Welcome to Kestrels Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. Both myself, Mrs Adams (Class Teacher), Mr Sharpe (Class Higher Level Teaching Assistant), Mrs Spencer (SEN Support) and Mrs Perry (SEN Support) are pleased to welcome you to our class page. Please come and talk to us to discuss your children's celebrations, achievements and we are happy to answer any questions that you may have. Alternatively you can communicate to us through your child's home school link book and we will happily reply. Please find below a photo learning journey that shows some of the exciting activities we have been getting up to.

Sports Day!

Well done to all the children who participated in our Sports Day, it was a fantastic afternoon. Thank you for your cheering, encouragement and participation for those of you that took part in the adult races!

Our Locality Walk!
Science Week!
A Tudor experience fit for a king!
Our Egyptian Wow Day!

British Values Day.

The children enjoyed discussing and learning about the British values we have and spent the afternoon focusing on tolerance. All the children made a tolerance card and had fantastic ideas about different situations that would involve tolerance.

Our Trip to the Fitzwilliam Museum

Kestrels are learning to add and subtract with renaming.

To help support your child at home with their maths learning you could practise number bonds to 10 and number bonds to 20. smiley

Amazing Egyptians!

This week we have been learning about the mummification process and how canopic jars were used and why they were important. Beware it is a little gruesome! 

We loved having our grandparents in!

Thank you to all who could make it. Here's a sneak peak into our afternoon!

Exploring adventure stories through drama!

Over the next few weeks Year three will be learning about adventure stories and writing their own Egyptian adventure story! To kick start this unit we have read Flat Stanley The Great Egyptian Grave Robbery and the children have been acting out various parts of the story.
