Autumn term

Kestrels have plenty to look forward to as we start the autumn term! 

We will blast off into outer space with this exciting and informative cross-curricular 'Earth and Space' topic. We will learn about the solar system, find out about the history of space exploration, explore the lives of astronauts and use your creativity to create artwork, models and music.  For our Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) project, we will plan, design, and make rockets.  We will have fun testing our ideas during our rocket-launching competition.

After half term, we will be introduced to the wilder side of the world with our topic - 'Extreme Earth'. We will have the joy of learning all about the Earth's extremes, from raging tropical storms to violent erupting volcanoes to terrifying towering tsunamis. We will also explore how these extremes affect people, communities and landscapes through a series of informative and thought-provoking lessons. With this topic we will have the opportunity to look at the world in which we live in a new awe-inspiring light.

PE days will be on a Wednesday and a Friday, please ensure kit is brought in on these days. We are lucky enough to also have Mrs McIntosh and Mrs Vosper join us in class. Please also look at the Meet the Teacher handout for further information about this year.



Kestrels have been hard at work this term (see our photo albums to see some of our work) and their homework projects have been a delight to see. Today (10.10.19) Nuno brought in his rocket which he made with his dad. The class had a wonderful time counting down the rocket to see it take off! Watch below to see it.
