The Price of Progress - Cost & Reward

Red Kites - Yr5 

Teacher - Miss Lois MacDonald

Welcome to Red Kites! 

Hello all and welcome to the Red Kites Class page. I hope you enjoy looking at what we have been learning and are going to be learning. Also, keep an eye out for any picture updates of our learning. 


Welcome back, Red Kites, to the Summer Term!

I cannot believe that we are already in the Summer Term; where has the time gone? I am really excited to welcome you all back to yet another fun term where we can continue our learning journey together. If there is anything you wish to discuss with us, our door is always open.

This terms topic focus is Space.

Our learning question is, 'How is the world making progress to be able to travel to space and what are the cost?'
