Welcome to Kestrels!
Kestrel Class teachers are Ms Edwards, who teaches from Tuesday to Friday and Mrs Clift, who teaches on Monday. Our TA is Mrs Gilpin and on a Friday afternoon Miss Caddick will teach RE and 'Go Active' will teach PE.
Homework will be set on Thursday and we expect it to be handed in on Wednesday, which gives the children plenty of time to complete it. Children will have a task linked to topic, science or our story-telling unit - they will also have a spelling or grammar task. For maths homework, we would like the children to complete a Mathletics task - they also need to practice their times tables travels. It would be brilliant if you could hear your children read regularly and complete their reading diaries. Reading with your child is important (and great for our word count) so we need to encourage the children to read as much as possible.
For our topic this term the children will be learning about South America and the Amazon Rainforest and in science they are learning about animal classification. In Art lessons the children have been learning about Frida Kahlo - they have completed some amazing self-portraits - in her style.
During this term we will also be preparing the children for their SATs tests in May.
If you have any questions please come and see us before or after school and we will be more than happy to help!
Ms Edwards and Mrs Clift
