Kestrel Class Complete a Zumbathon!
To raise money for our school swimming pool, Kestrel Class took part in a 30 minute Zumbathon that actually spilled into an 45 minute long dance party! 
Maths Measuring Workshop Part 2!
Kestrel Class now focused on practically measuring different capacities and mass using scales and measuring jugs.
Maths Measuring Workshop!
To consolidate our learning on measurements and distance, Kestrel Class were given numerous distances around the school to measure, including the length of the school field!
Kestrel Class JTAs Deliver an Assembly!
We were very proud of our 6 Year 5 Junior Travel Ambassadors who delivered a fantastic assembly promoting 'Bike to School Week'. They spoke clearly and confidently and handled questions from the captive audience very well! 
Open Air Theatre time with Kestrel Class!
To extend and consolidate our learning about Hinduism in RE, Kestrel Class performed several traditional religious stories based around some of the main Hindu deities.
Reading Buddies
I was really proud of how Kestrel Class buddied up with Swift Class and helped instil in them a love of reading! They took their role very seriously and were fantastic and engaging role models.
Nature Walk
Kestrel Class enjoyed an observational nature walk in preparation for their personification poems!
