Welcome to Kestrel's Class Page!
This is our class page and it is where you can find information, pictures, videos and website links about what Kestrel class have been doing and learning about during the week.
The most recent pictures and updates will be at the top of the page but feel free to scroll down to have a look at earlier posts in the year
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 in Letters and Sounds and on Year 3 and 4 Common Exception words. If you lose your spellings, there will be spare copies in the classroom for you to take.
Children, 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. For our Year 4 Kestrels, Swimming lessons will occur every Thursday afternoon. Our outdoor classroom slot will alternate every other Friday morning. Please ensure your child has their labelled PE, Outdoor Classroom and Swimming kits in school on these days.
I would be very grateful to any helpers who would like to come in on a regular basis to hear readers as this has a huge impact on our young readers. The children will also be busy practising their times tables with our ’77 Club’ so if anyone is free for period of time it would be amazing. If you would like to volunteer to help us, please pop in and speak to me or a member of the office team.
Children, try and remember to bring in a water bottle and please remember to name your water bottle. Drinking water helps your brain to function better!
