Kestrels (Lower KS2)

Latest News

What have we been up to?

We would like to introduce you to  some of our amazing dragons and the creative caves they live in  ...

They have starred in the stories we have been writing this term and have really helped us create some amazing, adventurous and magical stories.


Curriculum Information

In Kestrel class we are learning about The Stone Age

We are reading books like Ug by Raymond Briggs and Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura .  These stories will help us on our journey to a greater understanding of the stone age through Play scripts, creative writing, newspaper reports and maybe even some persuasive arguments  We will be creating our own Stonehenge and learning about its history.

Our shape and measure Maths work will also be linked to the stone age as we look at the shapes of Stonehenge and measurements

We are also very excited to be visiting Stonehenge later in the year which will bring this topic to life.
