Year 6 Kestrels class

Ask Me About

'Ask Me Abouts' will be added here half-termly to keep you informed about what we have been doing and what we intend to do in Kestrels class.


In the Autumn term we will be consolidating and building upon the children's knowledge of place value, the four operations and fractions. Please use the links below to help develop the skills and understanding. Please also make sure that the children are practising their times tables, being able to recall key facts at speed.

Please continue to encourage the children to use the link below to explore maths skills through games.


This term we will be finding out about volcanoes and mountains.
