Skipping Race

Obstacle Course

Running Races

Here we are completing our sponsored event. Kestrel Class decided they would like to run or walk 2 miles (or more) every day in 30 minutes. All the children did incredibly well and many surprised themselves! Well done Kestrels for fantastic motivation, determination and perseverance!

Investigating friction in Science!

Kestrel Class were challenged to create miniature versions of the four different types of Stone Age homes we have learned about in our topic lesson. The children worked so well together and made clever use of the natural resources available to them in the Outdoor Classroom, very well done Kestrels!

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,
