The Great Kestrels Bake Off!!
16.10.18 We have had a wonderful time creating drawings of Mammogrumps, so named because they are from the Stone Age, have descended from the Woolly Mammoth and are grumpy! We created these using oil pastels and will put them on display in the school because we love them so much.
7.11.18 We learnt about  Divali with Kites class.
We have buried some items to see what will happen to them over time. In history we have been thinking about what would remain today from the Iron Age.
We wrote final versions of instructions on how to wash a woolly mammoth. We had worked on first drafts and edited our work to improve it. we are really proud of our work and Mrs Reid cam in to congratulate us.
We also made woolly mammoths in groups using milk bottles.
Kestrels were archaeologists and dug up items to see what remained without decaying. They then re-enacted life in the Stone Age and had a fire that was lit using flint.
As a special treat they toasted marshmallows.
18.12.18 We visited our local church to look at symbols of light and to look at the Advent Wreath.
July 12th  Art we have created these beautiful bowls
