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. On Friday afternoons, during term 5, the children will be taught Music and RE.
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, the children will be given a SATs practice task - they also need to continue practising their times tables and using Mathletics. 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.
This is a very important term for the children in Year 6, with SATs just a few weeks away, and in Kestrels class they have been working incredibly hard to make sure they do as well as they possibly can. I am very proud of their attitude and resilience, and know that they will all do their very best. SATs week is the 14th May.
Our topic this term is The Ancient Eqyptians - and the children are very excited about this! We will complete art work linked to the Ancient Egyptians, and the children will use independent learning skills to create their own project. In science they will be learning about electricity and evolution.
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
