Welcome to Kestrel class 2019-2020.

This is going to be a very exciting year and this page will show many highlights of our learning adventures.

Autumn term - curriculum newsletter

Maths homework

(11.11.19)

This week, we would like you to look for maths examples where you live. This could be, for example, a bus timetable or shapes on buildings. Please talk to your parent/carer about what you have found. If you would like to take any photos and email them through to the school office, then please do so. 

 

Topic homework

This week we are continuing with our Tudor topic. Could you tell someone who is looking after you all about the Battle of Bosworth?

We very much look forward to hearing how much your adult enjoyed this!
