Week 1 (4.1.21)

Tuesday 5th January


Hello Kestrel Class 


I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break, even though it was a bit different this year! I look forward to talking to you on ‘Teams’ very soon but for now whilst we get that up and running…


…here is a selection of work for you to complete today (Tuesday 5th January). I have uploaded a New Year’s Reading Comprehension all about how New Years is celebrated in different countries, you can choose *, ** or *** (think about which one you normally do in class!), there is also a maths challenge which incorporates the year 2021! 


For your writing today, I would like you to write a letter to the world. Your letter needs to answer the following things:


  • Your thoughts about the year 2020. Can you sum up the year for us as a planet?
  • What did you enjoy about last year? Talk about a time or moment that you found really fun or made you laugh!
  • What did you find tricky about the year? Talk about something that you found hard about last year – could be lockdown/not seeing friends/family.
  • What are you looking forward to about 2021?
  • What do you hope for the world in the coming year?


Start your letter like this…


Dear World, 


I am writing to you today, on Tuesday 5th January 2021, to discuss my thoughts and feelings about 2020 and the year we are about to embark upon…


Speak to you soon, 


Miss Paul
