Mrs Grimbaldeston teaches the Kestrels on Mondays, and Mrs Arbuthnott will be teaching the Kestrels from Tuesday-Friday.
In Literacy we’ll be working on punctuation, grammar and spelling in all our work, we’ll be working on non chronological writing, creating imaginative texts and guided reading. We’ll also be debating, researching and using dictionaries to support not only spelling but also developing our vocabularies.
In Maths we will be continuing to develop our understanding of column addition and subtraction, using multiplication and division to solve problems and we will be undertaking a block of work on word problems. We will continue to look at shape, space and measure and work on time.
Our science work will focus on ‘Sound’ this term – this will involve practical investigations and testing our hypotheses. We will be working on French in MFL and focusing on developing our vocabularies, we’ll be exploring clay and mark-making in art as well as colour and design through paint, drawing and textiles. Our PSHE this half term covers Safer Lifestyles, following the Cambridgeshire PSHE materials and we’ll also be working on developing our music skills through the ocarina and percussion. Our PE sessions will include a tennis coaching session with Mrs Wisbey from HSSP and developing our ball skills and athletics. We have PE on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so please could your Kestrel have their kit in school on those days.
