Welcome to the Red Kites’ class page!

Red Kites are a fun, creative class who love to learn. We are determined to do well and try our best in everything we do. We love being challenging and push ourselves to achieve our full potential. 

As a class, we have set up our class commitments. These are behaviours which we have agreed and can be seen below. 



All about us

Mrs Smerdon and Miss Haycock share the teaching of the class.

Mrs Smerdon teaches on a Monday, Tuesday morning and Friday.

Miss Haycock teaches on a Tuesday afternoon, Wednesday and Thursday. 


"I have taught at Bradley Barton for six years now after teaching in London for a few years before. I am really lucky as I lead our exciting curriculum across the school. Something many people don't know about me as I am a big football fan and a huge Arsenal supporter. I believe it is really important to always be pushing yourself and learning all the time. I am currently learning about how to always ensure children are challenged and this is something I am really enjoying." Miss Haycock.


"I have been at Bradley Barton for almost six years and I am the Geography Leader and the Educational Visit Coordinator for the school. I am currently really interested in researching and pursuing how our school community could make links with schools around the world and creating global partnerships with the aim of achieving many of our school curriculum objectives. I am really excited to see how this progresses." Mrs Smerdon.


If you ever need to contact either teacher, we will endeavour to get back to any queries on Class Dojo within 2 working days and will only check messages in working hours where possible (9am to 5pm). Please contact the school office if you have any urgent messages.

Year 6 S.A.T.s tests

In May 2021, Year 6 will take part in the statutory tests for the end of Key Stage 2. These tests are based on all the learning the children have done during KS2 and the children will be adequately prepared in school. If you have any queries about the tests, please do get in contact with either class teacher.
