Growing In Faith and Learning
Welcome to Kestrels!
Kestrels Class is part of Key Stage Two with the Year 4/5 children, taught by Mrs Hunt, Mrs Cooke and Mrs Green.
Mrs Hunt teaches Kestrels on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays and Mrs Cooke teaches Thursday and Friday. Together, with Mrs Green (Teaching Assistant), we strive to provide the best possible learning and nurturing experiences for the children in our class.
Our first theme is SPACE: We have developed our Cosmic Reading Area in class and our class novel is 'Cosmic' by Frank Cottrell Boyce. We will be looking at 'Starry Night' by Vincent Van Gogh in Art and Science will be based on Earth, the Moon and the Solar System. We are hoping to book a class trip relating to this topic later on in the term too - Watch this space!
The children receive merits for reading at home and having their journals signed by an adult. Please encourage your child to read and remind them to bring reading books and journals to school every day as we jot notes and Home Learning in them too. Thank you.
One piece of Maths and one piece of English will be set on Fridays. It is to be returned completed in school by the following Wednesday. Spellings and Mental Maths or Time Tables will also be tested during the week. Handwriting may also be set for those requiring extra practise.
Indoor kit - Mondays
Outdoor kit - Thursdays
Please make sure that a full kit is kept in school at all times and that jewellery is removed and long hair is tied back. Thank you.
Children should have a water bottle in school each day please.
