Welcome to Kestrels!


Our class teacher is Mrs Fahey.



This spring term we have the geography topic of Rivers. This is a really exciting and enjoyable topic that will take Kestrels around the world as they study rivers both at home and abroad. We will be making our own models of rivers to understand the journey from source to mouth and why rivers are so important to our communities. Finally we will be looking at the risks that rivers bring when flooding occurs. 



This spring term we will be exploring fractions, measurements and shape.



Using our rivers topic, in English we will be looking at recounts in the form of a diary and writing a shared narrative. 



This spring term our unit on ‘states of matter’ takes children through six lessons where they learn how to: compare and group materials together, according to whether they are solids, liquids or gases; observe that some materials change state when they are heated or cooled, and measure or research the temperature at which this happens in degrees Celsius (°C); and finally, identify the part played by evaporation and condensation in the water cycle and associate the rate of evaporation with temperature. 



In RE we will be looking at the Christian theological topic of Salvation.  


PE Days

Our PE days are Mondays and Wednesday. Children need to come into school in their PE uniform (white polo shirt, school jumper and dark joggers or short).


Class book

Our class book for spring 2 is 'Song of the River' by Gill Lewis.
