Welcome to Kestrel Class!
A big welcome from Mrs Corcoran and Mrs Groves! We are very excited to be teaching your children this year.
For our topic this term we are going to be learning about the Anglo Saxons and considering questions like "Why did they invade Britain?", "What does archaelogical evidence such as that found at Sutton Hoo tell us about how they lived?" and "Was Alfred the Great really so great?". We will be writing a recount of an Anglo Saxon invasion, performing a scene from Beowulf and writing our own Anglo Saxon adventure story.
The children will be coming home soon with a brand new homework topic grid with lots of fun and interesting activities to choose to do at home. We have introduced a points system so the children can choose what interests them, as long as it adds up to 10 points! This will be in addition to quick maths and literacy tasks which will come home separately each week. Have fun!
Year 6 visited St Giles Primary in Hosted Keynes to take part in a Sport's Leadership training afternoon. They learnt some new playground games, explored how to adapt them for different year groups and developed their coaching and leadership skills. They are currently thinking about ways to introduce some of these new activities into the Warninglid Playground. Watch this space!
Kestrels have been practising their hockey skills this term; looking especially at the push pass and block tackle. We have had some fun, competitive games where the children have been able to show off their developing skills. Thank you to Callum for these great action shots!
Some websites to progress your learning, the fun way!
