Let's get active! In Kestrel Class we aim to take part in the Golden Mile at least twice a week. It is promoting our stamina and improving our fitness week by week! We are encouraging pupils to walk, jog or run 50 miles during the school year. This term we will be putting our energy into learning more skills surrounding the following focuses:
- Invasion Games
- Indoor athletics
We live in a technological age and so it is only right we grow with it! But in order to make the most of such technology, we need to know how to use it safely and securely to protect ourselves and others around us. Thus, this term we are focusing on being SMART online through research and learning regarding e-safety.
Further on in the term, we will be focusing on sequences and algorithms and will be creating our own!
