Kestrel

Welcome to Kestrel Class. We are a mixed year 5 and 6 class. Our teacher is Miss Dale and our teaching assistant is Mrs Hulbert.

 

This term we are travelling back 8000 years to the Ancient Egyptians. We have already looked at tomb curses and have written our own curses in hieroglyphics. Next week we shall be looking in detail at the process of mummification!

 

This week's homework on building an Ancient Egyptian Pyramid can be accessed using the link below

Last week year 5 and 6 took a trip down to the ODEON to watch the BBC Ten Pieces- an introduction to classical music. It opened our eyes to both contemporary and more classical pieces of music.

 

Click on the link below to access the clips from all 10 pieces.

Which was your favourite piece? What picture or story does it evoke in your mind? Can you identify any of the instruments within the music?
