Years 5 and 6
The Kestrels are aged 9-11 and are taught by Mrs Hunter. The class is supported by Mrs South. As the oldest children in the school, they are independent, mature learners who have more responsibilities in the school.
PE is on Thursdays and Fridays. Children should come into school in their PE kit on these days.
Children are expected to read every night for 10-20 minutes. They should record what they have read using Seesaw and complete the daily activities for their homework.
Spellings are taught in class, looking carefully at spelling patterns, how words can be broken into syllables to aid spelling and word/spelling associations. No spelling lists will be taken home. There will be no weekly spelling tests.
Ms O'Beney teaches the children French and Music on Thursday mornings and PE is taught by CSF on Thursdays too.
