Welcome to Kestrels class!
Miss Collins is our Class Teacher.
In Term 1, we will be learning all about London. We will be looking from both a geographical and artistic view with Banksy being our artist of interest. The children will be learning about the importance of the River Thames now and in history. Our focus in English will be the book 'Way Home' which is linked to our topic of London.
We will be doing PE on a Monday so please ensure your child has the appropriate PE kit in school and that it is labelled. I would recommend packing something warmer as the weather gets colder because the children will be doing PE outside as much as possible.
Please continue to use Class Dojo to get in touch. There will also be regular updates on the class page.
There are many useful websites including: Mathletics, Times Table Rockstars and Purple Mash. I have included links to these below.
Homework will be set every Friday and will be due in the following Wednesday. It will be set via Class Dojo. Your child will also be given weekly spelling lists to learn every Friday and they will be tested on the following Friday. We ask that you please support your child in completing their homework by the stated date and in practising their spellings in preparation for weekly tests. Daily reading will also be included as part of the homework and children are encouraged to have their reading records in school everyday.
