Welcome to Kestrel Class
With Mrs Soares, Mrs Fuller, Mrs Moffatt and Miss Golding
At the start of the year we wrote our class charter, a set of rules we all agree to keep us happy and safe at school.
In the Spring term we studied Ancient Egypt in art and history. In science we looked at different forces and how they can make things move. We studied a range of poems in English and performed them to the class. We wrote in the style of some of the poets we studied. In maths we covered time, fractions and multiplications.
This half term we are continuing learning about our local area in Geography, incorporating some elements of local history. In art we will be looking at colour: mixing colours and making tints and tones. We will be looking at artists associated with colour including Matisse, Kadinsky and Sonia Delaunay. We will be studying 'The Firework Makers Daughter' by Phillip Pullman in English. In maths we will be continuing to develop our strategies to solve addition and subtraction and within multiplication and division. Through science, we will be studying plants, incorporating our new garden plot. Within PSHE we will be starting our Relationships topic.
