Stretham Community Primary School


Kestrel Class

Week beginning 13/09/21

Our flight of kestrels split into two groups at the start of the week, with the Year 6s going on a trip! On this trip they did a range of activities from high ropes courses, to beach activities, to knife carving (photos in the gallery section of the website). Whilst they were away, the Year 5s had a great time researching about Egypt, using chalk in art and taking part in a forest skills session. Finally, when the two halves of the class reunited for Thursday and Friday, we created double page spreads of the Iroquois creation story in English, continued with our hockey in PE, and looked at the River Indus in geography.

Week beginning 6/09/21

Kestrel Class have been flying through their learning this week! We have been looking at place value in maths, creating exciting sentences and writing story openings in English, and then a whole range of other activities in the afternoons. Children particularly enjoyed a lesson on code breaking and ciphers in computing, starting a unit of work on zentangles in maths, and refining their dribbling skills in hockey!

The topics year 5 children will cover this year

Over the first two days, Kestrel class have settled in well and enjoyed getting to know one another! We have done a recap of times tables and place value in maths, started to write a letter based on the book 'Dear Teacher' in English, and completed various PE, PSHE and art activities in the afternoons. Here are some children making their backgrounds for the art project we have been doing.
