Welcome to Kestrels Class!
Kestrels is our year 6 class, taught by Miss Joseph.
At Cotton End Forest School, we are committed to providing a knowledge-based curriculum which is linked to ‘Learning Beyond the Classroom’ opportunities. This approach is hands-on, broad and balanced, and provides our pupils with opportunities to gain essential knowledge, skills and understanding. We intend that all children should enjoy their learning, achieve their potential and become independent life-long learners with skills which will allow them to meet the challenges of the 21st century..
Through a creative, holistic, outdoor-focused approach, we will aim high, striving for every child to achieve highly, both academically and socially. Through learning opportunities in the classroom and beyond, including Forest School, our curriculum will nurture curious minds, stretch imaginations and provide opportunities for every child to become leaders in their own right. We believe that education takes place beyond the walls of the classroom, and we utilise our outdoor space to promote a fully inclusive environment where children feel safe and confident to try new things.
In Kestrels class, children continue to develop the skill of working independently and children are encouraged to challenge themselves across the curriculum.
The children learn through a range of high quality classroom based activities, which cater for all learning styles. All learning is promoted through the school ethos and vision to provide our children with opportunities to become confident, happy children valuing and respecting diversity and who are proud of their achievements.
