Kestrels are bloggers!

For our Computing unit this half term we have created our own class blog, where we have posted news about the different things that we have been up to in class.

Please comment on our stories - but remember, be polite and considerate to others in the comments that you make. Hopefully we will now continue our blog to keep you updated on all the latest Kestrels news.

Burwell House day 1...

We arrived at Burwell House in beautiful sunshine and enjoyed exploring the grounds before lunch. This afternoon we took part in lots of fun team challenges, settled into our rooms and were introduced to the TV studio. This evening we practised our map reading with ‘Around the Grounds’, an orienteering challenge, before songs, games and hot chocolate around the campfire. There have been lots of smiles and fun had by all. We even met Buster the Burwell cat, who decided to join us for our campfire. We’re looking forward to our TV studio day tomorrow. Hopefully we’ll manage to post another update. Goodnight from the Burwell team, ready for bed after a busy day!
