Welcome back! We've had an amazingly positive start to Year 6 in Kestrels class, and have already earned ourselves a marble for excellent classroom behaviour.
In Maths this half term we are starting with Place Value of numbers up to 100,000,000. Although this seems daunting, we're going to work really hard to use a growth mindset within lessons and give everything a go.
In English we are focussing on Charles Dickens and really enjoyed going on a 'scavenger hunt' for facts about him using the internet and books. We will be using this information to write a biography about him.
This links with our Topic for this term which will be 'The Victorian Era: Dark Age or Golden Age?' We've already started to investigate different Victorian pioneers, why they were important and how they're still influencing modern life!
Since coming back to school, Kestrels have settled into school really easily and are excited to get going with their learning! Both Mrs Mears and Mrs Thambipillai are extremely proud of each and every one of them!
