Manor Fields Primary School

Kingfisher 1  

Welcome to the Kingfisher 1 class page. We are committed to ensuring that every child is safe, healthy and happy and that they have the confidence, skills and opportunities to contribute and achieve.

Here in the Complex Needs Resource Base, we believe that every child deserves the best possible start to their education and we foster an enthusiasm for learning that aims to provide a solid foundation for our children. It supports them while they learn with us and as they move on through the school community and beyond.

Kingfisher 1 class is one of two classes that make up the Complex Needs Resource Base; we are a mini community within the wider community of our school. We help the children to develop a confident voice and to be kind and help them to 'dream big' and to achieve their potential.

Our children are encouraged to be independent with morning routines, such as hanging up their coats and sorting their bags, established quickly. We encourage the children to take responsibility for as many things as they can and aspire for them to be as independent as is possible. We foster resilience and confidence and adapt and scaffold our learning opportunities to ensure all of our children can realise successes within their learning.

We enjoy positive integration with our peers in mainstream classes throughout the school day and we are  joyful contributors to our school.

Mrs Fisher is the class teacher and Mrs Romano. Mrs Savage and Miss Bunce are the teaching assistants.

We are ably supported once a week by a speech and language therapist, an occupational therapist, a sports coach and an art teacher.

Please also check the Mainstream class pages for details of National testing which takes place for the year group your child is in. All National tests have adaptive access for children with special educational needs. Please talk to the class teacher or Senco, Mrs Cathryn Leeman, for more information.

Kingfisher class trip to the farm April 2023

Recently we had a chance to display some of our artwork at the Fiver Rivers Leisure Centre. We were so proud. In the autumn of 2023 we will have another chance to display our artwork. Look out for more information in September 2023.

We love to paint in Kingfisher class and to explore how the paint feels on our skin as well.

Our class text in the spring was Monkey Puzzle by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler. Can your child remember the story ?
