Hello and welcome to Kestrels!
Our class teachers are Mrs Crask (Mon-Thurs) and Miss King (Fridays). Miss Clark, Mrs Ahmedzai and Mrs Taylor are our Teaching Assistants who will be supporting our learning each week.
In our first term, we will be learning about the Ancient Egyptians and making links with other historical periods using timelines to help us. During the year, we will study many other exciting topics including The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Anglo-Saxons. We start our topics with a WOW day which is always an exciting way to begin learning about something new. At the end of a topic, we celebrate our learning as well as present and share our topic homework together. We also have our much anticipated Year 4 Youlbury residential to look forward to in the spring.
In our class, we strive to be our very best and celebrate our achievements in a supportive way. In order that we can be successful, we reflect on our three core values every day:
P.E. takes place twice weekly and is a valuable part of our curriculum. Please ensure that you have your P.E. kit and a named water bottle with you in school at all times.
It is important that your reading journal is signed at least 5 times every week and you bring it into school each Monday when our achievements are celebrated within the class. We have a good range of books that you can borrow to read at home and you are very welcome to change them any time. We have weekly times tables set in Times Tables Rockstars too and sometimes compete in tournaments!
I am really excited about our new year ahead and am sure we will enjoy making new discoveries together. If you have any questions or queries, please do ask.
