Hello and welcome to The Red Kites Class Page.
We have strong values in the Red Kites class and we learn from the wonderful birds we are named after. Red Kites have come back from the brink of extinction to be a common sight in Oxfordshire. They have shown resilience and resourcefulness to do this. As Red Kites, the children will learn to be more resilient by remembering that we all make mistakes and sometimes it takes longer to understand things. Resilience also teaches us that we shouldn't give up but sometimes we need a break. We will learn about the importance of teamwork and how to support each other as we are stronger when we work together.
As a school, we learn about the 5Rs which help us with our learning and our relationships. The 5Rs are resilience, resourcefulness, respectfulness, reflectiveness and responsibility. The 5Rs help us to be better learners and better members of our school community.
Our main aim in Red Kites is to be kind, respectful and to always aim high. To help us achieve this, we have three core values to guide us. They are:
These are important to us and help us to be the best we can be.
This term, we will be learning about the ancient Egyptians, focusing on their achievements and how we know so much about their everyday lives and history. We will also explore many other wonderful topics over the academic year such as The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Anglo-Saxons, Protecting the Earth, and The History of Medicine.
The Red Kites team is Anita Handa, Lorna Flechais Downs and Karen Wise . Please ask any of us if you have any questions.
