Welcome to Kestrels!
Our class teachers are Mrs Crask (Mon-Thurs) and Mr Friedhoff (Fridays). We also have two Teaching Assistants who will be supporting us in our learning: Mrs Oram and Mrs Downs.
In term one, we will be learning about Ancient Egyptians and making links with other historical periods using timelines to help us. During the year, we will also study many other exciting topics including The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Anglo-Saxons and Protecting the Earth. We like to have special days in school in order to bring our topics to life. Please support us when we have our fab finishes; we look forward to seeing you even if that is remotely on Zoom this year!
Our main aim in Kestrels is to be our very best and to celebrate our achievements in a supportive way. In order that we can be successful, our three core values are important to us:
P.E. takes place twice weekly and is a valuable part of our curriculum. Please ensure that your child has their P.E. kit and a named water bottle with them in school at all times.
It is important that you continue to sign your child’s reading journal at least 5 times per week and bring it into school every Monday when our 5 read achievements are celebrated within the class. We have a good range of books that children can borrow to read at home and they are very welcome to change them at any time throughout the week.
Thank you for your support! Please do not hesitate to ask if you have any questions or queries.
