Welcome to Kestrels Class page.

Kestrels caters for children in year 6.

We enjoy a thematic approach to the curriculum, which means that all of our National Curriculum subjects and learning are linked to one area of study.

Throughout the course of one academic year, we cover three different themes (one per term) and lessons are differentiated to support and extend all of the children in the class.

We learn through high quality classroom based activities, which cater for all learning styles. Lessons are enhanced by trips, visitors and outside learning.

We have started to participate in outdoor learning activities. Please ensure your child has wellies and outdoor clothing (such as waterproof trousers) in school.

**Home Learning**

Alongside revision books, we are sending home learning for both English and Maths. Please check this class page for any updates and contact me if you need any support.

Important information:

  • Please remember that the children need to have both a PE and Forest School kit in school at all times, as the subjects must be done in the proper clothing and footwear.
  • English and Maths homework is set on Wednesday. It must be returned the following Monday.
  • Spellings are given out on a Friday, ready for the weekly Spelling Test on the following Friday morning. Please don’t forget to help your child to learn their Spelling Bee words, too.
  • The children are currently being tested on the Times Tables each week, and so will need to practise them at home. Your child has a Times Table Rockstars account which they can access from home, and this will help them with their learning.

If you have any questions or concerns, please come and speak to me.
