Kestrels

Welcome to Kestrels!

Hello and welcome to Kestrel's class page. I hope you all had a wonderful summer holiday and are ready for an action-packed term. The children are all very excited about this year's learning journey - they are now in their last year of primary school and we plan to make it the best one yet! My name is Mrs Walters and I am Kestrel's class teacher this year. Many of you will know me already as I have taught almost all of the class before when they were in Key Stage 1. Also working with the children will be Mrs Burch, who will teach the children on Tuesday afternoons and Miss Down, our class TA. Children's PE lessons will take place on a Monday, and they will be taught by Mr Blacker and Miss Kane

 

Important notices

  • Don't forget that PE is every Monday. Children must wear their PE kit to school, including their brand new hoodies and shirts. Please ensure the new hoodies are only worn on PE days.
  • Children have now got their reading books ready to read at home. Please encourage your child to read daily.  It would be brilliant if you could hear your child read regularly as your questioning helps to develop reading comprehension skills. If you'd like any guidance on how you can support reading for meaning, please don't hesitate to pop in an see me. Once children have read their book, they can bring it in to school and do a quiz.

  • Please ensure children bring their coats to school each day as the weather can be quite changeable. 

  • Children will be doing their Times Tables Travels on Wednesdays. I will be pushing them to practise these regularly, so if you get any chance to test them, please do!  

 

Curriculum

Our topic this term is 'The Victorians', where the children will be learning all about the Victorian era. The pupils will be learning and writing stories about various Victorian ways of life and will have the opportunity to deepen their understanding of this era. The pupils are enthusiastic about this topic and I know that many have already shown much interest in Victorian way of life and inventions. We look forward to the children gaining a deeper understanding of this era with a visit to Morwellham Quay, where they will also have the opportunity to experience a day in the life of a Victorian child.

Please help your child to understand any new vocabulary that they might find tricky. Spelling tests will be done on Friday and new spelling lists will be sent out ready for the following week. In addition to spellings, children will bring home their current times table sheet.  Further details on homework will follow shortly.
