Welcome to Term 3 with Red Kites. After all the excitement of Christmas and New Year, it's back to school with renewed energy to tackle the term ahead.
This term we will be looking at the impact the Vikings had, Judaism and learning to speak some Spanish. In DT, we are attempting to make an electronic game using our knowledge of circuits, switches and buzzers. If you could save cereal boxes for us, we would be very grateful.
There is a service at St. John's church on 12th January for year 6. We would love to see you there.
We hope that this term will be as successful and enjoyable as terms 1 and 2. Keep checking the web site for updates.
Welcome to Red Kites Class Page.
We have had a fantastic start to this term and are sure the rest of this year will be just as good.
In English, we are reading, and working on, the book, Floodland by Marcus Sedgwick. The children are really enjoying the story, I'm sure you've heard all about it already!
In Maths, we are revising place value and how to add decimals. Next will be subtraction!
Topics this term are continents in Geography and Light in Science.
In RE we are studying prayer. This week we also have the opportunity to visit St. Georges for a workshop.
The children have settled in really well and have already produced some incredible work. Keep checking this page for regular updates.
What a really amazing few weeks we've had.
Firstly, the children really enjoyed our visit to St. Georges School. There were different, thought- provoking activities, that tied in with our own school values. Although, we were only there for an hour, it gave the children the opportunity to think about their hopes for the future and the future of others.
Please have a look through the photographs below.
We have also been on a fantastic visit (thank you, Miss Wall!) to the Marlowe theatre in Canterbury to see Horrible Histories Groovy Greeks.
Our next topic is the ancient Greeks, so this was a terrific introduction to some of the main stories of that time period, and information about the more famous city states. In the interval, everyone was asked to wear 3-d glasses so we could join Theseus on his journey through the labyrinth and King Leonidas at Thermopylae. There was even an X factor- like completion between the Greek gods at the end!
There was only a cast of four playing many different parts; they were fantastic!
The children would recommend a visit if you get the chance.
Lastly, a big thank you to all the parents who attended our class assembly and our coffee afternoon. It was really lovely to see so many of you there. A huge well done to Millie and Savannah who wrote the script for our assembly and put together the power point. Thank you both.
A big thank you, too, to the parents that contributed to our coffee afternoon.
Don't forget we have a parents evening coming up soon, hopefully we'll see lots of you then.
Hi, Millie and Savannah here. We will be doing regular updates on the website now, Mrs Rowden and Mrs Monkhouse are far too busy.
Mr Bray is doing really well, no news as yet on his return date but we are lucky to have Mrs Monkhouse to help.
Since we last updated the website we have had Star Wars science week. We made an Anglo Saxon village that was invaded by aliens and we made some awesome light sabers.
In literacy we have been extremely lucky in having Mrs Lowden as our teacher. We have finished three more books.
