Welcome to Kestrel Class!


In Term 5, we have been reading a text called Beatrice's Goat. We have learnt about life in Africa, which has linked to other areas of the curriculum such as learning about how the Earth will cope (thinking about the natural resources available to us, in geography). In PSHE, we have been learning about managing money. The highlight of our term was Humanities Day where we traveled to different countries to learn about other places, cultures, languages and history. We each filled in a Passport as we moved across different continents.
