Welcome to Kestrel Class!
Welcome to Kestrel Class,
I am really excited to be teaching Years 3 and 4. We have lots of exciting plans for this year. Keep a lookout on our class page for photos, highlights of the year and newsletters.
Our history topic this term is the Victorians. We studied William Morris' wallpaper designs and then transformed our classroom into a Victorian factory printing our own wallpaper inspired by nature.
Meanwhile in our music lessons we have been learning to play xylophones, shakers and drums to explore rhythm and pitch singing Che Che Koolay.
On a dull Friday in November The Big Write came to Kestrel Class. WOW just look at that concentration! Every child was a superhero writer. Well done.
A group of children who haven't yet caught the reading bug were lucky enough to be invited to Waterstone's in Wells to choose some books. This visit was made possible by the Wells Festival of Literature who run a number of projects with schools to promote a love of reading. We would like to say a big thank you to them and to Waterstone's in Wells.
All the children in Kestrel Class took part in a one day Pupil First Aid Course run by St. John's Ambulance. They learnt many skills which will be useful in their wider lives.
What a fantastic morning we had at The Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury. We learnt such a lot and really enjoyed making drop scones on the kitchen range and rag-rugging.
