The Great Fire of London

September 22nd, 2017

It’s been a busy week!  We have been historians and have learnt lots of facts about the Great Fire of London.  Today we were reporters and eye-witnesses and took turns to interview each other!

The children’s Share and Learn (home learning) has a variety of activities for the children to do at home.  Lore brought in his Fire of London picture that he made at home to share with the class – happy home learning everybody!

We started our Fire topic making fires in the learning garden and a visit from the fire engine!  We wrote amazing poems using nouns and adjectives and had to learn them.  We performed them in front of the class.  Ms McKenzie was very proud!

Superhero Share and Learn

The Kestrel’s Share and Learn has been brilliant this term.  They have made jetpacks, cuffs, fruit kebabs, designed and made vehicles for their superheroes and found out about real life superheroes in history.  Thanks Mums and Dads!

Sporty Kestrels

March 28th, 2017

We’ve had a week of sport – archery, a Multiskills Festival and rehearsals for our dance performance.  Archery was fun and everybody had a go!  It was a lot harder than first thought!  The Y2s went to SWR  on Tuesday to join lots of other Y2s from different schools to take part in a fun Multiskill Sports afternoon.  The Y1s are going next week.

Our Harry Potter World Book Day

March 3rd, 2017

We had a wonderful World Book Day dressed as characters from Harry Potter.  It was a magical day – the children took part in Care of Magical Creatures lessons ( the children held strange insects and a snake!), potion lessons, quidditch, Arithmancy and wand making in the school garden.  They visited Fouris and Blotts bookshop and chose a book to take home and tasted butterbeer.


February 24th, 2017

We started our topic by creating our own superheroes.  We have written some fantastic descriptions and drawn brilliant pictures, as well as creating a superhero city skyline.  Don’t forget to check the website for an overview of our topic and our share and learn menu – happy learning!
