 Welcome to Kestrels!


We are all settled back in after the Christmas break and have already started our new topics. We are continuing to enjoy our English learning through our exciting new film literacy project and are progressing through the planets for our space mission instant recall facts (SMIRFs) in maths. We are making super-hero capes to send to the 'We are Super-Heros' charity who donate them to children in poorer countries, as every child deserves to feel like a super-hero. We shall be learning all about electricity in our topic work and designing our own mobile phone app in computing. 


For further details of what we will be learning this term, please refer to the Curriculum Newsletter, which is found on the Curriculum page, in the About Us section.


Please continue to practise your SMIRFs at home for 10 minutes a day, as you will become more proficient in your maths learning, once you have mastered your SMIRFs.

The following websites are extremely useful for developing your computational thinking. Please click on the relevant image to be taken to that website:

KS2 travelled back in time to WW2 where they experienced what life would have been like during and after the war. They saw air raid shelters, military tanks and saw machinery from the army. We walked through a make believe blitz attack that had the real air siren. We walked through a town center where there was different shops; a lot of them were rationing shops or make do and mend shops but we recognised the brands such as Bisto and Typoo. There was also a big room with loads of newspapers in so we could see what the headlines were during the war.
