Red Kites - Mrs S Rayner

Croeso I Red Kites


Welcome to Red Kites. Red Kites are one of the Year 6 classes. Mrs Rayner is the class teacher.  Mrs Withers provides additional support during our lessons. Every other Thursday Mrs Parfittr is in the class and every other Friday Mrs Withers is in the class as Mrs Rayner has PPA and management time.

This term our topic is 'Off with her head' which is a Tudors based topic. We will be looking at Henry VIII and his many wives as well as completing art and DT projects based on the Tudors.

In our language sessions we are studying The Tempest by William Shakespeare and have planned a visit to the local library.  We would like to encourage you all to visit your local library as they are always so welcoming and really go out of their way to provide superb activities for us.

In Maths, we have been focusing on the aspect of number. We have been looking at multiplying and dividing whole numbers and decimals by 10, 100 and 1000 and using these skills to answer word problems. At times we are encouraged to work with our talk partners to solve problems and find answers to the questions posed. We will have opportunities to work with other children as they are changed on a weekly basis.
