Welcome back to a new term Clever Kestrels!
We had a fantastic first term together, learning all about the Blitzed Brits, and you have produced some outstanding work in your cross-curricular topic folders. Your Homework projects have also been brilliant, with so many creative takes on the briefs we’ve set. Well done! Year 5 have represented us impeccably at your Science workshops at Benton Park and Year 6 have been brilliant role-models for their Foundation Buddies – helping them to settle-in to our school fantastically. We are very proud of you all!
So now we are getting to grips with our new topic, Vicious Vikings. This is another great history topic where we will be learning all about how the Vikings invaded Saxon England, and how they lived once they settled here! We have another brilliant Moveable Feast drama workshop to experience and a trip to Leeds Art Gallery to get our creative juices flowing.
In addition, we have our annual Inter-house rugby competition and cross-country race, where we will be hoping to beat our scores from last year…Fingers crossed! If we are good, the Easter Bunny may even pay us a visit before the end of term – will you be able to hunt-out your egg?!
In our final term together we will be splashing through the topic of Creeping Coasts, where we will take in a fantastic, whole-key stage trip to Filey. We will investigate how and why our coastline is changing; what it’s like to live in a coastal location; and also how animals have adapted to living in our oceans.
Another great highlight is our end of year performance, “Edith’s Wartime Scrapbook” which promises to be another sell-out show! By this point, we will be getting our wonderful Year 6s ready for the big step-up to secondary school, and will finally send them off with an emotional trip down memory lane, at our Leavers Concert.
There is so much more to look forward to over the couple of terms. Here’s to a fantastic spring and summer; let’s work hard and play hard in Kestrel Class!

- To help develop ideas for our newspaper report writing, Kestrel class have been doing a spot of journalistic interviewing this week, with some rather fiery exchanges of opinion!
- What a fantastic effort all of Kestrel class made with their most recent homework project. We have enjoyed presenting and explaining them to the class, and most of all playing them with each other. A lovely way to end our half term.
- After weeks of hard work, Kestrel class finally pulled together and performed their street dance routines this week in PE. It goes to show even the most reluctant dancers can find their groove with enough practice! Well done everyone!
- UKS2 researched how the Vikings preserved their food. We even had a taste test of some “delicious” examples, such as fermented meat, smoked fish and pickled eggs! Kestrel classroom is still rather fragrant!
- Kestrel year 5's have retold the story of Beowulf in drama.
