'Be Kind, Work Hard'

Welcome to Kestrels Class - Year 6

Mrs Cooper, Mrs Lewis, Mrs Ferreira and Miss Savage

Summer Term 2022

Welcome to the last term of primary school. This is a really special time for both pupils and teachers in Year 6. Not only will the children be taking their SATs (9th to 12th May), finding out about their new schools and meeting some of the pupils, we've also got a lot of learning to do too!

 

We would like to welcome Mrs Cooper to the Kestrels Team - she is covering Mrs Greenard's maternity leave. We hope she will be really happy teaching at our wonderful school. 

 

The first few weeks of term will be concentrating of being fully prepared for the end of KS2 tests. The children in both Kestrels and Kingfishers have done brilliantly this year and we know they are going to do their very best!

 

Once the SATs are over, we have so many amazing things to do: trips, including a local walk to look at Bedford's bridges; a visit to The Place Theatre to take part in a Shakespeare Workshop based on Twelfth Night; The End of Year Six Trip (more information to follow) plus Enterprise Fortnight and then a STEM project with one of the local secondary schools. Honestly, it is going to be busy!

 

We will be reading 'Floodlands'  by Marcus Sedgwick, which is a children's fantasy novel. Whilst it is our shortest novel so far, it is the most challenging of topics. We hope the children are going to love it as much as we do!

 

We will keep you up-to-date with everything. If you have any concerns or just want to have a question answered, please don't hesitate to catch us on the gate or ring the school office.

 

Our PE days are Monday and Friday

Look at what we are learning in Y6 this year!
