Kestrels Class


Latest News

Welcome back and Happy 2018. We hope you had a super Christmas and that Santa was good to you!

This term will be a very busy one. Our main topic for the term will be ‘The Legacy of Ancient Greece’. We will also be writing stories to enter for the 500 word story competition. Mrs Henderson will be making pneumatic toys with the children in DT. They will be modelled on some of the monsters from Greek myths so they should be good fun.

We will also be doing lots of preparation for SATS and it is really important that you help your children with their weekly homework or look through it with them when they have attempted it. Learning their spellings each week will really help them with the spelling section of the SPAG SAT. Maths homework is given out on a Tuesday and should be handed in the following Monday. Please encourage your child to at least look at it before Thursday so that they can ask me about it if they are confused. Leaving it until the weekend and then getting stuck can cause them unnecessary stress. Spellings are given out on a Friday and are tested on the following Friday.

Please encourager your children to take advantage of the ICT suite before and after school. It is a great opportunity to practise skills that they have covered in class. I am usually in the classroom at these times if there is something they are struggling with and would like extra help. This is also a good time to come and ask about any homework that they are finding tricky.

If you have any questions do come in and ask me.

All the best for 2018. 

Miss Felgate and Mrs Henderson
