Kelso Abbey is a spectacular abbey situated in the Scottish town south of Edinburgh and dating back to the 12th century, to the time of King David I. It was once one of the largest and most religious centres in Scotland but was disestablished in 1559 and now lies in ruins.
Unlike it’s namesake, Kelso class is a vibrant, lively class of year 5 and year 6 children, who are eager to learn. We work hard in order to prepare for year 6 SATs and for secondary school but we also have fun with class trips, themed days and a range of activities linked to our topic and science. As the children near their final year at primary school, they take on more responsibilities such as Play Leaders and Mini-Police. They also have more opportunities to represent the school in a variety of different sporting events, such as netball, tag rugby, football, swimming and athletics. With the pressures of SATs still a year away but with the extra responsibility and opportunities, Year 5 is arguably the best year of primary school.
