WELCOME TO KESTRELS

           We are a Year 5 class and our teacher is Mrs Jasmine Pettitt 

Autumn 2 Class News

We have had an amazing term full of exciting learning. We have enjoyed learning about plant reproduction and even explored asexual reproduction by taking cuttings of plants, watching them develop roots and potting them in our classroom. We love caring for them and watching them grow.

In DT we have designed, made and evaluated a fairground ride (with lots of perseverance!). We are very proud of our hard work and enjoyed sharing our creations with our peers.

We have had a great term learning all about the Geography of East Anglia. We looked at a range of maps including topographical maps, ready to investigate the human and physical geography of East Anglia.

We are looking forward to celebrating the end of our learning about East Anglia and the Anglo-Saxons with a trip to Escot for an Anglo-Saxon day in the new year.  

 

 

Autumn 1 Class News          

Kestrels have had a fantastic start to the school year. As writers we have been authors of a tale of fear and an information text. We were inspired by Hansel and Gretel and the witch's house and then by the Anglo-Saxons. In maths, we have completed our place value unit and out addition and subtraction unit. We worked incredibly hard to develop our perseverance when tackling tricky problems and worked systematically when answering multi-step word problems.

In our history lessons, we have explored reasons for the Anglo-Saxons settling in Britain and the impact they had. We love learning about Sutton Hoo and found the burial chamber fascinating as it gave us more information about their achievements, society, culture and beliefs. We have worked hard as scientist and have discovered how different forces work. For example, we looked at how surface area affects an object as it falls, how the shape of something affects how it moves through the water and explored why it is important to carry out a test three times.

We are ready for lots more learning in term 2! 

 

Remote Learning

If your child is self-isolating because they are displaying symptoms of COVID-19 or they have tested positive for COVID-19, they can still access their learning from home, if they are well enough to do so. All remote learning will be emailed directly to you (it will no longer be uploaded on to the school website).

We appreciate that some children may be feeling unwell, and will therefore not be able to continue with their learning at home.

We hope you find your child's remote learning enjoyable and easy to follow. If you have any problems at all in accessing this learning, please do not hesitate to email your child’s class teacher; we are here to support and guide you. Please photograph and email your child's work to the class email address which is: kestrels@educ.somerset.gov.uk
