Welcome to Kingfishers We are a kind and inquisitive group of year 1 children, who love to be busy investigating and learning a variety of new things! We regularly discuss and emulate the behaviours of being a ‘kind kingfisher’; which links to our school values.
Our learning this year will include our whole school project of ‘United’, where we will discover and explore how we can make a difference to the world we live in by coming together.
Our other projects this year include, ‘what’s the problem’; where we use Tales Toolkit to explore different stories, as well as looking at letter writing; focusing on punctuation. We also fill focus on science, DT and computing in our project ‘what’s the solution?’ inspecting and investigating our computing programme ‘Purple Mash’. Here in Kingfishers at St Mary’s, we strive hand in hand to thrive and be independent, curious learners – come back to see what we’ve been discovering!
Our Teacher: Miss Atkin I am excited to be a part of St Mary’s this year, teaching Kingfishers Class and working closely with all the children in adults in Early Years and Year 2. There is no doubt that I am joining a school with a strong community.
I come from a very artistic and expressive background, studying art at Southampton Solent University to then moving to Banbury to complete my teacher training through a hands-on approach at another local school. I love being around children and watching them thrive; feeling happy, safe and having the best possible opportunities to learn.
I love being creative and enjoy making and designing new things for the classroom and at home. I’m excited about our creative project ‘Mix it Up’ and am looking forward to the opportunity to create an exhibit for our friends and family to visit.
I enjoy watching new films, being part of a choir, long walks, visiting new places and spending time with family and friends.
My favourite book is Alice in Wonderland by Lewis Carol, but I love Roald Dahl too.
My favourite animals are Polar Bears and I’m looking forward to our project ‘United!’ where we can explore climate change and its impact on polar wildlife.
