Kestrels having fun, learning how to play tennis.
Summer Term is here.
Our topic for this half term is called Super Sleuth.
We are looking forward to visiting the beautiful setting of Tatton Park, this week for an exciting start to our History work about
'The Anglo-Saxons and Vikings'.
This is what they say about the visit-
'Explore the turbulent world of the Anglo Saxons and Vikings in 10th Century AD in this exciting, hands-on workshop. Arrive at our settlement just after a Viking raid has taken place and see the effects it has had on the Anglo Saxon community. Our historical characters will help you examine what life was like for these two groups of people; considering home life, religion, work, battle, trade, food, language and geography.'
What a busy Spring Term we had!
Our final Master Chef week, children made a delicious Fruit Tart. Children thoroughly enjoyed their cooking sessions and eating. This week the winners were Mia, Rebecca C, Lee, Kaitlyn and Summer. Well done. Thank you to all the parents for your support.

They have been learning different songs and practicing drumming, ready for an end of year performance for school and parents. Their music teacher Mr Fitson comes every week to help them practice and teach them new rhythms.
Last week Friday, Kestrels visited the Gurdwara in Preston. The educational trip was for their learning in RE about Sikhism and British Values. The children were able to see different parts of the Gurdwara and learn about their religious beliefs and rituals. The Gurdwara provided refreshments and snacks for the children and talk through their history and worship. The children and staff were able to take away so much knowledge of their religion and discuss further at school. Thank you to all parents for your support in this :)
Kestrels became chefs once again this week! They all enjoyed making and eating their super healthy and delicious fruit salad full of different fruits and orange juice. They worked hard in their groups cutting their fruit into pieces and getting in all prepped, ready to be judged once again. Well done to Maisie, Rebecca C, Aimee-Leigh, Fin and Olivia Mai for winning this week. Thank you to all the parents for being supportive and sending the ingredients for the children.
Kestrels are tourists in Columbia this week. In Geography we have been focusing on countries from around the world, Fairtrade food from other countries. The children have been using Purple Mash to create their own postcards from Columbia and their experience. Some children are also creating Fairtrade posters to explain why it is important and why we should buy those products.
Last week in Food Technology, Kestrel class made a Fruit Fromage using ingredients they had bought in. Children worked together in a group, delegating jobs, designing and decorating their final piece ready for judging. All groups did a superb job making their food and definitely enjoyed eating it. The group of boys won the Masterchef challenge last week, well done Joshua, Luke, Sam and Alfie.
