Welcome to Kestrels Class at Greenleas Derwent Road. Both myself, Mr Devoy (Class Teacher) and Mrs Tippite (Class Teaching Assistant), 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.
French Wow Day
The children have been learning French during their day and sampling a variety of French foods. They have also worked in teams to create a food sculpture of the Eiffel Tower. Lastly, the class have used their artistic skills to create a French themed Rosette.
British Values Day
The children in Kestrels have had an amazing day, looking at our school's British Values and how these are important in everyday life. They have also had the opportunity to meet and talk to the Mayor of Leighton Buzzard, Cllr Clive Palmer.
Visit to the Quarry!
Kestrels have spent a day visiting a local quarry and comparing it to a quarry that has been filled in and redeveloped in to a man made lake.
Egyptian Wow Day ArtThe children have shown their artistic skills, creating their own Shabti out of clay. They have also spent the morning writing, with their own hieroglyphics.
The whole class have taken part in our Gymnastics sessions and worked extremely hard, improving their skills and displaying what they are already, very capable of.
