Red Kites

Welcome to the Red Kites' class. There are 20 children from Years 5 & 6 in this class. English and Maths are taught every morning by Mr Cook and afternoons are organised as follows: PE with Kanga Sports on Monday, Science with Mrs Whitaker on Tuesday, Topic with Miss Alexander on Wednesday, French and RE/PSCHE with Mrs Davidson and Miss Alexander on Thusday, Flying School activities followed by Music with the music specialist on Friday. Mrs Clark, Mrs Davidson and Mrs Eddy are the teaching assistants working in class throughout the week.

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.
