Red Kites

Welcome to the Red Kites' class. There are 16 children from Years 5 & 6 in this class. English and Maths are taught every morning by Miss Harper and afternoons are organised as follows: Topic with Miss Alexander on Wednesday, Science with Mrs Whitaker on Tuesday, Computing and PSCHE with Miss Harper on Wednesday, PE with Kanga Sports and Upper Wharfedale School on Thursday. Mrs Davey is the teaching assistant working in class each morning.

In Red Kites each pupil develops their independence, resilience and ownership of learning. This helps them develop as confident, effective, responsible individuals with a clear sense of themselves as lifelong learners. Our vibrant curriculum encourages children to develop and think creatively, using higher order thinking skills to challenge their naturally inquisitive minds.
