 Welcome to Kestrels!


We are all settled back in after the long summer break and have already started our new topics. We are enjoying our English learning through our exciting new film literacy project and have got off to a flying start with our space mission instant recall facts (SMIRFs) in maths. We have already made bread as part of DT and will be attempting lots of other tasty dishes over the coming half-term. We shall be using a time line to place events we have found out about in our topic work and learning how to use sources of evidence to help us answer questions. 


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.
