Welcome to Kestrel Crew
We are in Year 4 and 5. Our teacher is Mrs Harris and our teaching assistants are Miss Sperring, Mrs Lake and Mrs Faulkner. We hope you enjoy sharing our learning.
Homework for this week:
North America - who and what lives there and why?
This term we will be learning all about the continent of North America. We will use our geography skills to find out about where it is, what countries and cities are there and the human and physical features within them. We will also be finding out about the wildlife there, learning about classification, food chains as well as teeth and digestion in humans and different animals.
Ancient Achievements - Wow launch day : 23rd September 2020
We had a great day kicking off our learning about ancient civilisations. Lots of us dressed up as ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Chinese and Incas. We researched facts about the different civilisations, designed masks, played ancients 'top trumps' and even drew our own pictures for a 'Standard of St Andrew's' after exploring the Sumerian artefact the Standard of Ur. We now have lots of questions ready for our learning ahead and had lots of fun!
Times tables are SO important to maths, we have been working very hard on them this year and at the end of the year the Year 4 children in our crew will be taking the National Multiplication Tables check. TT Rockstars is a great way to practice tables and get more confident. Here are some other places to play and practice if you need them:
