General Information


Hello and welcome to Kestrel Class!


I have listed below the key information for you about Kestrel Class but don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions or queries.


Spellings are handed out on a Friday and are tested the following Friday. The spellings are based on the work we are doing in class and on Year 3 and 4 Common Exception words.


Please bring in your reading book and reading diary into school every day. Try and read to an adult every day at home for 10 to 15 minutes, those children who read four or more times each week will be awarded with a certificate.


Homework is given out on a termly basis. Homework tasks will be varied and you may choose which tasks you would like to complete. Spare copies will also be available in the classroom. Parents - if you're able to spend some time helping the children on their homework, that would be fantastic.


Our PE lessons this year will take place on Wednesday afternoons every week. Our outdoor classroom slot will alternate every other Friday morning. Please ensure your child comes into school wearing their full PE Kit on Wednesdays, making sure they have layers in case they are cold or too warm. Could we also ask that the children are provided with an additional set of outdoor classroom clothes on a Friday just in case your child becomes wet or muddy.



Remember to bring in a water bottle and please remember to name your water bottle. Drinking water helps your brain to function better!


Thank you, 


Miss La Croix

Get your TTRockStars Passwords ready for the competition starting 9th November - 14th November.  Good Luck!


Dear Parent/Carer,

As part of our commitment to make maths exciting and high profile in our school, this November we are taking part in a competition for Maths Week England. It’s called Rock Out 2020 and it’s all done online via

For every correct answer to a multiplication or division question, your child will earn their class a point. The Times Tables Rock Stars platform will calculate the class average (the number of correct answers per pupil in the class who play during the competition hours). Winning classes in the school and in the country as a whole will be the ones with the highest average.

All game modes (Gig, Garage, Studio, etc.) will count but only from games played between 7.30am and 7.30pm on Monday 9th, Tuesday 10th, Wednesday 11th, Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th.

In the spirit of the competition, please don’t play on their behalf but by all means encourage and support them to the extent that it doesn’t cause high stress levels or impact on family plans. We suggest a limit of half an hour a day outside school hours – some will play more, some will play less.
