This morning a number of children enjoyed a range of sports down at the Culverhay Sports Centre. The children really enjoyed their time and returned with the ‘bronze medal’.
A number of children from Kestrel enjoyed tag-tails on Monday. The children grew in confidence as the day progressed and ended with a flourish – a victory over Castle school.
Tertiary colours – sometimes called ‘intermediate’ colours – can be created by using only the primary colours as a base. This afternoon, Kestrel class enjoyed skilfully manipulating colours to create their own palette, which we shall use for future art work.
The six tertiary colours we created are as follows:
- amber or marigold = yellow-orange
- lime-green or chartreuse = yellow-green
- cinnabar or vermilion = reddish-orange
- magenta (mauvish-crimson) = reddish-violet
- indigo = blueish-violet
- teal or aqua = blueish-green
Kestrel heard stories from various teachers throughout the Junior department today.
This afternoon we had the pleasure of welcoming in Charlotte’s Dad who taught the children how to use ‘boom whackers’.
Forthcoming Saturday workshops…
Earlier on in the week, Kestrel enjoyed a debate on which country ‘won the Space Race’. The children argued politely and persuasively, making their points in reference to the countries’ achievements in history.
This afternoon we explored the question: ‘does the mass of an object increase the depth of a crater?’ The children enjoyed finding out.
Last week, Kestrel class spent a session discussing how to be safe and wise online and how to respond in different situations. They worked in small groups on a quiz and offered their own (very sensible) suggestions. We also looked at the website below.
The children of Kestrel all enjoyed the trip to ‘We the Curious’. One of the highlights was the time spent in the ‘Planetarium’ where they saw how the skies look during the winter season.
