Welcome to Kestrel Class!
Class Teacher - Miss Jarvis
HLTA - Mrs Shoesmith
Wow, wow, wow! What an excellent start to the year we have had in Kestrel Class!
It has been wonderful to welcome the children back to school and to see them socialising with their friends, full of enthusiasm, ready to learn and modelling our school values. It has been a pleasure getting to know the children of Kestrel Class and I look forward to this continuing to develop over the year! Miss Jarvis
Our daily routine follows a similar structure to previous years with break time from 10:45-11:00am and lunchtime between 12:10-1:10pm. In Kestrel Class, P.E. will take place on a Wednesday. We would like to encourage the children to come to school dressed in their P.E. kit on their allocated day and to have appropriate clothing in response to the weather conditions.
The children have all been issued with lovely, new reading diaries. Please encourage your child to read as regularly as possible at home and record this in their reading diary. Reading diaries should be brought in to school every day so that teachers and staff can share in the wonderful reading journeys of the children. I can't wait to hear about what is going on in the children's stories!
Homework will be issued on a Friday and is due back the following Wednesday. However, please see the Home Learning 'tab' for more information regarding this.
Britain/Coton at War
This term, our Topic in Kestrel Class will be World War One. We will be: exploring the causes of WW1; investigating what life was like in the trenches and discussing the role of women and children during the war. In addition, we will be making local links, identifying how Coton and residents of the village were affected during WW1. We will use all of this knowledge to support us in writing diary entries and balanced arguments. Please do get in touch if you have any resources or information that may support with this! J
