Welcome to Kestrel Class
With Miss Seaton, 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.
Last half term our topic was based on the Stone Age. We looked at cave paintings, tools they would have used and studied the story Stone Age boy by Satoshi Kitamura. In Science we have been studying different types of rock and soils. Work coming soon!
Our Topic this half term is to finish Stone Age to Iron Age and then to start Ancient Egypt. We will start by looking at a map of Ancient Egypt, a timeline and then studying their Gods and Goddesses. Our Art will also be based on this topic, starting with Scarab Beetle prints. In Science we will be learning about light which we will link to the festival Diwali.
Spellings will be set on Monday, please practice these at home ready for a spelling quiz the following week.
One piece of Mathematics or English set alternate Wednesdays.
Children should be reading everyday. If they are having Read, Write Inc lessons they will take home two books a week based on their class book and the other days they can choose any books for reading for pleasure. If your child has finished Read, Write Inc then they will take home a book band book. Please write in their yellow reading records after you have read with your child.
