely important. Please also remember that the ‘reading for pleasure’ book is for an adult to read to a child and discuss with them. This promotes an overall enjoyment of reading.  Please sign your child’s reading record to tell us they have read.


PE will be twice a week on Wednesdays and Thursdays. On a PE day, please send your child in outdoor PE kit (black shorts in warm weather or black or grey joggers/leggings in cooler weather, white T-shirt or polo shirt and school hoodie.). If your child has earrings, please ensure that either they don’t wear them on a PE day or that they are covered up with micropore tape. If you don’t have any tape, we can provide this in school. Please also make sure that long hair is tied up.


Our happy Kingfisher staff team comprises of:

Mrs. Try- Class Teacher

Mrs Sanders- Teaching Assistant (all day)

We  are extremely keen to work with you to make this a fantastic year for your child. If you have any questions, queries or concerns please do not hesitate to let us know. We are always very happy to hear from you. 

Most importantly, in Kingfishers, you must always be ready to smile, be kind to others and  have fun with your learning!
