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. Mrs Clift will also teach the class on Thursday afternoon. PE sessions will be on Monday and Thursday.
Homework will be set on Friday and we expect it to be handed in on Tuesday, which gives the children plenty of time to complete it. Children will have a piece of Maths and a piece of English homework. The children also need to practise their times tables and use Mathletics. It would be brilliant if you could hear your children read regularly and complete their reading diaries. Reading with your children is important (and great for our word count) so we need to encourage the children to read as much as possible.
Our topic this term is 'War Child', where the children will be learning about children's lives during World War 2. They are already very interested and are asking lots of questions. In science they will be learning about humans and other animals, electricity and light.
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
- Star of the week -
Or star of the week this week is Rainey Journeaux
Rainey had the most improved score in our Accelerated Reading star tests, which is amazing! She loves reading and has particularly enjoyed books from our World War 2 topic boxes. She asks brilliant and searching questions about our topic - considering the very big issues of the holocaust, why Hitler became so powerful and why World War 2 started. Great thinking skills and engagement Rainey - well done!
