Kestrels – Y5/Y6

Home learning from 23rd March 2020

Whilst we are all at home, I will be updating this page with different home learning ideas.

Attached is the suggested timetable. 

The most important thing is for you to stay active doing things that you enjoy - so take the opportunity to direct your learning any way you wish as long as you are practising your skills in all the different areas of learning!
Learning projects and ideas
Lots of science resources and ideas.

Free apps to download

If you have any favourite learning apps please let me know via Seesaw so we can share with the class.


Google Earth/Expeditions – made by Google, you can travel anywhere in the world and explore in virtual reality. They often have lots of facts linked to the places you travel too as well.


Kahoot – There are a lot of quizzes on all subjects. If you have more than one device, you can do it as a group and challenge each other but you would need a ‘host’ device as well as the ones you are playing the quiz with.


DuoLingo – an interactive way of learning languages. If you have headphones available then children will be able to immerse themselves fully.


Animal Safari AR – you put an animal in front of you in the room! Explore what the animal looks like, and then research habitats/facts online! 

Welcome to Kestrel Class!



A big welcome from Mrs Corcoran.  I am really enjoying teaching your children this year.


Our new topic for the Spring term will be The Frozen Kingdom, where the children will immerse themselves in everything polar - from looking at the characteristis of our polar regions in Geography, reading about people who have survived arctic conditions and meeting a polar bear mum and her cubs in literacy, through to building shelters and much more! 

Curriculum Map Spring 2019

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 ask that the children spend the equivalent of 1 hour for each 4 points, spread out over the term.  This is a chance for the children to really show off what they have learnt, or explore an area they are particularly interested in. Good luck!  This will be in addition to quick maths and literacy tasks which will come home separately each week.  

Some websites to progress your learning, the fun way!
