Welcome to the Falcons class page! 


This year in the Falcons!


Hello and welcome back to another academic year at Ketton School!

We have a great team this year with 24 Falcons! Mrs Roberts will be working with the class during the morning sessions as classroom assistant and the class will also have the opportunity to work with specialist PE and French teachers! Oh, and I'm the class teacher - Mr Starkey!


Term 4


Our focus during our literacy and topic sessions during term 4 is 'Kettons' Guide to Europe!' This is a topic that will improve our geography skills whilst learning about a specific country throughout Europe. We will then produce a fantastic Informative Guide to all the different countries within Europe and we will publish it. Note to parents: this will be available to buy once printed by a professional publishers!


During maths sessions, we will build on our learning in fractions and begin linking this to decimals and percentages. Also, during Friday maths sessions, we will consolidate our learning from our number work from before Christmas.



  • We will be taking part in the Spotlight Dance Show during the last week of term - more info to follow
  • PE will be on Tuesday and Fridays (French will also be on a Tuesday)
  • Our focus for the term is Resourcefulness and Mutual Respect.


Mr Starkey


Term 3


Our focus for term 3 in literacy and the afternoon sessions will be the BBC's 500 word story writing competition. We are using the book 'Eren - by Simon P. Clark' as a stimulus to get our imaginations running wild! 


In maths, the children will delve into the world of fractions, decimals and percentages. We will get to grips with what they are and how and when they are used in the real world. By the end, we will be getting stuck into some fantastic problem solving tasks.


Other important information includes:

  • PE will be done on a Wednesday and Friday;
  • Our termly R is resilience;
  • Please keep an eye out for Young Voices and Residential information throughout the term.

Term 1




Our topic for the first half term is 'I'm an evacuee - get me out of here!' During our history themed sessions, we will learn about the key events of World War II as well as comparing the lives of evacuees to our own ones!



In maths, we will get stuck into numbers right away! Our place value and rounding skills will be put to the test before moving into the world of negative numbers too. Finally, we will start calculating with numbers before the end of term.



Our first writing topic will be all about diaries! Once we have read and discussed their key features, we will have a go at writing one from the perspective of an evacuee during WW2 - exciting!


Anything else...

  • PE will be on Wednesdays and Fridays this term - please be prepared for indoor or outdoor.
  • Homework will be handed out on a Friday and will need to be completed by the following Friday for self-marking.
  • Ask your children about our new ClassDojo and how we can collect 'Ready to learn' Dojo points for fantastic prizes!


Please feel free to drop in and see me if you have any questions!
