Welcome back to a new term Clever Kestrels!
We have had a fantastic first full week together, getting to grips with new routines… and each other! Year 5 have made a great start to the year, diving into our new topic of Rotten Romans. Year 6 have now (almost) recovered from their Robin Wood residential, and are getting ready to take on their responsibilities around school in their new job roles. Next week they will be meeting their Foundation Buddies and helping them to settle into our wonderful school J
This year promises to be another exciting adventure through our other topics of Watery Worlds and Groovy Greeks, with visits from Moveable Feasts Drama Company, and visits to the Art Gallery, Linton and Burnsall in the dales, not to mention some explosive science workshops at Benton Park for Year 5!
In addition, we have our annual Inter-house football, rugby, cycling and quiz competitions, and the legendary cross-country race, where we will be hoping to beat our scores from last year…Fingers crossed! If we are good, Santa and the Easter Bunny may even pay us a visit this year – will you be able to hunt-out your egg?!
Another great highlight to look forward to is our end of year performance, “Gold ” which promises to be another groovy Greek 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 to look forward to over the next year. Here’s to a fantastic autumn, spring and summer; let’s work hard and play hard in Kestrel Class!

- Hi there. Firstly, if your child is a Kestrel Year 5, then please ignore this message! The messaging facility doesn't allow me to separate the two year groups, and this is regarding Robin Wood.
- Thank you Kestrels for such a lovely half term - it's been a bit of a blur and we have certainly packed a lot in.
- We have started our science work on Electricity and Circuits this week and enjoyed drawing circuit diagrams and experimenting with different electrical components, to create a variety of lights, sounds and movements.
