This week, Kestrels spent the afternoon with Miss She researching an old ping pong computer game. They then had to design and make a modern version. The children came up with some fantastic ideas, using their excellent computing knowledge… well done Kestrels!
Kestrels had a wonderful time during Art’s week. They studied an African American composer – Florence Price. We focussed on her wonderfully uplifting symphony No 1 and produced some incredible African art using, calico and printing ink.
There are also pictures based on a previous artist we studied – Takashi Murakami. I’m sure you’ll agree, the finished pieces were stunning!
Kestrels’ girls had a fabulous time at King Edward VI Northfields School for Girls recently. They were given a music lesson, where they got to play keyboards and ukuleles. They had sheets of music to work from and demonstrated their excellent knowledge of music to the teachers.
Secondly, they had a science lesson, where they got to be forensic scientists to solve a crime. Their investigations involved testing soil samples from the suspect’s shoes and matching teeth samples to a half-eaten apple.
It was a fabulous day and it gave the girls a real insight to how things go at secondary school.
